VIDEO GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY at Epcot Performing Awesome Mix Live

The Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot are now performing their “Awesome Mix” live at the America Gardens theatre multiple times a day.  It may be a while before their roller coaster opens, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find the Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot. On Saturday, June 9 “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” opened as part of Walt Disney World’s “Incredible Summer” lineup. Check out the VIDEO below of the first appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot.

The story goes that Star Lord convinced the planet Xandar, birthplace of the Nova Corps, to send a group of ambassador musicians to Earth (Terra) as a goodwill gesture.  Star-Lord, Gamora and Baby Groot take over the show, and teach the Xandarians what good music is all about as they perform classic rock hits from their Awesome Mix, live.

Guests can catch “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” five times a day at Epcot, included with theme park admission.  Meanwhile, in Future World, work continues on the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster that’s replacing Ellen’s Energy Adventure at Epcot. The Guardians of the Galaxy attraction will be one of the world’s longest indoor coasters when completed, and construction is underway adjacent to the existing Universe of Energy building.

Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek said there’s plans to realize the original vision of Epcot while making it more timeless and relevant than ever before, including the brand-new E-ticket attraction based on the rockin’ and action-packed world of Guardians of the Galaxy.
