    If I have a park reservation for EPCOT but won't be able to arrive until around 3pm, will I be able to enter the 1pm virtual queue for Cosmic Rewind or do I have to physically by in the park?

    The Guardians are beyond excited that you are ready to help save the galaxy on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Christopher, and I’m more than happy to walk you through the virtual queue process so you can do just that!

    First and foremost, you must have valid theme park admission, as well as a theme park reservation at EPCOT, to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind on a given day. You will have two opportunities to join the virtual queue, which is located in the menu on your My Disney Experience mobile app. Click the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner and choose “Virtual Queues” from the options that appear, then select EPCOT on the next screen.

    At 7:00 a.m., you can join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, but you do not need to physically be in EPCOT to join at this time. The second opportunity to join the virtual queue is at 1:00 p.m., but you do have to physically be in EPCOT at the time to do so. I know that’s not what you were hoping to hear, but don’t give up hope! I have seen the virtual queue remain open well past 1:00 p.m. before, so I encourage you to check in your app once you arrive to see if you can still join.

    If, however, it’s a priority for you to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind during your EPCOT day, you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane via the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app (you can find it listed in the app’s menu). While Individual Lightning Lanes must be purchased, you’ll be able to choose your arrival window, assuring you get to experience the attraction. Keep in mind that Guests of Disney Resort hotels can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes at 7:00 a.m., while all other Guests must wait until the official park opening time to make their purchases.

    I hope this information proves useful, Christopher. Have an absolutely amazing trip, and let us know if you have further questions.

    Until we meet again,
