    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to make a dedicated thread to this rumor. The Energy pavilion is supposedly closing in September to make way for a ride based on Guardians of the Galaxy. Will add another Guardians ride to the Wonders of Life pavilion. Please let me know if I need to update any of my information.
    • Energy is getting a GotG overhaul, green lit.
    • Wonders might get a GotG phase 2, not yet green lit..
    • Communicore (outside of mouse gear and starbucks, possibly club cool) will be updated/overhauled, green lit.
    • Mission Space will get a refurb/update, green lit.
    • There are plans for Imagination, but not green lit.
    • Land will remain as is
    • Seas will remain as is
    • Test Track will remain as is
    • Space Ship Earth will remain as is

    September could be a little early.

    Wonders will likely be demoed if the plan happens.

    Do you know what type of rides are planned? Around what time are you hearing for Phase 1 to be done?

    This is all over the internet now. This is why you have to have this as your go-to site for WDW information. You always hear it here first.

    @P_Radden made a nice summary:

    • Energy is getting a GotG overhaul, green lit.
    • Wonders might get a GotG phase 2, not yet green lit..
    • Communicore (outside of mouse gear and starbucks, possibly club cool) will be updated/overhauled, green lit.
    • Mission Space will get a refurb/update, green lit.
    • There are plans for Imagination, but not green lit.
    • Land will remain as is
    • Seas will remain as is
    • Test Track will remain as is
    • Space Ship Earth will remain as is

    This is off topic, but who are the three insiders?

    I know marni1971 is one.

    I'm going to try to stay up with the rumor. I leave and come back and it's already at page 117. I hope so though if it is true. I haven't even been to Ellen's Energy though or the Universe thing. Meant to go this last time. I am just so eager to drink.

    Slightly off topic, does this mean that ToT in DCA is still getting the GOTG overlay? Since it sounds like there will be a purpose built attraction for Epcot, could it potentially make it's way over to the into the new Marvel Land and save ToT there?

    This feels weird. On one hand, Guardians of the Galaxy feels so inherently un-EPCOT.

    On the other hand, UoE and WoL feel so inherently un-Future World.

    Future World is good for me with Guardians.

    Poor Ellen and BIll Nye. If the ride portion was faster, and the car seats not so uncomfortable, I would go on Energy every visit.
    I do enjoy the Ellen movie part.
    I will miss you Ellen, even if no one else does.
