    What is the latest return time a 7:00 am Virtual Queue For Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will yield? Plan to Hop from Animal Kingdom to Epcot at the 2:00 window, but afraid I wont be able to get in on the 1:00 virtual queue opening window.

    Hi Jacob, welcome to planDisney!

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is my absolute favorite Walt Disney World Resort attraction. Space and time are suspended as you launch into an intergalactic storyline with an epic dance-worthy soundtrack.   

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind can currently be experienced by joining a virtual queue and/or purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane; there is no standby line for this popular attraction. I understand you wish to experience Guardians on a day you have a theme park reservation for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Unfortunately, during your December visit you can only join the 7:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. virtual queues for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind with a theme park reservation for EPCOT. Before Sadness takes over, let's bring Joy into the conversation.

    You can experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind with a theme park reservation for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane on your park day. Individual Lighting Lanes are purchased via the Tip Board of your My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's homepage > Tip Board > Scroll to attraction). Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can purchase at 7:00 a.m.; all other Guests can purchase as soon as EPCOT opens. You can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for all eligible Guests with whom you are connected as Family & Friends in My Disney Experience. When booking an Individual Lightning Lane, you get to choose your return time.

    Since park hopping hours currently begin at 2:00 p.m., Jacob, I recommend purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind for a return time of 3:00 p.m. or later. This gives you plenty of time to get to EPCOT, take pictures in front of Spaceship Earth, and walk to Guardians. If you have a few extra minutes, stop by Club Cool for some complimentary sips of refreshing sodas from around the world. It's also important to note that Individual Lightning Lanes cannot be modified and are nonrefundable.

    You have a lot to look forward to, Jacob. While looking forward, don't forget to look up! The tops of the holiday trees found throughout the theme parks and resorts are some of my favorite Disney details.
