From the studio that brought you “The Avengers” comes a new team. They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy, and they’re the crew at the epicenter of one of this summer’s biggest movie events. Starting July 4, “Guardians of the Galaxy” is coming to Disney Parks with an exclusive sneak peek, offering guests an extended look at the film before it opens in theaters.


At Disneyland park in California, you can catch this limited time intergalactic preview in 3D with special in-theater effects at the Magic Eye Theater in Tomorrowland, where Captain EO is typically shown. Captain EO is expected to return at a later date.

For those of you visiting Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, you’ll be able to experience the cosmic adventure of “Guardians of the Galaxy” at the ABC Sound Studio at Disney’s Hollywood Studios presented in spectacular RealD 3D, a new dimension of entertainment.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must find a way to rally the quartet of ragtag rivals hot on his trail to save the universe.

“Guardians of the Galaxy,” releases in U.S. theaters on August 1, 2014.


  • How many minutes is it? Is it like the one being shown out in the theaters through another site has given out tickets for? .That one is a 17 minute one.. Just wondering..

  • I am planning a trip in September. I haven’t been there since they opened Captain EO, so I hope they open it soon after this promo ends.

  • for WDW… do we have more details… like time and how we can get tickets/fast passes?? this will be our last day at WDW and was looking for something to do in the morning.

  • So Southern California Passholders wont be able to see this before it leaves?

  • I’m glad they finally are going to have something different in the Magic Eye Theater.

  • Whilst this is exciting news I wish Captain EO could have stayed open until June 27th as I’m a huge MJ fan and there is a large group of us from around the world who are commemorating the 5th anniversary of his passing that week

  • Very cool! I’m looking forward to seeing this at the Magic Eye Theater.

    As a side note, it’s been fun having Captain EO back, but I do hope that the Imagineers have something new planned for the Magic Eye Theater space in the future.

  • Any chance any of the characters will come to Disneyland to meet with guests? And, if I say PRETTY PLEASE, will that help? :)

  • How long is this going to stick around. I’ll be at WDW mid-August, and it’d be nice to finally be able to see one of these sneak peeks, especially for a Marvel movie!

    • Matthew – The “Guardians of the Galaxy” sneak peek is expected to continue through August 15, so hopefully you’ll have a chance to catch it. Of course, starting August 1, you’ll be able to see the whole movie in theaters across the country!

  • is there a return date for captain EO art disneyland?
