The Virtual Queue for EPCOT's new "Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind" is now visible in My Disney Experience ahead of the May 27 official opening.

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. It is likely that the Virtual Queue will reach capacity within seconds of opening.

Cosmic Rewind will also offer an Individual Purchase for Lightning Lane access, with pricing still to be announced. 

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.

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.
