Disney announces massive renovation project for Epcot, Tron roller coaster for Magic Kingdom

Posted Sunday, July 16, 2017 2:00 PM | Contributed by slithernoggin

A major new ride — themed to “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the hit Marvel movie series — is planned for Epcot’s front section, where a simulator attraction, Mission: Space, will be updated and expanded. A ride based on the Pixar film “Ratatouille” will be added to the park’s World Showcase area. Epcot will also serve as stop for a new gondola system called Disney Skyliner connecting various hotels and parks. Bob Chapek also announced more than $1 billion worth of projects unrelated to Epcot. A version of the “Tron”-inspired roller coaster that has been a runaway hit at Shanghai Disneyland is coming to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World.

And say goodbye to The Great Movie Ride. That Mickey-centric ride sounds awesome. Yay!

Take that! And that, and that, and THAT, Universal!

Bad wording on the Times' part. I assume that the Guardians ride is in addition to a Mission Space revamp rather than Space being rethemed as Guardians.

Correct. Guardians of the Galaxy will replace Universe of Energy.
