    Can I book virtual queue in Epcot at 1 and then leave to go to Hollywood studios? That way I can return later to do Guardians?

    Hiya, Harry Noah!

    Thanks for visiting us at planDisney from all the way across The Pond! Don't you just love how convenient it is to hop between EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios? While most Guests are familiar with the Disney Skyliner, did you know that there are also FriendShip Boats and a walking path that connects the two? However you choose to hop, whether it's cruising, gliding, or walking, I'm delighted to share that Guests who hold a boarding group in a virtual queue are not required to remain in that particular theme park until their boarding group is called.

    It is important to remember that while any Guest with a date-based theme park ticket (or those with an EPCOT theme park reservation if applicable) is eligible to join the 7 AM virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, only Guests physically inside EPCOT are eligible to join the queue at 1 PM. Once you have successfully joined the virtual queue, you will be assigned a boarding group and given an estimated callback time. Please keep in mind that this callback time is truly an estimate and that you will have an hour to return to the attraction from the time your boarding group is called no matter your location at the time.  

    If you don't mind the extra cost, purchasing an individual Lightning Lane for Cosmic Rewind would enable you to select the time you would like to experience the attraction and prevent you from potentially having to rush back and forth between theme parks. I've been known to purchase an individual Lightning Lane and join the virtual queue on the same day. By doing this, I'm guaranteed to enjoy the attraction at a time that works best for my schedule but can also potentially ride again if my group is called at a convenient time. This method once earned me back-to-back Septembers, and I wasn't sure if my husband's hearing would ever recover from the shriek of joy that erupted when the first note of the iconic song dropped for the second time in a single day.

    I hope this was helpful, and that your Cosmic Rewind soundtrack is the song you've been dreaming of! If any additional questions arise as you plan, feel free to stop back by. I'm always happy to help!

    Thinking Happy Thoughts,
