    We are staying at a Deluxe resort in May and will be taking advantage of Extended Evening Hours. How do we ride Guardians of the Galaxy and Tron during those hours. And will a morning boarding group affect riding those rides in the evening? Thanks

    Hello Halle!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited to help you plan the best day ever at Walt Disney World Resort! How do I know it will be the best day ever? It is because you can potentially ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind or Tron Lightcycle/Run three times in one day! 

    I mean, it is going to require focus, dexterity, and two smartphones! You may already know that Guests who have Theme Park Reservations for the Park with the ride you are interested in can join a virtual queue and secure a boarding group at 7:00 AM. At the same time, a Guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 AM as well! This can be done simultaneously but each one of you must use a separate My Disney Experience Account. Just a tip, if you are not successful with the virtual queue at 7:00 AM you can always try again at 1:00 PM but only if you are in the Park where the ride is located. For Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind that is EPCOT and for Tron Lightcycle/Run that's Magic Kingdom Park. I am basing the Tron Lightcycle/Run strategy on how it is working for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind as all the details are not fully out yet but it appears to be that it will operate in a very similar fashion.

    Now, since you have the wonderful advantage of Extended Evening Hours you have an additional opportunity to join a virtual queue at 6:00 PM. Normally, Guests can only do one virtual queue a day but for those with Extended Evening Hours, you have a bonus opportunity. For this bonus virtual queue opportunity you don't even need to be in the Park so you can reserve this during your Deluxe Resort room lounge time! 

    Just a reminder, there is right now no standby line for these attractions so make sure to secure that virtual queue or purchase the Individual Lightning Lane. Another important reminder, make sure that you are connected to your entire planning party on the Family & Friends List! This will make it easy to ensure everyone gets a chance to join you on all these experiences.

    More bonus tips because I'm feeling giddy thinking about your trip is to make sure your My Disney Experience app is updated, your internet or wifi is working at optimal speed, and that all of you competing for either a virtual queue or Individual Lightning Lane watch a clock and count down the seconds together till it's time to refresh, click and click. 

    I have trust in you to make this happen! If you have any more questions you can always come back and let me know!

    Have a magical time!
