    What is the best current recommendation for Genie+ LL selection at Epcot? We plan to use the virtual queue for Guardians, so what should our first LL choice be based on wait? Also, if entering from the main entrance, where should we go first at rope drop?

    Hi Amy! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! Your magical arrival at EPCOT is only two days away. Using Disney Genie+ Service will help maximize your park day while minimizing your wait times in traditional queue lines. Here are six short videos to help explain all the important elements of Disney Genie Service.

    Let's cover the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. With a Disney Park Reservation to EPCOT, at 7:00 AM be ready to grab a boarding group through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. If you missed your chance, you can try again at 1:00 PM. You must have visited EPCOT to be eligible at this time. If you want to save the galaxy twice, you can also purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. If you are a guest of the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels, Shades of Green®, or Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, you can try for a spot beginning at 7:00 AM through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. All other guests must wait until the park officially opens.

    As far as your best choices for Lightning Lane selections, this will really depend on your travel party and preferences. However, I can tell you, the attractions that typically have the longest wait lines include Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, Frozen Ever After, and Test Track. Personally, if I was rope-dropping even from the main entrance, I would head straight to the France Pavilion to Remy's Ratatouille Adventure for a shorter standby line. Afterward, grab a quick breakfast from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie to enjoy while heading towards Frozen Ever After. Experiencing these two attractions with shorter standby lines will give you the chance to double down on these popular attractions when you utilize your Lightning Lane choices.

    Keep in mind, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection beginning at 7:00 AM. You will be allowed to make another Lightning Lane selection once you tap into your attraction or two hours after the park opens, whichever comes first. Keep your eye on the Tip Board for when you are eligible to make your next selection. And more great news. Now, you can modify your Lightning Lane choices. Tap on your Lightning Lane selection, review the short menu, select the change you desire, confirm your party, hit "submit," and "done."

    Keeping it Magical,
