EPCOT’s Newest Attraction is Getting a Special Holiday Addition

Have you had a chance to ride EPCOT’s newest roller coaster attraction yet? If not, from personal experience, we must say Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is one of the most impressive attractions available at Walt Disney World. And soon enough… it’s going to be getting a dose of the holidays!

The holidays at Walt Disney World Resort are going to be incredible, to say the least! Not only is Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party returning for 2022, but fan-favorite such as EPCOT’s Candlelight Processional will also be available this holiday season.

Disney is also putting a new spin on the popular Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind soundtrack! Disney has revealed, “This season, the Guardians will trade in their classic hits playlist for a mash-up of seasonal jams at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. Guests will blast off to the tune of an awesome holiday single, bringing joy to Xandar and Terra, too.”

Currently, the new roller coaster features an “Awesome Mix” playlist with six songs including “Conga” by Gloria Estefan, “Disco Inferno” by The Trammps, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears, “I Ran” by A Flock of Seagulls, “One Way or Another” by Blondie, and “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire.

You never know which song you’ll get when you ride, making the experience unique each time. And now that Disney will throw a seasonal mas-up into the mix – we’re especially excited to see how the ride feels with some festival music piped in!

Ready to ride? Keep in mind, before you head to EPCOT to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind there is NO standby line. This means Guests are currently NOT allowed to wait in line for the attraction. Disney currently has a virtual queue for Guardians that opens at 7:00 am daily. The other way to ride is to purchase a Lightning Lane pass for this attraction.

Time to start making those Walt Disney World 2022 holiday plans, Disney fans!

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
