    I have park reservations for all 4 parks and Park Hopper tickets for all parks. I'm going to animal kingdom today, can I book Guardians of the Galaxy (Epcot) while I'm at animal kingdom at 1.00pm ??

    Welcome to planDisney, Amanda, and I hope your day is off to a magical start at Walt Disney World Resort! Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is on your itinerary, so look for the newest baby elephant if you go on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Your plans sound ambitious since you're also considering saving the galaxy, so let's look at how the virtual queue works for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

    As you probably know, there are two times that guests can attempt to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Since your tickets require theme park reservations, you'd need to have a reservation for EPCOT to join the 7:00 AM queue. You can join the morning queue from anywhere; I've joined from the backseat of a rideshare!

    At 1:00, only guests who are scanned in at EPCOT can join the afternoon virtual queue. Unfortunately, if you're physically at Animal Kingdom, you won't be able to join. I know that's not what you hoped to hear, but teaming up with Rocket and Groot might still be possible.

    Since you have the Park Hopper Option, you can take complimentary bus service from Animal Kingdom to EPCOT starting at 10:00 AM. I'd suggest you allow an hour or so to get there so you'll be scanned in and ready to tap "Join Virtual Queue" promptly at 1:00 PM. This attraction will show an estimated time that your boarding group will be called, so you could either head back to Animal Kingdom or stick around EPCOT until it's time to ride. I hear there's cake and toast waiting on board the Nova ship!

    Amanda, I hope your day is full of exotic creatures of the Terran variety and more! Please stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
