    Do we have to be staying onsite at a Walt Disney World Resort in order to get into the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy or Tron at 7 AM? We have park tickets and reservations but I heard you have to be staying at a disney resort for the 7am queue.

    Hey there, Freeda!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing us your excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. In just a couple of days, you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth - the countdown is almost over! You've come to the right place, Freeda. I'm happy to help you prepare for a visit filled with the latest and greatest Walt Disney World Resort thrills!

    At this time, Guests may experience both TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT either via virtual queue or Individual Lightning Lane entry purchase. I'm happy to inform you that, as long as you have valid theme park admission (and a theme park reservation, if applicable), you should be able to join a virtual queue, even if you aren't staying at a Disney Resort hotel! Simply open up your My Disney Experience mobile app just before 7:00 a.m., tap "Virtual Queues," confirm any eligible members from your Family & Friends List, and be prepared to select "Join Virtual Queue" as soon as the clock strikes 7:00 a.m. on the dot!

    Freeda, if you're unsuccessful in obtaining a spot in the virtual queue at 7:00 a.m., you'll have another opportunity to try at 1:00 p.m. The only difference here is that, in order to grab a virtual queue spot at the 1:00 p.m. release, you'll have to be inside the theme park. If you'll be attending an after-hours event, like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, you'll have yet another chance to join the virtual queue at 6:00 p.m.!

    I hope this advice helps your group to prepare for a thrilling Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Freeda. If you have any additional questions before or during your trip, you're always welcome to return to planDisney! We're here to help you make magical memories.

    See ya real soon,
