Greetings, Epcotians! Are you new to the virtual queue process for attractions at Walt Disney World? Or just totally confused by all the different ways to ride? Don’t worry, we’ve got you! If you’re planning to visit Epcot soon and hope to ride the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction, there are TWO different ways to do that right now! Since the attraction just opened on May 27th, the demand is extremely high for a spot in line! Here is how you can try to land a reservation to ride:
Option #1 is to join the Virtual Queue at 7:00 am OR 1:00 pm on your Epcot park day. Guests must have valid theme park admission AND an Epcot park reservation to join the virtual queue. At 7:00 am guests will be able to access the virtual queue from ANYWHERE, at 1:00 pm guests MUST BE INSIDE EPCOT to access the virtual queue. Both times guests will access the virtual queue on the home page of the My Disney Experience app. Follow these instructions to join the virtual queue:
Option #2 is to purchase Lightning Lane passes for your group at exactly 7:00 am. Each individual person will require their own pass, so be sure you select your entire party in the My Disney Experience app when you go to purchase! You’ll do this by toggling over to the Tip Board on your My Disney Experience app, verifying that you have Epcot selected as the park at the top (click change park to select Epcot) and then scroll down to the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction. See below for a visual aide, and bear in mind that at 7:00 am, the space circled will change to reflect Lightning Lane availability!
It is imperative that guests be ready at EXACTLY the time the virtual queue and Lightning Lane passes open; they will be sold out or full in a matter of seconds. Remember, if you miss out at 7:00 am, set yourself an alarm for 12:55 pm so you can be ready to go when that 1:00 pm virtual queue opens to guests inside the park! We know how confusing it can be to navigate some of the recent changes to how guests experience the Disney parks! We’re always here to help you get the most out of your vacation, and answer any questions you may have!
