UPDATE June 26 - Much like the Jungle Cruise and Living with the Land, it looks like the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction will be getting a little bit of extra holiday magic this fall with Disney announcing that the ride will get a special holiday soundtrack starting in November. No specifics about what songs guests can look forward to hearing during the holiday season have been announced just yet but we will keep you up to date here on Theme Park Tourist.
UPDATE May 24 - We are now just days away from the Friday May 27, official opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. With so many previews having been held this month we have seen a number of POV posted online and thought we would share a couple of the best ones with you. We found out back in April there are six different song choices for the roller coaster meaning that each time you ride, you may get the chance to experience it in a different way. Check out the two POV below, the first is a complete walk through of the entire attraction starting from outside and the track is "Everybody Wants to Rule the World". Please Note - Spoiler Alert!
This second POV shows just the roller coaster itself and therefore is a lot shorter (just under 4 mins). The track is "One Way or Another" which certainly gives the coaster ride a different feel. Please Note - Spoiler Alert!
UPDATE (May 8) - with previews for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind well underway before the official opening on May 27, there are numerous reviews and videos being posted online. If you fancy seeing a ridercam video then check this one out which is embedded below. Please Note - Spoiler Alert!
UPDATE (May 4) - Disney has released a video on TikTok revealing the merchandise which will be available for Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. It looks like there will be a range of clothing including T-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets as well as bags, water bottles and toys. Check out the video below:

UPDATE (April 29) - Disney has released a teaser video this week of what guests can expect from the new Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction when it officially opens on May 27.
Previews for Disney Cast Members, Annual Passholders, and D23 Gold Members have already begun and positive reviews are appearing online from those who have been lucky enough to have caught a preview. The newly released trailer is embedded below where you can see the first proper look at the on board experience guests will get when riding the new Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind roller coaster at EPCOT.
UPDATE April 4 - Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will officially open at EPCOT on May 27, 2022. Alongside the long awaited announcement, Disney has released a trailer video showing a teaser of what guests can expect. The video is embedded below.
UPDATE April 2 - We are all eagerly awaiting the confirmation of an opening date for Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT which has been rumored to be opening Memorial Day Weekend (see below). Disney has now released a video on Instagram hinting that an official opening date will be announced on Monday. We will keep you up to date with the latest details on our news and Facebook page.
February 23 - Just to be clear, this is not an official opening date announced by Disney.
There has been a rumor online through a tweet that was then deleted that the highly anticipated Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be opening at EPCOT on the Memorial Day Weekend (May 30, 2022). Currently on the official Walt Disney World site the attraction is still listed as "Coming Summer 2022".
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will feature a backwards launch which is a first for Disney and when it opens it will be one of the longest indoor coasters in the world. The attraction will feature elevated roller coaster trains that conceal track underneath, and can also move independently, spinning around 360 degrees to face screens or set pieces.
We will keep you posted as soon as an official opening date is announced for Guardians Of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. What we do know for certain is that we will finally get to ride this long awaited attraction at some point this Summer.
