    How does Guardians of the Galaxy queue works in Epcot's After Hours Event?

    Hi Elay, welcome to planDisney!

    There are several ways to plus an already magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours is at the top of that list! This gift of time is offered to registered Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and Shades of Green on select nights at select parks as designated on the Hours and Events Calendar.

    During your June visit, Elay, Extended Evening Hours take place at EPCOT on Monday from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. and at Magic Kingdom Park on Wednesday from 10:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. There are currently two attractions at Walt Disney World Resort that are accessed by joining the 7:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. virtual queue instead of a traditional standby queue: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT and TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom Park. With valid admission and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day, or a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, Guests eligible for Extended Evening Hours can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to join an additional 6:00 p.m. virtual queue. Let's dig into those Disney details.

    On the day you wish to join the 6:00 p.m. virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, confirm your party in the My Disney Experience mobile app between 5:00 p.m. and 5:55 p.m. by doing the following:

    1. Click the three small lines at the bottom right of the app's home page --> Virtual Queues.
    2. Click the "Join Virtual Queue" button.
    3. Select EPCOT as your desired park.
    4. Click the blue "Confirm Your Party" button and select all eligible members of your Family & Friends List that wish to experience the attraction.
    5. At 6:00 p.m. on the dot, click the "Refresh" button. If all goes well, your Boarding Group Number and an Estimated Wait Time will appear. 

    You will receive a push notification on your phone once your boarding group is called. A few more important things to know about the virtual queue process:

    *You can join the 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. virtual queue from anywhere (inside EPCOT, by the pool, in your hotel room, etc). You must physically be in EPCOT to join the 1:00 p.m. virtual queue. 
    *You can join the 6:00 p.m. virtual queue in addition to the 7:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. virtual queue, which means it's possible to join two virtual queues for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in one day.

    Extended Evening Theme Park hours were the highlight of my family's trip earlier this month. We waited less than ten minutes for Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and enjoyed the extra elbow room strolling around EPCOT's World Showcase. I hope you have a similarly magical experience.

    Please reach out to me directly with any follow-up questions.
