I don’t believe there is anything more advanced than any of the other multi projector setups that we see elsewhere. I would say it’s nowhere near the complexity of any of the huge outdoor projection mapping icon projects.
I haven't seen them in person, are their projectors onto screens or are the screens themselves displaying the image like a JumboTron?

Yes they are conventional projection screens with multiple projectors per screen (for the larger ones).

You can see one of the large screens quite easily here

Is there anything preventing screen-based rides like this from using screens with the incredible clarity of the one at Bourne? It seems like integrating that technology into a dark ride really would be groundbreaking.
Just off the top of my head you’d have issues with weight and maintenance access. Depending on how you’re moving viewing angles could also be an issue.

also are those screens capable of showing that clarity for 16/18 hours straight? Bourne has cooldown periods inbetween shows.

Hi everyone,

Sorry if redundant question, I've have not been on the Cosmic Threads to avoid spoilers.

I have my Preview for tomorrow, got added Epcot in MDE. But I still didn't get an email like I Did for Ratatouille with my confirmation or anything that was sent a few days beforehand . Is my original confirmation I copied enough, or do they have my records already and just need to scan my Annual pass when I enter the attraction area. Thanks!

You will be fine. If you have the EPCOT entry in MDX that means you are in the system. They will just scan MagicBand or phone, and you will be good to go. Enjoy! and let us know what you think.

Be aware as well that they are likely to let you in up to 25 mins prior to your window. Not guaranteed, but worth being in the area early.

You will be happy to know that Bourne had aspects that are a direct prototype for at least one thing at EPIC Universe.

So are we expecting any chance of a public soft opening tomorrow? Haven't kept up with what preview windows are what.
i personally would think not, but that’s just intuition and my opinion. In the current days of staffing constraints and social media, if it soft opened, Epcot would get a mass influx on guests and would defeat the purpose

No mass influx before 2p because of park reservations. And after 2p only from those who have hoppers.

Everything you need to know about opening day merchandise availability for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind'​

Not a merchandise person myself, looks some ok retro looking stuff for those so inclined though.
