    What happend if my boarding group for a virtual queue is at the same time as my dinner reservation?

    Hello, Kimiko! It's my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney. I'm so glad you stopped by with this question. 

    Kimiko, my very favorite attraction at Walt Disney World, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, is only available to enjoy via the Virtual Queue or by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane, so I appreciate this question. My trip to EPCOT just isn't complete without trying to save the galaxy alongside StarLord and the gang! 

    Now, Whether you're hoping to score a boarding group to my favorite attraction or maybe the newest thrill ride at Walt Disney World, TRON Lightcycle / Run, let's chat about Virtual Queues! While my hope is that your dining reservation won't overlap with your boarding group being called, there is a possibility, so my first recommendation is to keep a close watch on your estimated callback time via the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Once you have successfully joined a boarding group, you'll be able to view your estimated wait time. This will help you judge whether or not it might affect any upcoming dining reservations.

    If the times look like they will overlap, you have two options (and I would pick both of them)! First, visit the Guest Experience Team inside the park. You'll see Cast Members in blue shirts under a blue umbrella. You never know what Magic they can help with, so make sure to let them know about your overlapping plans. Second, the window for arrival after your boarding group is called is 1 hour, so even if you are eating while your group is called, there is still a chance you might make your time. If not, make sure to save your dining receipt and take a screenshot of your dining reservation on your smartphone. When your meal is over, head to the attraction and speak to a Cast Member, showing them the receipt from your meal or your reservation confirmation. Cast Members do their very best to accommodate when situations like this pop-up. 

    Kimiko, with faith, trust, and of course, a little bit of pixie dust, I know you'll have an unforgettable visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. In the meantime, I'll be wishing on a star that your plans perfectly align to have the Best. Day. Ever.
