It was announced this weekend at D23 Expo the Universe of Energy attraction at Epcot will be closing in August 2017.
The Universe of Energy is one of the park’s original rides, opening on Epcot’s opening date of October 1, 1982. It featured numerous films that presented information on the subject of energy, as well as a ride through a primeval diorama complete with audio-animatronic dinosaurs.
Two new attractions were announced for Epcot at this weekend’s D23 Expo, and one of them will be Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired.
This attraction will not be the same as the recently opened Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, which debuted at Disney California Adventure park earlier this year..
