Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Virtual Queue and Lightning Lane signs
Posted: Friday May 27, 2022 7:20am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The $17 Lighting Lane access at EPCOT's new Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind sold out by 7:20am on opening day.

Most guests' first attempt to secure a ride on Cosmic Rewind was via the free Virtual Queue, which reached capacity almost instantly at its 7am opening.

Return times for the Lightning Lane purchase varied wildly during the 20 minutes that they were available, form very late into the night, through to early morning. Each refresh of the screen appeared to show different results.

The next opportunity for guests to secure a ride will be at the 1pm Virtual Queue opening.

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.
