Description And Comments

A roller coaster with cars capable of rotating 360 degrees, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a very new style of ride for Disney World. Guests begin in the “Galaxarium,” a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and the planet Xandar. Then the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive and everything goes haywire. Cosmic Rewind includes the first reverse launch on a Disney coaster.

Touring Tips

Cosmic Rewind will be the highest priority attraction for most guests once it opens. Your best bet to ride without long waits in line is to (1) stay at a Disney resort to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry; (2) arrive at EPCOT’s main entrance at least an hour before official opening; and (3) head for Cosmic Rewind as soon as you’re admitted into the park. Alternatively, you will be able to pay to use the Lightning Lane queue.

It’s possible that Disney will use “boarding groups” (a virtual queuing system) to prevent long standby lines at Cosmic Rewind. If that happens, boarding groups would likely be allocated each morning at 7 a.m. via Disney’s My Disney Experience app.
