'Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind' preview March 17 2022

Disney has today confirmed the Genie queue options that will be available for EPCOT's "Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind" rollercoaster opening May 27 2022 at Walt Disney World.

When "Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind" opens, a virtual queue will be in place. Guests will need to use the My Disney Experience app to enter the attraction. A standby queue will not be available. Each Guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day. Boarding groups for a virtual queue are limited, subject to availability, and are not guaranteed. Not all boarding groups may be called to return, based on availability of the experience.

Guests may purchase individual Lightning Lane entry for this attraction when it opens, although pricing is not yet available and Cosmic Rewind will not be included with the standard $15 Genie+ option.

The current highest price Lightning Lane queue at Walt Disney World is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at $15, which would seem the most comparable e-ticket class attraction to Cosmic Rewind.

Based on previous virtual queues, we should expect availability for Cosmic Rewind to reach capacity within seconds of opening each day, making experiencing the ride somewhat of a lottery.

How the Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Virtual Queue works

Plan Ahead — Before Your Visit

Make sure you have the My Disney Experience app, with notifications enabled so you receive important updates about the virtual queue—including callback details and daily distribution times.
Select one member of your party to access the virtual queue to check for an available boarding group for everyone in your party. If multiple people in your party try to join the virtual queue simultaneously, that may inhibit your ability to join a group.

Get Ready to Join the Virtual Queue

On the day of your visit, you may have the opportunity to join the virtual queue at daily distribution times, which are subject to change or cancellation as availability allows. Distribution schedules will be available in the My Disney Experience app.

Follow these steps to join the virtual queue:

  • Step 1 – Check Availability: Log in to the My Disney Experience app at one of the distribution times. Select “Virtual Queues” on the home screen to view the current status and next steps for joining a virtual queue. The app will indicate when there is no availability for a specific distribution time, or if a backup group is available.

  • Step 2 – Enroll Your Group: As long as your Disney account is linked to your group's park tickets, and everyone has valid admission and park reservations for the park you will visit, you can enroll everyone in the virtual queue at the same time (subject to availability).

  • Step 3 – Enjoy the Experience: If your boarding group is called to return, you’ll receive a notification via the My Disney Experience app. Then, head over to the entrance of the experience within your designated return window.

I know there were a few days reported where they were available until noon or later.

It hasn't been odd for me to see them well past the 1st hour or 2 after the ILLs open up. This is our 3rd ride on it so far and I've been able to easily buy them each time.

Anyone happen to know how long the Individual LLs last for this? We’re starting our day at MK on Saturday but had hoped to ride when we hop to Epcot in the afternoon.

Last week, my estimated BG time was 8:52-8:59 PM all day. They wound up calling us at 8 PM exactly. Based on the posts preceding this here is another useful stat - we were BG 182.
