    What happens if you have a dining reservation and your boarding group is called from the virtual queue?

    Hi there, Michele, and thanks for coming to planDisney with your vacation planning question! Before you know it, you'll be arriving at the Most Magical Place on Earth and kicking off your vacation with all the new summer celebrations in the theme parks and beyond! Whether you're splashing your way down the bayou on Tiana's Bayou Adventure or watching over 800 drones bring your favorite Disney characters to life in the skies above Disney Springs with Disney Dreams That Soar, you're sure to make so many magical memories this summer!

    The Virtual Queue system allows for Guests to secure a boarding group starting at 7 AM EST on the day they plan to experience some of the most popular attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and TRON Lightcycle/Run! When you join the Virtual Queue, you will be randomly assigned a boarding group that will be called back at some point in the day. If this coincides with other existing plans like an advance dining reservation, hakuna matata - no worries!

    Keep in mind that you do have one hour after your group has been called to enter the queue, and Cast Members can sometimes offer flexibility in the event of a conflict in your schedule. Just bring your dining reservation details, like a screenshot from your My Disney Experience mobile app, or even your dining receipt to the Cast Member at the attraction to see if they can accommodate your party. This actually happened to my family with Slinky Dog Dash; we had a dining reservation at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano that was going to conflict, so we went before to see what options we had. They were not able to let us ride earlier than our group, but assured us that if we came back a little late with proof of our reservation, we would be allowed to ride. Another option would be to visit with the Guest Experience Team Cast Members if you do have a conflict; they can often assist in adjusting plans as needed!

    Michele, I hope you get to experience all of the magic that awaits you this summer, enjoy all of your favorite meals, and enter the grid, save the galaxy, and splash down the bayou with no conflicts in your schedule! If you have any other vacation planning questions, come on back to planDisney and let us know! We're always happy to help!

    Magic and Memories,
