Whenever Disney opens up a new attraction, particularly an E-ticket, there will invariably be an avalanche of related merchandise available. Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind, which opened this past Memorial Day Weekend at Walt Disney World’s Epcot, is no exception.
The items range from standard to cool to quirky (Star Lord helmet, anyone?). Today we’re going to take a look at some of the standouts, and I’ll give a tip on how to buy them without waiting in a long line.
Without further ado, here are a few of the items that grabbed my attention.
Let’s start with clothing. Anyone of my generation remembers having a Members Only jacket in the 1980s, and I believe that style is back, at least in the form of the bomber jacket worn by Peter Quill/Star Lord in the Marvel movies.

You can have your own version of the jacket, made from faux leather, as per Disney. I know I’m an old ’80s geek, but this one is actually kind of cool. Adults can have one for $99. There’s also a children’s version for $79.
As usual, there are also several variations of T-shirts available. The one that stood out to me is kind of simple.

It features symbols of the ships from the ride with the heading, “Spaceships,” and says Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s yours for the somewhat steep price of $36.99.
For our limited edition merch collectors, there are a few things for you, too.
Pin collecting and trading isn’t at the fever pitch it was a few years ago, but some, like me, still like to grab a few that remind them of something special. For annual passholders, you can again get your ’80s geek on by buying this limited edition pin.
There’s a limited pin to honor the ride opening date.
It looks like the cassette mix tape you know you all made in 1984, and on the front, it says “Launched 5-27-22” in honor of the ride opening date. It doesn’t have an edition number that will be sold, but grab it soon, because Disney could pull it at any time.
Also in the limited time only category is the Guardians Magic Band.

The band is black with a star field that reminds you of the ride, the Guardians logo and images of the spaceships. It’s, again, available for a limited time and costs $39.99, in line with other “specialty” bands.
Getting back to basics for a moment, there are of course the normal assortment of T-shirts, mugs, and key chains. Nothing wrong with that and in this particular case, will give Disney props for making them interesting. For example, there’s a mug with funky design.
