    Day pass to Epcot, trying to join virtual queue but is saying “this virtual queue is currently closed to Guests not already in a group”

    Hey there Hannah!

    Can I just say, I want to be where the people are? I’m so happy that you’re visiting EPCOT today but I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t a bit jealous! I have a feeling that today is going to be a great day for you. Be sure to spend some time checking out the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival as it’s in its final weeks! Take a stroll through the butterfly garden, check out the awe-inspiring topiaries, and spend some time tasting a variety of dishes at the Outdoor Kitchens. 

    The Virtual Queues are like golden tickets allowing you to reserve your spot in line and return at a later time in the day. They're a digital reservation system designed to optimize your theme park experience. Now, if you've encountered the message saying, "This Virtual Queue is currently closed to Guests not already in a group," don't fret! It simply means that the queue is temporarily full.

    Here's the scoop: Virtual Queues for certain attractions, like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, have two opening times: 7:00 am and 1:00 pm. So, if you missed out on snagging a spot in the morning rush, you still have another shot at 1:00 pm. The key? Be ready to pounce on that opportunity as soon as it opens.

    To join the Virtual Queue, make sure your technology game is strong. Load up the My Disney Experience app a couple of minutes ahead of time. Scroll down until you see “Request Access with Virtual Queue” and then you’ll be able to select “Join Virtual Queue.” When the time comes, hit that button with lightning-fast reflexes, verify your travel party, and hopefully, you’ll be able to join the Virtual Queue. 

    Now, if luck isn't on your side or you prefer a guaranteed entry, there's always the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. It's a surefire way to secure your place without the uncertainty of the Virtual Queue.

    So, keep those spirits high, your devices charged, and get ready for a magical day at EPCOT. May your journey be filled with thrills, laughter, and unforgettable memories!
