    Hi Doug< Please confirm that the Genie + option is not required to ride on the Galaxy ride in Epcot and the Avatar ride in Animal Kingdom. I realize you need to enroll in the Virtual Queque first, but is that all that is required? Thank you!


    Thanks for writing me back!

    Yes, you are correct that you can ride both Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Avatar Flight of Passage without having to purchase Genie+. In fact, Genie+ does not give you any special access to those two attractions, so Genie+ would not help you out. In both cases you can just purchase the Individual Lightning Lane passes to gain access to each. You would do so on each of the respective dates that you visit these parks. Also, both attractions do have traditional stand-by lines as well.

    But I do want to clarify that the Virtual Queue is only in use for the Guardians of the Galaxy ride. That is a program that is only ever running on one attraction at a time for all of Walt Disney World. However, you can do both that and the Individual Lightning Lane purchase at the same time. They are independent of each other. I recommend trying both!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you can make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase starting at 7 am the day of your visit, while other guests can start ordering when the park opens.

    Please feel free to write me back if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
