    Can I buy and individual lighting lane for Guardians and use the virtual queue to ride it twice in one day?

    Hi, Katherine! Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Looks like you'll be "home" in just a few days, and experiencing Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is high on your must-do list. You're my kind of people, Katherine. That's one of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. Let's see if we can find a way for you to dance to the rhythm of the beat more than once!

    The short answer is that you can ride twice in one day, but you have to have your plans in place because this is a very popular attraction. Here's my advice for how to make it happen. First, make sure you have a Theme Park Reservation for EPCOT, and at 7:00 AM sharp, hop on your My Disney Experience Mobile App and secure a spot in the virtual queue. You'll click the Virtual Queues tile from the menu screen and follow the prompts. Spots can fill up in seconds, so you'll have to use Rocket Raccoon skill and speed to grab one!

    Immediately after that, tap the Tip Board tile in the app and scroll down to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Cosmic Rewind. Be sure your current credit card information is handy and stored on the app. These Individual Lightning Lane spots fill up, as well, but typically last a little longer than the virtual queue spots. 

    Katherine, if you happen to be staying at any of the Deluxe Resort Hotels, you'd have a third opportunity to experience the spinning, dipping, sparkling experience known as Cosmic Rewind because guests of Deluxe Resort Hotels can join a virtual queue at 6:00 PM when they are able to take advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours.

    My final tip is if you have any members of your party who are savvy with the mobile app, you can recruit them to help you in the morning rush. One of you can secure the 7:00 AM virtual queue while the other books the Individual Lightning Lane. And remember, if you don't get in the 7:00 AM queue, there is another one at 1:00 PM. You do not have to be inside EPCOT at 1:00 PM to try to join this queue, but all members of your party must have scanned into the park prior to that time.

    I hope you have the luck, success, and even the charm of Star-Lord so you can save the galaxy on your trip next week! I know you can do it because to paraphrase Rocket Raccoon, "There ain't no thing like you, except you."

    Magic awaits,
