Does anyone else ever wish you could skip work, school, or daily chores and go right to your next Disney World vacation? We may not have a magic remote that can fast-forward us to Florida, but we do have some exciting news that might make time FLY by in anticipation! Recently, Disney announced that the long-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction is officially opening in EPCOT on May 27th, but the ride will see a few select passengers ahead of the big opening day.
Disney World guests who are part of a few select groups may be able to preview EPCOT’s first rollercoaster early. If you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder, we’ve got a BIG update for you about these exclusive previews!
Earlier in April, Disney World president Jeff Vahle announced that Disney Cast Members would soon be able to preview Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. Now, it’s Annual Passholders’ turn!
Right now, Annual Passholders can book a reservation to preview Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Previews are available on May 8th through the 10th, May 15th and 16th, and May 18th through the 21st. Reservations are subject to availability. To get your reservations, head to Disney’s online queue and wait for your turn. There will be an approximate wait time listed on the page.
When your turn arrives, you will sign in to your Disney account, which will verify that you are an Annual Passholder. You can add other Annual Passholders from your Family & Friends list there.
Next, you’ll select the date and time for your reservation. Complete the reservation, and don’t forget to print out the confirmation page to bring with you when you head to the coaster for your preview! Note that you will NOT need an EPCOT park pass reservation on the day of your scheduled preview.
According to the Disney World website, Annual Passholders should bring their pass, a photo ID, and a printed copy of the confirmation page showing their reservations to preview the coaster.
It’s been a while since we first heard about this new attraction, so if you need a little refresher, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is Disney’s first reverse launch, 360-degree spinning “storycoaster“. The attraction is expected to take guests on an adventure through time and space in a HUGE building (we previewed the building — it is REALLY big).
Disney hasn’t revealed any information about how the new attraction will work with Disney Genie+, but we’ll be sure to fill you in when Disney makes an announcement! Based on the popularity of EPCOT’s other new attraction, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, we have a feeling this new ride is going to be VERY popular.
We’re always on the lookout for the latest Disney news, so be sure to stay tuned for all the latest updates!
