During D23 Expo Japan, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced Epcot’s new highly anticipated “Guardians of the Galaxy” attraction will indeed be a roller coaster – in fact, it will be one of the world’s largest enclosed roller coasters. It’ll also feature a unique story currently being created by Walt Disney Imagineering and include a new innovative ride system that’s guaranteed to “wow” guests.
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ coaster will be located in Future World and is said to open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 2021.
When American Adventure reopens from refurbishment later this month, the Epcot attraction will have received some fresh updates.
According to Disney Parks Blog, the team at Epcot has been busy converting the attraction to an all-digital projection system, and installing a new screen and new speakers so the show will look and sound better than ever before.
In addition to the update from film to digital, the show’s finale will return with some notable faces from America’s recent history. Newly-added American icons include individuals such as music composer John Williams, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and noted ballerina Misty Copeland.
And that’s not all: the iconic anthem “Golden Dream” has been re-recorded with all-new orchestration that brings the beloved music and lyrics to life in a way that will resonate more than ever.
American Adventure is scheduled to reopen February 15.
