Two new major attractions, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille, have been announced for Epcot. These were rumored to be coming and were officially announced during Disney’s Parks and Resorts panel at D23. Guardians of the Galaxy will be in Future World, while Ratatouille will be in the France pavilion.
Disney is hoping to build on the popularity of the Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Disney’s California Adventure. The new attraction will be replacing Elen’s Universe of Energy which will be closing August 13th. This is a welcome change as I know Universe of Energy is not a popular attraction. Disney did not go into much detail on what we can expect from the new attraction.
Ratatouille looks like it will be very similar to the version in Paris. Guests will shrink down to the size of a rat and have a 4D adventure through the ride. This looks like a really cool attraction! Both attractions will be open for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World in 2021.
