    Hi there! I have a park hopper ticket and park reservation at EPCOT. Can I enter the virtual queue in the morning for both Cosmic Rewind AND Tron? Or will I have to do VQ for one and ILL for the other if I want to ride them each one. Thanks!

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Welcome back to planDisney. I'm excited to help with park hopping plans for your upcoming visit. 

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the best ride I've ever been on, so you are in for a real treat if this will be the first time you'll be experiencing it! My family couldn't stop raving about it as we enjoyed the rest of our day at EPCOT, and we always encourage our friends to try and secure a boarding group during their visits. TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise is also pretty fantastic (especially at night) so you won't want to miss it when visiting Magic Kingdom Park.

    I reached out to a Cast Member who confirmed that guests can only join one Virtual Queue at a time, so unfortunately, you wouldn't be able to join both at 7 a.m. on the day of your visit. A second Virtual Queue typically opens at 1 p.m. for both of these attractions, but you must be in the park to join. While Park Hopper Option tickets will allow you to visit a second park on the same day, subject to capacity, you won't be able to hop until 2 p.m. I've had friends successfully join an afternoon Virtual Queue a few hours later on lower crowd days, but there is no guarantee Tron would still be available by the time you enter Magic Kingdom Park that afternoon. The one exception would be days when Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are available to guests of Deluxe Resorts. Eligible guests will have a third opportunity to join a 6 p.m. Virtual Queue on those dates.

    Based on my recent experience, I'd recommend joining the morning Virtual Queue for Cosmic Rewind and purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for TRON Lightcycle / Run, if you're hoping to ride both on the same day. An Individual Lightning Lane purchase will allow you to select a one-hour return window, so I find it easier to plan around park hopping or even dining reservations. Plus, I think Tron is even more amazing at night, and well worth the purchase to ride when it's fully illuminated! My son and I are planning an epic 4-parks in 1-day hopping challenge and will be purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for Tron for that very reason. We're hoping to time it right after watching Happily Ever After- another must not miss experience!

    Elizabeth, I hope this was helpful. Please feel free to stop back with any additional questions. I'd be happy to help!

    Magic and memories,
