    Can I be logged into my mde account and try for the lightning pass for 7am, and my friend be on his own account and try for the vq at 7am? I thought I heard the app may wash out both things if done separately at the same time? Or is one phone/account best

    Hi Danielle,

    Welcome back to planDisney! It sounds like we are two Disney peas in a pod because I too was prepared to use multiple devices and My Disney Experience accounts to secure those coveted attraction spots on my last visit. I'm happy to report that I was able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane entry for TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise as well as join the Virtual Queue right at 7 a.m. on the dot on our Magic Kingdom Park day. I'm happy to share my experience to help you prepare for your visit.

    I normally manage all the plans for my family, but I wanted to enlist my husband's help on this most recent visit. He downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App and we made sure our accounts were linked via the Family & Friends list in advance of our trip. On the morning of our visit, we were able to pre-select our party of two adults and two children through the app prior to 7 a.m. This ensured we were both ready to click "Join" or "Purchase" when the time came. My husband tackled the Virtual Queue and I focused on purchasing the Individual Lightning Lane. Our son joined in the fun and gave us the official countdown to 7 a.m. from his own device. It was quite the sight to see us with laser focus while all still in our pajamas. Thankfully, we were both successful in our quests. My husband received an early boarding group and I was able to purchase an evening Individual Lightning Lane so we could enter the grid both day and night.

    I've heard that using the same account on multiple devices can work to attempt joining a Virtual Queue, but I'm not sure if it would work if you were purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane and attempting to join Virtual Queue since there is a transaction process involved. I'd recommend confirming your accounts and plans are linked in your respective My Disney Experience Apps and accessing your individual accounts from your own devices. If you are unsuccessful in your attempt at 7 a.m. there will be a second Virtual Queue opportunity at 1 p.m. Keep in mind, you must be in the park to join the afternoon Virtual Queue.

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT also utilizes a Virtual Queue in addition to an Individual Lightning Lane purchase, so be sure to make plans to experience it for yourself.  It's my favorite attraction across all of the Disney Parks, and the surprise musical component really makes the ride feel like an out-of-this-world adventure!

    I'm wishing you luck on your Virtual Queue quest! Feel free to stop back and ask us more questions as you prepare for your visit.

    Magic and memories,
