Disney has today confirmed Virtual Queue boarding group details for EPCOT's new "Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind" opening May 27 2022 at Walt Disney World.

As expected, the Cosmic Rewind virtual queue will first open at 7am, and again at 1pm. You will not need to be in the park at 7am to join the queue, but will need to be in EPCOT to join the queue at 1pm.

Cosmic Rewind will also make use of Virtual Queue during Extended Evening Hours, opening at 6pm, but you do not need to be inside the park to join the queue.

Guests will be able to join the Virtual Queue during regular hours, and again during Extended Evening Hours if staying at an eligible resort hotel for a total of two Virtual Queue rides in a single day.

Visit our "Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind" FAQ for more answers to common questions.

Full details of Cosmic Rewind's Virtual Queue are below.

How to enter the Cosmic Rewind Virtual Queue

Beginning at 7 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 leave your Resort hotel or on your way to the park.

At 1 p.m., there will be another opportunity to join the virtual queue for anyone who wasn’t able to join a boarding group earlier in the day. Keep in mind, guests must be inside EPCOT to access this second virtual queue opportunity.

In order to give as many guests as possible the opportunity to save the galaxy, each guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day during regular park hours. Please note that joining the virtual queue does not guarantee the ability to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

Virtual Queue during EPCOT 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 6pm on select dates during extended evening theme park hours. 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 — or, guests may 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. For more information about this benefit, visit the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours page.

How to purchase individual Lightning Lane entry

Guests with valid park admission and a park reservation can purchase individual Lightning Lane entry in the My Disney Experience app via the Disney Genie service on the same day of their visit, subject to availability. Pricing is still to be announced.

Virtual queue and individual Lightning Lane entry are only accessible via the My Disney Experience app.

You do not have to be in the park for the 6pm Virtual Queue. "An additional opportunity to request to join the virtual queue will be available at 6:00 PM on select dates during extended evening theme park hours, a benefit for registered Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort or other select hotels.

I was wrong, I got group 61! Quick question and I apologize if it has been asked before. We are eligible for the extended evening hours tonight. Do you have to be in the park at 6 pm when the virtual queue opens for that?

vikescaper2 days ago

Got group 65 for today! I freaked out momentarily as the app decided to refresh again after I tapped refresh.
