No one is going to boycott. Yes, there will an initial bump in attendance, like any new E attraction would do. I'm not against UOE being replaced and I'm not opposed to the ride itself. I'm saying the ride is in the wrong park.

I'm looking for more here. Why do you believe that? Why can't they use Guardians just like they used Ellen and Jeopardy all these years? And what is the ride even going to be?

From their blog post:

"First, a “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired attraction will be added to Future World, adhering to the original vision of Epcot’s Future World as the place to experience the excitement and adventure offered by space travel."

First off I love space so that's interesting to me. Second, we don't know what kind of an experience it will be.

It’s a roller coaster through space. It’s not about Energy and not about the future (the Marvel Theme Park Universe is set in the present)

One revised a current attraction using an 30 year old solidified educational entertainment TV show. It kept the same traveling theater system.

The other ruined the cohesiveness of Future Land and shoehorned a flash in the pan IP.

UoE should have received an update, this is not what it deserved.

I'm sick of the opinions and desires of basic Disney "fans", those who have no god dang respect for the core themes and values of Epcot, those that set the park apart from literally every theme park in the world, getting a platform to spew their nonsense. Yes, I have no doubt this attraction will be great fun; no denying they will spare no effort. I'm sure the queue and other elements of the show will be top notch. But it doesn't change the fact this is another ill placed attracted based on a crap movie franchise.

I can live with your poor judgment of me. I hope you can do the same!

I am sad to see a classic go away. I love UOE and the tech marvels around it. It's seen better days, heck the sound proof doors don't even shut properly most the time now.

I think it's funny to see them tie the Guardians into Epcot Center of the past. Blue sky: I would love to see them restore the original UOE preshow and then half way through it, a young Peter Quill lookalike in the crowd is interacting with a breakdown in the attraction show. The automatic doors open and the new ride is revealed.

Anyone who think this is a great addition is frankly unintelligent and their opinion shouldn't be taken seriously. I'm not sorry.

It's frankly why I despise most of my Disney friends, they're mindless drones who lap up everything Disney throws at them.

Someone needs to step off that pedestal.

Some of us aren't just content, some of us are overjoyed. Not only was it a long overdue death sentence for that horrible and unpopular ride, it's being replaced with something that's sure to be amazing.

The Guardians ToT turned out well and that was a cheap overlay. The sky's the limit with actual space and creative freedom to make an E-Ticket based on these beloved heroes!

I think this might be the most offensive thing I've ever read on WDWMagic

Clearly you've never stop by the Hall of Presidents threads...

The philosophy is the same. Six Flags views their parks as "themed" because of branded rides. Disney today views their parks as "themed" because of branded rides.

I think someone here doesn't know what they are talking about... :rolleyes:

This is frankly insane, I respect that you have the right to your own opinions (although I don't respect your opinion, not sorry because you clearly don't respect mine), but wow, I mean just wow! Do people enjoy being around you with all that negative energy just clinging to you like a shroud of depression? I imagine you look like Pig-Pen from The Peanuts, except instead of a cloud of dirt you seem to be enveloped by a cloud of hate and vile anger. I worry for your mental state because hosing that putrid outlook must have severe side effects to your health. You sir have my pity because you really must live a lonely and depressing existence if this is truly how you present yourself to your fellow peers. I hope you get the help that you desperately need, and may God have mercy upon your soul!

Because they don't have actual working Studios in a park anymore. DHS has become the "Identity Crisis Park."
Maybe try focusing on the positive. DHS has been a ghost town of innovation for decades. The old Hollywood theme for the most part is outdated, problematic, and extremely limiting, hence nothing growing out of it for decades. They're finally getting their act together and announcing some attractions people will actually be excited about. In just a few years this will be THE park to go to. I can't wait!

Nothing has me more excited than this Guardians pavilion though. So happy they're getting such a huge show space. The queue is going to be amazing.
