Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is an exhilarating roller coaster at EPCOT that takes guests on an unforgettable space journey. EPCOT’s first coaster is a blast (click here to read our spoiler-free review) and has so much going on that repeat rides may feel like a brand new experience.
Disney is able to make each ride feel unique through overwhelming visuals, a super fun ride system, and a set of six songs that randomly play for each coaster train. Guests won’t know which song they’ll get until they’re blasted off on the ride’s reverse launch.
Here are the songs that guests may hear during their ride.
Cosmic Rewind Song List
- “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire
- “Disco Inferno” by the Trammps
- “Conga” by Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine
- “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears
- “I Ran” by A Flock of Seagulls
- “One Way or Another” by Blondie
In addition to the songs listed above, Disney used a special ‘Holiday Mixtape’ song during the 2022 winter months. The song ‘Run, Run, Rocket‘ mashup played for every ride during the 2022 holidays. However, it doesn’t look like Disney is planning to bring back the festive song in 2023.

Can You Pick Your Song on Cosmic Rewind?
Guests can’t pick their song on Cosmic Rewind. Songs are selected randomly by the control system each time a coaster train is dispatched. It’s all luck of the draw whether you’ll get “Conga” or “September” or a different song on your journey. There’s no use trying to pick a specific train or seat. It’s all random.
Our first ride on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind was to the song “I Ran” (I ran so far awayyyyy) by A Flock of Seagulls. We thought the song fit perfectly on the ride and blended in well with the on-ride commentary from the Guardians of the Galaxy. Honestly, we think all of the songs fit the vibe nicely, though each makes the coaster feel a bit different.
Guests will also hear a wide variety of classic songs when they exit the coaster and head back into EPCOT. The music in the hallways leading out of Cosmic Rewind have a great collection of hits from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.
