    If our Gardians virtual queue group- that we got at 7AM- estimated callback is 6:30pm, can we still join the extended hours virtual queue at 6pm AS WELL? Thanks!

    Hi Katie,

    Welcome to planDisney! I know you must be excited to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. I've been able to ride twice so far and was absolutely blown away both times! Friends have asked me to describe it to them, and as I'm sure you'll soon discover it's truly unlike any other attraction; totally incredible and completely indescribable. The added surprise of the accompanying music track just makes the entire experience that much more amazing.

    I'm glad to hear that you're already aware of the Virtual Queue system currently in place for this popular attraction.  I highly recommend attempting to join the first Virtual Queue as soon as it opens at 7 a.m. EST. You'll need valid admission and a Theme Park Reservation at EPCOT in order to enter this queue on the day of your visit. If you weren't able to successfully join the 7 a.m. Virtual Queue there will be a second opportunity at 1 p.m. You won't need to be in EPCOT at that time to join, but you will have had to enter the park at some point already that day. Based on my research, guests may only join one Virtual Queue per day during regular park hours. So if you are able to secure a boarding group at 7 a.m., you wouldn't be able to join the Virtual Queue again at 1 p.m.  

    There is one caveat I'd like to discuss. Guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, and additional participating hotels will have a third bonus opportunity to join a Virtual Queue at 6 p.m. during Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. So if you've started your day by securing a boarding group right at 7 a.m, or later that afternoon at 1 p.m,  you'll still be able to attempt joining the 6 p.m  Virtual Queue as a participating resort guest. This attraction is so unique I know you'll be thrilled to enjoy it as many times as you possibly can!

    I just double-checked the Hours & Events Calendar and it appears that extended hours are currently offered at EPCOT on Monday evenings. This schedule is subject to change so keep an eye on the calendars for the most up-to-date information.

    I'd like to mention one last thing in an effort to help you assist the Guardians in their quest to save the galaxy. Whether you're lucky enough to snag a boarding group via Virtual Queue or not, you'll also have the ability to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for entry to this high-thrill attraction. Registered Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests can make this purchase right at 7 am. If you'll be staying off-site, Individual Lightning Lane purchases will be available to you once EPCOT officially opens for the day. Again, be sure to check the park hours calendar for the most up-to-date information, and keep in mind Individual Lightning Lane time slots often sell out early.  I suggest acting quickly if that's your preferred plan to enjoy this out-of-this-world attraction.

    Best of luck on your galactic quest!
