    Hello. I have an annual pass to Disneyworld. If I make my park reservation at Hollywood studios or animal kingdom for my first park of the day, can I still try for the 7am virtual queue for either guardians at Epcot or tron at MK? Thank you!

    Hi Esther!

    Welcome to planDisney!  It sounds like you're planning to enjoy some of the best thrills Walt Disney World Resort has to offer on your visit this summer.  

    As an Annual Passholder, theme park reservations are currently still required for entry to the parks.  In order to be eligible to enter the virtual queue for TRON Lightcylce / Run or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at 7:00 AM, you must have a theme park reservation for either Magic Kingdom Park or EPCOT depending on which attraction you would like to ride first.  The exception to this rule would be if you are visiting on a "Good-to-Go" day for Annual Passholders.  This means that you don't need a theme park reservation to enter the park and should be able to join either queue at 7:00 AM.  

    Esther, don't forget that you are eligible to hold one virtual queue at a time and, while you can join the 7:00 AM queue from anywhere, you must be in the park with the attraction you want to ride to be eligible to join the 1:00 PM queue.  This means, that with a little planning and a touch of pixie dust, you may be able to start your day with a theme park reservation for Magic Kingdom Park and join the virtual queue for TRON.  As long as your boarding group has been called in the morning, you could hop to EPCOT before 1:00 PM and then try to join the virtual queue for Guardians.

    Currently, both TRON and Guardians also offer Individual Lightning Lanes for purchase in addition to the virtual queue option.  If you miss the opportunity to join the virtual queue, you could also check Individual Lightning Lane availability.  In addition, if you are staying at a Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort, you may find yourself enjoying the exclusive Extended Evening Theme Park Hours benefit that is offered to guests of these properties.  During the extended evening hours, there is an additional opportunity to join the virtual queues at 6:00 PM, and with only a limited amount of guests eligible for this queue, you may find a great chance to join then as well!  

    Esther, I hope this information helps as you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!  If you have any other vacation planning questions, please feel free to visit us again at planDisney - we're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
