News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

Respectfully, you could always go and find one of many pixie dust driven forums where everything is wonderful and every change is for the better.

That isn't the point. Discussion is fine and all, when it adds to reality, but it becomes hard to enjoy this forum when all you read is complaint after complaint from the same group of posters. You could literally look at these posters history and see the negative tone, post after post. It's sad that we collectively can't find something to be happy about, even after all that was announced yesterday. I personally don't like that GMR is changing and I don't see why GOTG is going to EPCOT, but I don't talk about it everyday as if it's my entire devoted life's mission. I do however want to discuss what is coming, how it effects the change, what X will look like, what Y ride system will be, what Z restaurant style of food will be and it's hard to do that when you read is.. "this isn't my epcot" & "Disney is ruining "MY" epcot" & "this isn't the sticking to the original idea of epcot" yada yada yada... Good lord, it's on every thread. We get it, some of you don't like it. Can we talk about the attraction coming to EPCOT now? Just trying to stay on topic.

Shouldn't we be *happy* that they aren't leaving Ellen's to rot? or closing it indefinitely without a plan? or turning it into a festival center?

Yes sure, an original energy attraction with no IP would be amazing, but I think having GoTG is better than leaving it alone, never updating or doing anything with the building/attraction inside.

I want you to read your first paragraph again. Then I want you to remember that we're talking about Disney, the largest media conglomerate in the world. I absolutely refuse to accept that I should just be happy that one of the wealthiest corporations in the history of the world didn't leave an attraction to rot. How absolutely insane is it that we've even gotten to a point with this company where a person would even have to type that first paragraph.

The problem is people dont like change, even if it's for the better or for the worst. Universe of Energy was a part time attraction anyway, so I dont see the issue with creating a new attraction that will actually eat up some of the crowd year round.

I'm not sure you're reading your audience. EPCOT Center was designed to change. In fact, the promise was that it will always be changing.

EPCOT fans are the most open to change. We are not happy when it stagnates nor when it changes for the worse. That's because either way, through stagnation or the insertion of (other entities') IP for IP's sake, the park ceases to inspire. If we're not consistent, I don't know who is!

Consider the alternative though, that's all I'm saying. Yes it's insane to even think they could have (and have in the past) shut it down and ignored it for a few years/decades/forever. I don't expect that from Disney but it's happened before, hasn't it?

It's not that they are adding rides. It's what they are doing with said rides. Most people upset about this change are happy the parks are getting money, they just don't like how that money is being spent.

I love Guardians. Does it fit in Epcot? No.

People are upset because Future World isn't about science fiction. It's about science.

GotG would have been great as a 5D show in the Magic Eye Theater as part of an Imagination overhaul.

Yes, and the more people sit here and take their asinine decisions, the more stuff like that will happen. Seems Wonders of Life is still just sitting there rotting, can't imagine why they couldnt have some something with that space.

I am struggling to see how the entire building can just be que and load and unload. The current building is huge!
The current ride has no queue, and we know that anything new will require a huge line capacity. Just look at Flight of Pasage. They had to build 4 hours of interior queue. It would be very easy to see the majority of the existing space used for that.

That makes a lot of sense. I'm wondering if this build will be similar to RnRC where the ride show building is connected from the launch tunnel to the queue, preshow and load/unload area.
