    I'm planning to by individual ride tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy @ 7:00AM on June 5th. I have 16 friends and family on my account that will be with me but not all will want to ride. What is the best way to go through the purchase process?

    Hi Kathy,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I’m so excited to hear that you and your party are planning to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind! You’ve done the first step, confirming that everyone who wants to ride is added to your Friends and Family List in the My Disney Experience mobile app. The other thing I suggest double confirming is that everyone has their EPCOT Disney Park Pass reservations. Once these are confirmed, let’s move on to the day of booking!

    If you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection or a few other select hotels, you’ll have the chance to get your Individual Lightning Lanes for the attraction at 7:00 a.m. If you and your party aren’t staying on property, you will have the chance to book when EPCOT opens for the day. 

    Here are my best two pieces of advice: When booking Individual Lightning Lanes, do so first! If you were planning to utilize Disney Genie+ Service that day, make that selection after trying to book your Individual Lightning Lane attraction. My next tip would be to have your credit card information already saved in the app or use other quick forms of payment like Apple Pay. This will save you from needing to enter your credit card information which will (hopefully) get you quickly through the purchasing process.

    When I’m trying to book a specific attraction, I’m in the app early with my finger over the “Tip Board” under the “My Genie Day” section. Right at 7:00 a.m., you’ll want to hit “Change Park”, select “EPCOT”, then scroll to “Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind” (alphabetical order). Next select, “Individual Lightning Lane” and follow the purchasing process. During the process, you’ll be able to unselect / select the members of your party that don’t / do want to ride the attraction. Remember, this is subject to availability!

    Finally, if you aren’t able to book an Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m., check back occasionally. You never know what can pop up! Also, remember that you can use the virtual queue (also subject to availability)!

    I know that was a ton of information, but I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful. My fingers are crossed for you! If you have further questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
