    Hi there! Have there been any updates to how much longer the virtual queue will be in use for Cosmic Rewind? We’re in the process of planning a trip and strategizing reservations with park-hopper tickets. Thanks! Lee

    Hi, Herman!  Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to chat with you today about my favorite Walt Disney World Resort attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!  I was eagerly awaiting the opening of this new ride last year, and "I Ran" straight to EPCOT to experience it during its opening weekend.  I'm happy to say that the attraction exceeded my high expectations.  Riding Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is more than just thrilling; it's pure joy!

    It seems like "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and help the Guardians save the galaxy.  Since Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind remains such a popular attraction, a virtual queue system is still in place for Guests wishing to ride.  The virtual queue system keeps wait times low so that your wait doesn't feel as long as the entire month of "September."  At this time, I have not heard any news about the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind being discontinued.  I recommend that you plan your trip with the assumption that the virtual queue will still be in effect, and maybe have a backup plan just in case anything changes in the meantime.  Be sure to "Conga" on over to the Disney Parks Blog and follow along for all of the latest news and announcements.

    Here's a "Disco Inferno" hot tip for you:  You can also access Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane entry.  This purchase can be made using your My Disney Experience mobile app and it allows you to select a one-hour time window in which you can experience the attraction.  You can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in addition to joining the virtual queue if you'd like to ride twice in one day.  While you must have a theme park reservation for EPCOT to join the virtual queue on a given day, if you plan to start out in another park and park hop to EPCOT, you're welcome to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.  Just be sure that you select an Individual Lightning Lane time that is after park hopping hours begin.  Whether you access the attraction via the virtual queue, Individual Lightning Lane, or both, "One Way or Another," you're sure to have a blast saving the galaxy.

    In my opinion, one of the best parts of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the amazing soundtrack.  If you're wondering what songs you might get to hear while riding the attraction, I just might have left you some clues here in my answer.  Herman, if you have any additional questions about virtual queues or any other aspect of your vacation, please visit us at planDisney again.

    I am Groot!
