    I’m a passholder and going to Epcot on a “good to go” day with people who are doing a one day pass. We were able to add each other on the app but we are worried we won’t be able to join the virtual que together with since there is no need for reservations

    Hello there, Jimbell. Welcome to planDisney!

    If you have a valid Annual Pass and the day you are planning on going to EPCOT is not one of your blockout dates, you should be all set to join that Virtual Queue on a Good-to-Go day. Similarly, as long as your friends have date-based theme park tickets, they should be able to join as well! Just make sure you are all connected through the My Family & Friends list, that you confirm your Boarding Group before 7 a.m. through the My Disney Experience mobile app, and that you're refreshing the app right before it turns 7 a.m. so that you don't miss your chance!

    Now, Jimbell. I'm going to say something crazy. And if you're like Hans from Frozen then you LOVE crazy. I'm sure you know that if you don't get a Boarding Group for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in the morning, you have the chance to try again at 1 p.m. as long as you're in EPCOT. But if you don't score a spot for Guardians in the morning and you want to pivot and try for TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park instead, you technically could do that if you're going on a Good-to-Go day. You see, when you go on a day that requires a reservation, you can only try for a Virtual Queue spot in the morning for the attraction in the park at which you have the reservation. You can't really pivot. But on a day that doesn't require a reservation, you can go to whichever park has the attraction for which you score a Boarding Group. So if one doesn't work out, you can quickly try for the other (subject to availability).

    Okay. So here's where we go completely crazy. And if you're like Anna, you like the really crazy things! Now, I will warn you that this isn't an easy maneuver. And it requires a bunch of luck and some hustling. If you get a Boarding Group for Guardians at 7 a.m. and you are called back and ride early in the morning, you can technically travel over to Magic Kingdom Park and as long as you are tapped into that park by 1 p.m., you can try for a spot in TRON's Virtual Queue! Once again, this does require some luck. After all, at this time, you can only be enrolled in one Virtual Queue at a time. So if you're in the Guardians queue and haven't ridden yet, you cannot try for TRON. But hey, it's good information to have in your back pocket. Oh, and if your friends wanted to do this with you, they'd just have to have the Park Hopper Option on their ticket!

    Of course, I also understand having your heart set on EPCOT and/or not wanting to leave a lot up to fate and run around. EPCOT is always a solid day. Guardians or no Guardians!

    If you have any other questions or want any other (crazy or not-so-crazy) ideas, feel free to reach out to me.
