    My children are older enough to ride guardians of galaxy alone. However, they want a parent to stay with them in the queue until they get on ride. If I purchase lightning lane for them, do I also have to purchase one as well even if I am not riding?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jason! It's an honor to receive your first question and assist you today. July is approaching quickly, and before you know it, your family will be in The Most Magical Place on Earth, creating unforgettable memories. Can you believe it? I'm thrilled!

    I'm a massive fan of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and I can totally see spending a whole day rocking out on this intergalactic adventure through space and time with the best tunes ever. Now, to get on this amazing ride, you'll need to grab a spot in the Virtual Queue or snag an Individual Lightning Lane selection. I know it's not what you were expecting, but I've got some great tips to share.

    So, here's the deal: You don't have to rely only on the Individual Lightning Lane to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. You can actually use the Virtual Queue option, and it won't cost you a thing. You've got two shots at joining the Virtual Queue: once at 7:00 AM and the second at 1:00 PM. To get in on the 1:00 PM window, you've got to be at EPCOT. Don't forget to have the My Disney Experience app ready to go, and set an alarm for 3 minutes before the window opens so you can hop on the app right on time.

    Oh, and if you're staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, or certain other hotels, you've got an extra chance to join the Virtual Queue at 6:00 PM on selected dates during Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. Sounds pretty awesome, huh?

    If you want to ride the attraction, but your kids want to go by themselves, no worries! You can always request to go in a different car. This way, everyone gets to have fun.

    Hope this helps, Jason. Drop by anytime with more questions. We're always here to help out a friend like you!
