    We are flying down on a Saturday morning and have park reservations for Epcot that day. If we get in the virtual queue for Guardians at 7 but get too early a boarding group, can we cancel it and then try for the 1:00 group later in the day?

    Welcome to planDisney, Melinda, where we will help you "One Way or Another!" I like how you're planning ahead, and I'm incredibly excited you want to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit. This is one of my all-time favorite rides, so let's see how you can "Conga" on in to save the galaxy,

    Although guests should technically join their assigned boarding group for this attraction during their return window, it never hurts to ask a Cast Member if you have an extenuating circumstance. I had a similar situation a couple of months ago, but I was driving to Orlando and missed my boarding group window by a couple of hours. I headed straight to the attraction entrance and explained my situation politely. I was allowed to join the queue, but please be aware that Cast Members consider factors like the current wait time when making that decision. 

    I spoke with a helpful Cast Member who said that as long as you don't redeem the virtual queue you joined at 7:00 AM, you will be eligible to join the 1:00 PM virtual queue once you've scanned into EPCOT. So my advice is to steer left as soon as you arrive and tell the Cosmic Rewind Cast Member, "I Ran!" as fast as possible to get there. If you can't board, I suggest you join that 1:00 queue.

    Melinda, I'm sending pixie dust in a "Disco Inferno" so you can "Rule the World" on your next visit. And if you get the song "September" when you ride, please don't tell me because it's the only one I haven't had! Please stop by planDisney anytime. 

    Magic awaits,
