Guests riding Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will still hear the “Holiday Remix” song today after an “emergency issue” prevented Imagineers from swapping the soundtrack following the end of the Festival of the Holidays yesterday. Cast Members did not elaborate on what the “emergency issue” was, but the ride was functioning normally today and yesterday, with the exception of the incorrect soundtrack.
Officially, the Holiday Remix was supposed to end with the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays on December 30th and swap back to normal songs yesterday, December 31st, but the swap back to the normal soundtrack didn’t go as planned and the Holiday Remix is still playing today.
Cast Members said that overnight testing is scheduled again tonight in an attempt to get the normal soundtrack back, but were noncommital on what soundtrack would be available to guests tomorrow, January 2nd. Apparently, it’s not as easy as just flipping a switch between the soundtracks, perhaps because each train has onboard audio and they each need to be independently tested and verified. That said, the work, if it goes as planned, should’ve allowed for an overnight swap.
Here are our videos of the Holiday Remix, and some of the normal songs that should return shortly.
