Disney World's Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Virtual Queue reaches capacity just seconds after opening

The Virtual Queue for EPCOT's Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind reached capacity after just 3 seconds on its first day of operation.

1pm. UPDATE: The second release of Virtual Queue at 1pm also reached capacity almost instantly.

Disney decided not to offer a traditional standby line for the new rollercoaster and instead chose to use a Virtual Queue to control entry into the line, along with an Individual Attraction Purchase to access the ride via the Lightning Lane.

The Virtual Queue reaching capacity within seconds does not come as a surprise, as a similar situation occurred with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure.

With the Virtual Queue reaching capacity, the only remaining option is the Individual Attraction Lightning Lane purchase, currently priced at $17 per person. As of writing, the Lightning Lane is currently available but will likely sell out soon.

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.
