    We are coming to Epcot on Friday! We really want to ride the new Remy ride. We are willing to pay the extra. My question is on Friday morning at 7:00 am, should I try to get into the virtual queue first or try to pay the extra to get in the lightning lane

    Heigh-Ho Christine,

    Oui! Oui! Let's talk about Epcot's nouveau attraction Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and your options for potentially joining this adventure located in France's chic new addition. Guests wishing to experience this attraction have two possible ways to gain access either via a virtual queue or through purchasing Individual Lightning Lanes. Which is the best-guaranteed option? That depends on some Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust. 

    Because it is of no extra charge I highly suggest, through your My Disney Experience, joining a virtual queue. Virtual queues are assigned at 7:00 a.m. each morning for all Guests, you do not need to be in Epcot, and if there is availability again at 1:00 p.m. when you do need to be in Epcot. Prior to joining open your My Disney Experience app and on the home page scroll down and select the Virtual Queue or select the menu option in the lower right-hand corner and choose Virtual Queues. I highly recommend creating your party before 7:00 a.m. so you are ready to hit the REFRESH button at 7:00 a.m.  Have all other apps closed down and anyone else in your party can attempt the process also in their My Disney Experience app. 

    If you are not successful, your next option is purchasing the Individual Lightning Lanes. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, the Walt Disney World Swan/Swan Reserve/Dolphin Hotel and Shades of Green are able to purchase and make selections beginning at 7:00 a.m.  All other Guests can purchase and make selections beginning at the time of park opening. Again, this does not guarantee you will be able to ride because there are a limited amount of Lightning Lanes for all attractions but I am going to believe and Wish Upon a Star you and your Guests are going to enjoy scampering along with Remy through his mouse-sized and epically adorable adventure.

    May your upcoming Walt Disney World visit be filled with many magical and memorable moments and continue to ask us any further curiouser and curiouser inquires you may have.  

    Have a Practically Perfect Day, 

    Amy M.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
