2 long-time Disney World rides to close doors for good
ORLANDO, Fla. – Sunday marked the end of an era for two popular Disney World rides. Fans will say their final farewell to Epcot’s Universe of Energy and Hollywood Studios’ The Great Movie Ride, two of the theme-parks’ longest-running rides. During Disney’s D-23 Expo last month, company officials plans to open a “Guardians of the Galaxy” ride in place of The Universe of Energy. The Great Movie Ride will also close its doors for the final time Sunday evening. The ride, which company officials described as “groundbreaking” will be Disney's first ride based on Mickey Mouse.
