The Universe of Energy has been open since October of 1982. During it’s 35 years in operation it educated people about the energy around our world. We always thought of this lengthy attraction as a way to get out the the rain or cool of for a nap on a hot day.
It has recently been announced at D23, that the Universe of Energy attraction will be closing on August 13th, 2017 and I can’t help but look forward to what has been announced to replace it.
The new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction will be inside the current Universe of Energy building. Disney has not released an opening date for the attraction but Disney Parks Blog says “Epcot’s brand new E-ticket attraction will be based on the rockin’ and action-packed world of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and is the next step in how guests can encounter these characters at the Walt Disney World Resort. Epcot just may be the perfect place for a “Guardians”-inspired attraction”
Mission: SPACE has been under refurbishment recently and now we know why…
in just a few weeks, guests will be able to enjoy new adventures at Mission: SPACE – an updated Orange Mission (more intense training) and a brand-new Green Mission (Less intense experience).
Disney Parks Blog states “The updated Orange Mission will make an even more visually stunning trip to Mars, while the all-new Green adventure will allow guests to blast off for an orbital adventure around planet Earth.”
Which mission will you take the next time you visit this attraction?
One other announcement has been made for Epcot at D23 and that is the opening of a Ratatouille inspired attraction in the France Pavilion. Guests will be able to shrink to Remy’s size and scurry to safety in a dazzling chase across a kitchen with the sights, sounds and smells of Gusteau’s legendary Parisian restaurant. According to Disney Parks blog this attraction will open sometime in 2021.
I look forward to bringing you updated information about these attractions as they open in the parks. Stay tuned…
