Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is speeding towards its scheduled Summer 2022 opening. Walt Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley shared his excitement for Epcot’s first coaster by posting a picture of the ride’s loading area on Instagram.
Riddley’s Instagram post also shows the original concept art for the loading area.

Riddley says the ride is “unlike anything we’ve ever done,” and more details will be released soon.
“It’s a stunning space – where EPCOT guests will get a chance to step aboard a Nova Corps ship and load into their Starjumper vehicles to take off with the Guardians of the Galaxy on a race through time and space! Our ride team has been hard at work testing this innovative ride system which we call an Omnicoaster.”
Tests will continue to run on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind before its Summer 2022 opening. An official date hasn’t been announced, but one executive may have leaked a Memorial Day Weekend debut.
We’d expect Disney to conduct a lengthy test or preview window before the ride opens. Cast members and possibly annual passholders may get to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind before it opens. Stay tuned.
