    Will be visiting Aug 25-31/22.Staying off site.Will purchase 1day ticket w/park hop. Hoping to do HS and Epcot b/c we rly want to do Rise&Cosmic Rwd. Suggestions on how to book virtual cue or lightning lane? Is there a chance we could do both rides?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kayleigh. 

    It sounds like you've got a pretty great Disney day planned. I had the pleasure of riding Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind on my most recent trip. Both of these attractions are out-of-this-world. They have everything you want in a ride. Since both attractions are extremely popular, it's going to take some faith, trust, and pixie dust to experience them both in one day.

    If I were you, I would begin the day in Disney's Hollywood Studios. When the park opens, you can head straight to Batuu and join the standby line for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. You can then enjoy your morning in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. You have to experience Millenium Falcon: Smuggler's Run too! You can hop over to EPCOT after 2:00 PM.

    Since there's no standby line option for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, I'd suggest trying to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane entrance at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit. These get snapped up quickly, so you'll have to be quick. Just be aware that you'll want to secure a time after 2:00 PM, since you have to wait until that time to park hop. On the same day, at 1:00 PM, you should try to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Again, you're going to have to be quick. Availability goes in seconds! In my experience, the more people in your party trying to join the virtual queue the better chance you have of getting a slot. Just remember, you'll want an Individual Lightning Lane for after 2:00 PM! 

    That's how I'd approach this challenge, Kayleigh. I'll be wishing upon a star that your dreams come true and you get to experience these brilliant attractions.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Kayleigh.
