Why does everyone assume GoTG has to be related to energy? Kinda sound like that entire side of future world is becoming space themed. GotG, update to MS, new Space resturant.. Test Track is the only thing standing in the way of an entire all space themed area of the park.

Unfortunately, my first trip was in '05, so I have little connection to the Epcot of the 80's and early 90's. As a result, I'm not quite as upset by this as others. While I'm a stickler for theme and wish this was placed elsewhere, I'm optimistic that this could be a great attraction, but only if they do it right. And only time will tell on that front. :)

My first time visiting Epcot was in 03 so I never saw it in its original state. So i cant really relate to those of you who are mourning the loss. What I will say is that we really dont know much about this ride. Maybe they surprise us and the theme really fits. Or maybe not. I think its too early to tell.

I wanted to barf when Chapek brought up how "successful" Mission Cashgrab was during the presentation. He only mentioned it 15 times.
From everyone I've talked to, MB has been nothing but successful (I've talked to both fans and casual parkgoers). Personally, I enjoyed the ride. I just wish it didn't have to be placed in an area that it doesn't quite fit in (yet).

Because it's going inside the Energy pavilion? They're probably going in the space direction, but Energy was an original EPCOT Center attraction. One hopes they are not kicking that theme to the curb.

I think the stranger thing here more than anything is the overlap in ride idea and concept.. Forget the IP for a moment. We have a Launched Coaster (RnR) through space (Space Mountain) where you know they'll be music pumping (RnR again). So basically we have RnR+Space Mountains love child.

yea, no I understand the location, but you can put a dentist office in an old Applebees. Yep, that just happened near me.. I just don't understand how they didn't put a Chili's in that old Applebees.

Well considering we don't have any details about the story of the ride we can't speak if it does or doesn't
I'm speaking hypothetically. I'm trying to come up with a way for this to tie into the theme, but struggling. It's a roller coaster. The focus will be on the thrill and Guardians, I can pretty much guarantee. Same way Frozen Ever After focuses on Elsa and Anna and not Norway.
