    Im aware that with Genie Plus you cant get a lightning lane for a ride twice. But I was wondering if its allowed to get the virtual que for Cosmic Rewind and then also buy the individual lightning lane for it as well.

    Hi there, Dayne, and welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you're gearing up for some cosmic fun on your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort and securing a chance (or two!) to save the galaxy on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is just the intergalactic adventure to elevate your vacation experience! After all, Everybody Wants to Rule the World! So let's explore your question and get you situated for this epic adventure!

    Dayne, the good news is that yes, you do have the opportunity to try and secure both an Individual Lightning Lane purchase and a boarding group through the complimentary Virtual Queue on the same day, giving you two chances to blast into space on this attraction! To do so, I'd recommend being ready with lightning-fast fingers to join the Virtual Queue first, right at 7 AM, as these spots will fill up in seconds! Once you have attempted to join a boarding group, I would immediately move to the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app and purchase your Individual Lightning Lane for the attraction.

    If you are traveling with others, you can also divide and conquer - have one person join the Virtual Queue while the other purchases the Individual Lightning Lane. Before doing this, be sure everyone who will be riding is linked together in your Friends and Family list and has their valid theme park admission also linked to their My Disney Experience accounts. With a little faith, trust, and pixie dust, One Way or Another, you'll hopefully be ready to Conga to the front of the line more than once during your day at EPCOT!

    Dayne, one final tip I'll remind you of is that the Virtual Queue does open again at 1 PM, so if you do not secure a boarding group during your first attempt, definitely try again! And if you happen to be a Guest at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, or select other hotels on an evening when EPCOT is hosting Extended Evening Hours, there will also be a third virtual queue that opens at 6 PM for those eligible guests! You can attempt to join this final queue even if you have already secured a spot in either of the previous two queues for the day!

    I'm wishing you all the cosmic power in the universe that you'll be able to experience Guardians of the Galaxy more than once on your visit; feel free to come back to planDisney anytime if we can help with any other missions to make your vacation extra magical!

    See you real soon,
