    We are deluxe resort guest and I have a park hopper with my first park reservation is Hollywood Studios. Can I buy a lightning lane for Cosmic Rewind at 7 or do I need to start my day at Epcot?

    Hi, Melissa, and welcome to planDisney!

    It would be my pleasure to chat with you about my favorite Walt Disney World attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.  I was so excited when this new attraction opened that "I Ran" straight to EPCOT to experience it.  I'm glad to see that you will be visiting in just a few short months.  I'm sure you're excited to save the galaxy, so I'm glad that you won't have to wait until "September" for your chance to help Rocket and the gang.  Just like how "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," everybody wants to experience this thrilling new attraction.  Don't worry, "One Way or Another" I'll help you learn how you can secure your spot in line.

    In order to join the 7:00 A.M. virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you will need to have a valid theme park ticket and park reservation for EPCOT.  There is also another chance to join the virtual queue each day at 1:00 P.M., but you must have already visited EPCOT that day to try for a spot at that time.  If you want to stick with your current plan to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios first and park hop to EPCOT later that day, you would have the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.  As a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel Guest, you may purchase an Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 A.M.  You will just need to select a time window after 2:00 P.M. since that is the time that you will be able to "Conga" on over to EPCOT with your Park Hopper ticket.  Please keep in mind that park hopping availability is subject to park capacity limitations.  

    It is also worth mentioning this "Disco Inferno" hot tip. Registered Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels are eligible to attend extended evening theme park hours.  If extended evening theme park hours are offered at EPCOT during your visit, you could also experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind by requesting a virtual queue spot at 6:00 P.M. on the date of this event.  You can check to see when extended evening theme park hours are offered using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    One of my favorite things about Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the epic soundtrack.  If you're wondering about the songs that you might hear during your ride, I just might have dropped some clues here in my answer.  Melissa, I hope you love this new attraction as much as I do!  I am Groot!
