    Is it possible to secure LL or virtual queue without an Epcot reservation? My family has park hopper tickets and we are hoping to do Guardians one afternoon while we are there. We are leaving on Sunday and I am trying to decide if we should change plans.

    Welcome to planDisney, Robert! I'm so glad that I get to answer this question for you before the last day of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. The last day is always bittersweet, but it's the perfect time to start thinking about your next trip to The Most Magical Place On Earth.

    If you have tickets with the Park Hopper option, then you are certainly allowed to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane selection for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind without changing your Disney Park Pass reservation to EPCOT. Just make sure that you make your selection for a time after 2 p.m., which is when park hopping begins. Individual Lightning Lane selections begin at 7 a.m. for guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel while everyone else can begin to book when the Theme Park opens, which is 9 a.m. this Sunday when you're visiting. 

    I want to make sure that you know that Individual Lightning Lane selection times for this attraction go very quickly first thing in the morning, and it is possible that there will not be any left to buy at 9 a.m. when the purchase window opens for off-site guests. If you are not a Resort Hotel guest and you're staying somewhere off Disney property, I would recommend changing your Disney Park Pass reservation to EPCOT to be eligible for the Virtual Queue when it opens at 7 a.m. and again for the second drop at 1 p.m. If saving the galaxy is a must-do for your family before you head home, this is the best course of action for you!

    Have a magical day, Robert!
