    Do I need to be inside the park to enter the Virtual Queue? Only at 1pm? What about for 7:00am?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lysiane Maria! Your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth is just about a week away, and I'm sure you are counting down the days and minutes until you arrive! With so many exciting new summer celebrations to discover, it's a great time to visit!

    Currently, there are two attractions that are operating on a Virtual Queue system - Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT and TRON Lightcycle/Run in Magic Kingdom Park. When Tiana's Bayou Adventure opens on June 28, it will also be operating on a Virtual Queue. Let's dive into the logistics so you'll be ready to secure a boarding group for each of these adventures!

    Virtual Queue enrollment is offered at 7 AM EST via the My Disney Experience mobile app. To join the Virtual Queue at this time, you do not need to be inside the Theme Park; you just have to have valid admission for the park where the ride is located. When you click Join Virtual Queue from the homepage of your mobile app, you will have the option to select which Theme Park and which attraction you would like to request. The app will verify your eligibility and allow you to select your travel party. I recommend logging in before 7 AM to complete these steps so you will be ready to snag your boarding group without these extra steps slowing you down. Once the clock strikes exactly 7 AM, you will want to refresh and quickly join the queue.

    If you do not get into a boarding group at 7 AM, you can try again at 1 PM, but you will have to be inside of the selected Theme Park to request access at that time. The process to join is the same, so again log on a little before 1 PM to select your travel party and confirm your eligibility.

    One other thing to keep in mind with the Virtual Queue is that you can only hold one active Virtual Queue at a time, and you may only join the Virtual Queue once per day for each attraction. The one exception to this is if you are Guest staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort on a day when Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are being offered. On these select nights, Guests can request to join the 6 PM Virtual Queue. You will not have to be inside the park at this time to join!

    Lysiana Maria, I hope this helps you to experience some of the best and newest attractions on your upcoming visit! If you have any other questions, come back and let me know! You've got a friend in me!

    See you real soon,
