Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will open with a virtual queue. Guests may also have the opportunity to purchase an individual Lightning Lane entry to the attraction; however, there will be no standby queue option.
How to enter the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind virtual queue:
Beginning at 7:00 a.m. on the day of their park reservation, guests with a valid ticket or pass and a Disney Park Pass Reservation for Epcot will be able to check for an available boarding group via the My Disney Experience app and request access to the virtual queue. This can be done before you enter the park.
There will be a second opportunity to join the virtual queue at 1:00 p.m. for anyone who couldn’t join a boarding group earlier in the day. Guests must be inside Epcot to access the second virtual queue opportunity.
To give as many guests as possible the opportunity to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, each guest can only enter the virtual queue once per day during regular park hours. Please note that joining the virtual queue does not guaranteeyou will be able to ride.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Virtual queue during extended evening hours
Registered guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, or other select hotels will have an additional opportunity to request to join the virtual queue at 6:00 p.m. during extended evening theme park hours on select dates. Guests with this benefit do not need to be in Epcot to request to join at that time.
Guests will need valid admission and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day to experience extended evening hours. Guests can also experience extended evening hours if they have a ticket or annual pass with the Park Hopper option and first enter the park where they made their reservation. Click here for details.
