RUMOR: Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Epcot?

Who doesn’t love a good rumor? We’ve generally been quiet on the subject of rumors due to their nature and our credibility called into question, but here we go.

The latest rumor that we’ve seen gain considerable traction is that Guardians of the Galaxy is coming to Epcot. The Guardians of the Galaxy IP has been thrown around quite a bit for the past few months. Many said that it would be replacing Tower of Terror or Rock N’ Roller Coaster, but it seems that the IP will now find a home in Epcot… of all places.

With the success of Frozen Ever After in Norway, it seems like Iger & Co. aren’t afraid of throwing whichever IP they can into a space to drive revenue. (We’ll leave any further commentary on Epcot and it’s fading identity to others).

As the rumor goes, there is a plan in place to budget hundreds of millions of dollars to replace Ellen’s Energy Adventure with a Guardians of the Galaxy ride. This would be part of a “Phase 2” of new projects, with Phase 1 rumored to focus on Innoventions. No word yet on what type of ride it might be.

  1. Boy have we lost our way. I can accept each of the showcase pavilions having a Disney character ride like Frozen. But, Future World?

    The Epcot concept needs to be totally revised.

    The World Showcase with another country like Brazil could add the Alpine Bobsleds to Germany, a Brother Bear ride to Canada, Aladdin to Morocco etc.

    However, instead of Future World rename it Discovery Land. Captain Nemo’s Sea with 20000 Leagues in the Sea, Imagining Horizons, a combination of these two former attractions) could replace Imaginations. Restore the World of Motion, Wonders of Life adding Disney Characters to tell the story. Energy needs to be replaced by Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth to show Earth’s physical and tectonic and atmospheric forces at work. The Carousel of Progress and Its a Small World should be relocated here. Time Racers in Planet Earth like HG Wells Time Machine. Mars is transformed into Guardians or even Star Wars
