    Can I purchase an individual lighting lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind if my first park is not Epcot and also not staying at a resort on property? For example, if my first park is Magic Kingdom and can’t park hop to Epcot until 2 PM.

    Hi Alexander. Thank you for reaching out to planDisney with your question!

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT is one of my absolute favorite rides at the Walt Disney World Resort right now. It is truly like a party in a ride! It's thrilling, funny, and just a blast! Plus, there are a few different song options that really make the attraction feel new and different each time you ride! If you are a Marvel fan (or just really love the ride experience), you'll definitely want to check out the Treasures of Xandar merchandise location for some otherworldy souvenirs!

    I'm happy to report that you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for this ride even if your first park and Theme Park Reservation is not for EPCOT. As long as you have a theme park ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you will be able to purchase the Individual Lightning Lane. When you go to do so, the My Disney Experience mobile app should default to return times after 2 p.m. EST, since that is the earliest you'll be able to park hop. If for some reason it doesn't, just make sure you are selecting a time after 2 p.m. And yes, you can still purchase an Individual Lightning Lane even if you are not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. However, you will not be able to do so at 7 a.m. Instead, you will wait to secure it when the park opens. So keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Calendar to see when EPCOT opens the day you want to ride.

    Alexander, if you love Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you will want to check out all the Disney thrills! In fact, I highly recommend the brand-new rollercoaster TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise in Magic Kingdom Park. And if you have a Theme Park Reservation for Magic Kingdom Park, you can try to snag a spot in the Virtual Queue at 7 a.m. You can also purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for this attraction. Be sure to check out the planDisney Official Guide to Navigating the Grid at TRON Lightcycle / Run!

    Feel free to reach out again in the future should you have any other questions. We are always happy to help!
