Unveiling of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Music

We visited as a guest of Disney

The Walkman opened, the awesome mixtape was inserted, and the Disney Imagineering team hit play to listen to nearly 100 high-energy songs before finally selecting the final six songs that will be featured in the new Disney California Adventure attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Just like in the movie, music plays a major role in the storytelling of the attraction that will immerse visitors into a futuristic world.

This afternoon, I put on an old pair of work boots and drove to Anaheim to get an exclusive first look at the all-new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! When I arrived at Disney California Adventure Park, I was guided to the wall that surrounds the new upcoming attraction, handed a hard hat, and welcomed to come behind-the-scenes.

Getting to be taken on a guided tour of the new attraction with the Imagineers who are bringing the ride to life was a day that I will never forget. The passion that the Imagineers have for making the attraction an unforgettable experience for visitors shined bright with every word that they spoke.

One of the biggest passions that the Imagineers had when creating Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! was to find the perfect songs to be featured on the ride. An exciting part of my tour was having the Imagineers unveil the final songs they selected. They surprised everyone on the tour with the song titles by playing a fun game of “guess that song.”
