As many of you already know, Disney closed down the Universe of Energy Pavilion back on August 13th to make way for a new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.The changes have been largely embraced by Disney fans as the attraction Ellen’s Energy Adventure housed within the pavilion had been seen by many as dated an in need of an upgrade.
Those wondering how things are shaping up since the pavilion’s closure will see from the pictures below that the area has been walled off, but the building (at least for the moment seems relatively untouched):
Here’s a view approaching the pavilion from just under the monorail tracks
A side view shows that the partition wraps around the entire pavilion.
Here’s a more comprehensive view of the area.
Though there’s no opening date yet for the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction, it was announced recently that the ride would be an indoor coaster with permits being filed to support this. As part of the project, it is believed that the front facade of Universe of Energy will remain largely intact and will simply be incorporated into the design.
Keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest news regarding this and other new attractions slated to opend at the parks in the years ahead.
