    If I got a boarding group for cosmic rewind, am I allowed to get a lightning for a different ride at the same time as well?

    Hello Matthew,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Like you, I can't wait to check out the newest attraction in EPCOT, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

    It sounds like you've done your homework and know that in order to experience Cosmic Rewind you have two options, 1) obtain a virtual boarding pass, available at either 7:00 AM or 1:00 PM each day (these go within seconds), or 2) purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for a return time (these also sell out rather quickly). Fast reflexes and some virtual pixie dust are needed either way to be able to experience this wildly popular attraction.

    The good news is that if you have Genie+ added to your tickets, you'll still be able to make a Lightning Lane selection for a different attraction, even if you end up purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for Cosmic Rewind. There is no connection between Individual Lightning Lane Purchases or Virtual Queues and Genie+ Lightning Lane selections.

    So, if you are visiting EPCOT the first thing you should do at 7:00 AM is try to get in the virtual queue for Cosmic Rewind. If that doesn't work and you don't want to press your luck by waiting until 1:00 PM for a second chance, purchase the Individual Lightning Lane for the attraction. Then make your first Genie+ selection. Or you could have someone else go ahead and make the Genie+ selection for your party while you are trying to get into the virtual queue. 

    Hope this helps. Good luck, and have a magical vacation!
