While most of the focus at Walt Disney World has been on Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, there's a growing list of rumored possible fixes for major issues that have been plaguing Epcot. The brand new Frozen Ever After ride recently opened in Norway, and the new international film, along with the new third theater, has opened at Soarin’. At this point, the park has no official projects in the works but many rumors point to major updates coming to Future World in the coming years.
A massive update to Future World has long been conjectured, with plans dating back to the late 1990s, but the chance of a major overhaul now looks stronger than ever. WDW News Today has reported that Guardians of the Galaxy will be introduced to Future World, with the strongest candidate for replacement being the very dated Universe of Energy ride. The new ride would likely use the same ride system but would probably run much shorter than the current 45 minutes.
With Shanghai Disneyland now officially open, it’s only a matter of time before some of the rides used there are replicated in other parks. The two most likely candidates for this are the Tron motorbike coaster and the "jetpack" spinners, both found in Shanghai’s Tomorrowland. The Tron motorbike coaster is a Vekoma motorbike coaster with a custom light package and layout. The rumored location for this ride is the former Wonders of Life pavilion.
