    Hi, what would be a good time to arrive in the morning for a TRON reservation or boarding group. I am not staying on property.

    Hey Howdy Hey Carter and welcome to planDisney!

    I bet you are so excited about your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth really soon! It sounds like you have a very specific list of "Must Do" attractions in Magic Kingdom which is great. Knowing the details of experiences such as TRON Lightcycle / Run and navigating the details of the Virtual Queue is key. I will be happy to give you more information on the details of joining the queue for this experience. 

    The addition of Virtual Queues to newly opened attractions in the Walt Disney World Resort is such a great benefit. So many Guests can experience the attractions without having to wait in several hour-long traditional stand-by lines and adds so much efficiency to your park experience. On the day you will be visiting Magic Kingdom, you can join the Virtual Queue from your My Disney Experience app starting at 7:00 AM.

    From your home screen, scroll until you find the Virtual Queue option and tap the button "Join Virtual Queue". Will be taken to a screen to confirm your party, the theme park and the attraction you would like to join the queue for. Make sure to do this a few minutes before 7:00 AM so you are ready when the queue opens. You may have to refresh your screen at 7 but you should be prompted to join the queue for your party at that time. You will then be given a boarding group and an expected return time. 

    If you do not get a boarding group at 7, don't worry Carter, there still is hope to experience the attraction! You will also get a chance to join the queue again at 1:00 PM. The only catch with the afternoon request is that you need to be inside Magic Kingdom for that one. 

    When requesting a boarding group through the Virtual Queue, there is no telling which assignment you will be given. I would plan to get to the Magic Kingdom right when the park opens just in case you are assigned an early boarding group. Once your group is called, you have 1 hour to redeem your spot. Late arrivals may not be allowed in. 

    If you want to guarantee you have the chance to experience this attraction, you can also purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. Doing this through your My Disney Experience app will guarantee you a specific return time for the attraction. This does come with an extra charge that varies depending on the day but may be worth it if you want to ensure your ride experience. 

    I hope you have a Magical time on your upcoming trip and have the experience on TRON. It is one of the most thrilling attractions in Magic Kingdom and an experience like no other. Please feel free to stop back if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    To infinity and Beyond,
