Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind's Virtual Queue drop availability shifts to a new pattern in recent days

The virtual queue availability for EPCOT's Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind has recently shifted, bucking the trend that has remained mostly steady since opening.

For the second consecutive day today, the 7am virtual queue distribution has lasted longer than the 1pm distribution. Today's 7am drop reached capacity in 32 seconds, with the 1pm drop completed in 26 seconds. Yesterday saw the morning reach capacity in 11 seconds, followed by just 9 seconds in the afternoon.

Over the past month, the 1pm distribution has been available for upwards of a couple of hours. It is too early to say if we are seeing a long-term shift, but if you are planning a visit to EPCOT in the coming days, be aware of the recent trend, and don't assume that the afternoon distribution will be available for an extended period.

In addition to the distribution shift, the ride has been seeing some lengthy downtime over the past week. Saturday saw the ride closed for a third of the day, and there have been numerous reports of the teleportation pre-show being skipped entirely, and guests walked through the rooms to the loading station.
