    If I am flying in on Saturday and join a queue for Guardians at 7am and if I get delayed at the airport and my group gets called before I arrive at the park, can I still ride it when we enter?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kelly! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. It sounds like we have a lot in common because I'm always trying to squeeze as much magic as possible into my days at Walt Disney World Resort. I have been known to join a Virtual Queue for an attraction while I'm still at home in Texas getting ready to board a flight, so let's chat about what happens if your flight is delayed and your group gets called and you can't get to the attraction in time.

    Kelly, unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will be able to return to an attraction and ride it after your group is called. You can always ask a Cast Member at the entrance to the attraction if you can ride past your return time, but it may not always be possible for your group to be accommodated if you return late. If you'll be at EPCOT by the early afternoon, there will be another drop of Virtual Queue return times for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at 1:00 PM, so it might be a good idea to try and join then if you can. Alternatively, you can also purchase an Individual Lightning Lane return time for a timeframe when you know you'll be there. Individual Lightning Lanes give you a bit more control over the time you're riding, so it might be worth it to make that purchase to ease your mind and make sure that you'll be there in time to save the galaxy. 

    Kelly, while you're at EPCOT, make sure to check out the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which just started last weekend! There are holiday foods from around the world to try, and the Storytellers will be out sharing the diverse holiday traditions from all the cultures of the World Showcase. In the evening, the Candlelight Processional will have three showings so you can catch the beautiful choir, talented orchestra, and celebrity narrator sharing the story of Christmas. 

    Have a magical day, Kelly!
