    We have tickets to an Epcot after hours event. Can I also purchase a time slot to ride on the guardians of the Galaxy cosmic rewind at 7 PM for when we enter the park or is this option only to day park guests?

    Hi Lisa! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! I'm excited to hear you are planning to attend Disney After Hours at EPCOT! These types of events have been some of my favorites for quite some time. I love experiencing the parks in the night sky with fewer Guests. This always allows for shorter wait times at many attractions and gives me the chance to have a completely different experience than if I were visiting during the day.

    One of the perks of attending Disney After Hours is being able to enter the parks beginning at 7 PM. This gives you three extra hours to explore the park before the event officially begins. In regards to the Individual Lightning Lane option for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, currently you need a valid ticket and a linked Disney Park Pass Reservation to purchase one. Since theme park reservations are going away in the new year for date-based tickets, it may be possible to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane since you will have a special event ticket for later in the day. There hasn't been clarification on this just yet, but I would continue following the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements. Your best bet will be to open the My Disney Experience App the day of your visit and see if you are eligible to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. It will clearly state whether you will have access to it or not. If so, make sure to purchase it for a time that you will actively be in the park.

    Regardless if you get a chance to ride this attraction during the first couple of hours, you certainly will have the ability once the event officially kicks off. The Walt Disney World website does not currently state if there will be a Virtual Queue designated for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind during Disney After Hours, but stay tuned for more information.

    Lisa, I hope this information helps you plan for your stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    Happy holidays!
