You are correct there, that last one about your head wasn't a joke...



You're right, just going to bury the hatchet now.
You’re still going on about this? Ok...

No worries, friend. I’ll store that toilet paper in my head, but my concern is that I won’t have enough space in between my ears to store enough for all the crap you spew. 😘

Anyways, small children who just make noise aside, I’m surprised at just how much Disney is showing off the attraction at this point. If things really are getting pushed back dude to COVID, and maybe some red tape, I would think they would refrain from showing too much just yet.

One new piece of art for the exterior:

I wonder how tall that spaceship will actually be. I guess with the impressive size of Energy sloping up behind it that will help with creating an illusion of size that concept art can’t exactly translate very well, but I do hope it’s not some giant monstrosity. Although, if it is, that would match in theme with the invisible blue box we don’t see.

I meant like a seperate launch and lift hill. So im assuming the ride starts with the backwards launch and then goes up that lift hill again later on in the ride. Kind of like Space Mt. in Disneyland Paris.

It's not exactly the same but Slinkly has the boosted ascent at the beginning and then the more traditional launch mid course.

Guardians is sharing many similarities with The Mummy over at Universal. Really looking forward to how it feels based on that brief test footage, even at lower speeds the direction of the cars combined with the track banking should add a unique thrill for this coaster.
Doesn’t look exceedingly like solar panels to me... anyone else skeptical?

Yeah I was holding out hope that they would put new solar panels up there but they may have changed their minds. Probably getting more efficient use out of their solar farms elsewhere on property that they decided these were not necessary. Time will tell.

Hadn't seen this before, thanks for posting it.
So the plan at one point was to park a full scale Milano on top of a more sculpted building. In that case, they didn't scale down the ship so much as they changed to a different ship still seemingly at full scale:

This is a Starblaster:

I'm a fan of going with this ship as its shape really works as an eye catching icon. The pavilion looks closer to something from Xandar, but I'm also fine with they look we're getting. I am curious about those objects to the left in your pic- simple decorations or something more?

I like the ship from the latest concept art better (more eye catching as you said) but the roof from the older concept art more.

From the pre-show art we see that the Guardians arrive in the MIlano during our tour which wouldn't make much sense if they were parked on the roof when we arrived. No doubt the story went through many iterations which we can hopefully coax slowly out of Martin.

Minor quibble, but assuming this ride takes place after GotG Vol 2, then the ship would be the Benatar not the Milano.

Did anyone at Disney even consider the fact that they now have two space themed rides almost right next to each other? Guardians basically makes Mission: Space obsolete. Why get on a simulation of a current/near future space mission when you can just go get on a spaceship and fly around in space next door?

I agree. Demolish M:S and put up a pavilion about future living and what’s on the.....horizon.

You mean like some sort of space-y 'tomorrow land'?
