Progress Continues on Epcot ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Attraction in Walt Disney World

It’s been a little over two weeks since the Universe of Energy¬†officially closed, and Disney is already moving forward with its conversion into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.

According to WDWNT, Disney has begun clearing the parcel of land behind the existing Universe of Energy pavilion. If you’ll recall, permits were filed a few months ago for such a project. Photos can be seen at this link.

The area behind the Universe of Energy where Guardians’ expanded show building will be.

WDWNT speculates that a building behind the pavilion will house most of the ride system, which they’re claiming may be a roller coaster. However, we’ve heard conflicting stories about what kind of attraction the Guardians of the Galaxy ride will actually be. A thrill ride, yes. But not necessarily a coaster.

Whatever is coming to the Universe of Energy, Disney is moving very quickly to fill the space. Let’s hope that the Guardians ride blows us all away.
