    Hello. If all is running smoothly with a VQ ride, might I expect that my return time be within a certain time frame? So if I get a group at the 7 am VQ drop, can I reasonably expect that my return time be before 1 or 2 pm since another drop happens at 1?

    Hi Candyce! Welcome to planDisney. This is a great question, so thanks for bringing it to us.

    Ticket-holding Guests can request to join a Virtual Queue once per day during regular park hours. I'm afraid I can't guarantee any timings for Virtual Queues. 

    Let's walk through a Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind example. There are (up to) three opportunities to enter the Virtual Queue each day.

    Your first opportunity to join is at 7am, (no need to be in EPCOT) or at 1pm (must be in EPCOT). The third potential opportunity is at 6pm (no need to be in EPCOT) on specific dates during Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, a benefit for registered Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts and Villas. Log into your My Disney Experience App to access any virtual queue. 

    Anything is possible at Walt Disney World, including riding the thrilling Guardians of the Galaxy twice in one day. Suppose you get lucky and secure a virtual queue at 7am, you'll receive a boarding number and can join the Virtual Queue line when it's your turn. You can request to join the Virtual Queue again at 6pm if you're a Disney Resort hotel Guest eligible for Extended Evening hours.

    Otherwise, you can buy an Individual Lightning Lane for this ride and choose the time slot when booking.

    Now, in many circumstances, I would say once is enough. When referring to Guardians, however, once is never enough, and I highly recommend experiencing this thrill over and again!

    Candyce, I hope this information helps you today and that you enjoy all the thrills at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
