    We have tickets for the after hours event at Epcot in June. How will that work with Guardians of the Galaxy ride? For the cost, I really don't want to have to get into a virtual queue at 6:00 like with the free extended hours for deluxe hotels.

    Hi Melinda! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    Disney After Hours has been a welcomed addition to the parks since their return earlier this year. Being able to explore the parks at night with limited crowds has always been a key selling point. With Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure now at EPCOT, there are even more options to check out during this event!

    Melinda, I have great news for you! I spoke to a Cast Member earlier today and they confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is expected to have a standby queue during the Disney After Hours event. If this is the case, this attraction will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Hopefully, the lines will not be too long, since there with be a limited amount of Guests in the park during the event. This will differ from the current system in place during normal park hours and extended evening hours. Currently, Guests are required to have either a Virtual Queue boarding group or an Individual Lightning Lane reservation to ride. This system will stay in place for the foreseeable future.

    One of the perks of Disney After Hours is being able to enter the park as early as 7 PM! With the park being EPCOT, you can venture into the World Showcase and enjoy the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival that will still be taking place in June. There are outdoor kitchens with cuisines from all around the world to try. You can also start riding attractions as soon as you enter, but I would probably wait until the event starts to take advantage of the lower wait times. 

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

    See ya real soon!
