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

Following the same pattern as the regular 7am and 1pm Virtual Queue distribution, boarding groups for the 6pm Extended Evening Hours queue were taken almost instantly.

The Extended Evening theme park hours nights at EPCOT are available to guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, and The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin.

On Extended Evening hours days, eligible guests can use the Virtual Queue twice, once during the 7am or 1pm distribution and again at the 6pm distribution. In addition, purchasing a Lightning Lane entry would allow for a maximum of 3 Cosmic Rewind rides in a day.

To join the 6pm Virtual Queue, you do not need to be inside EPCOT. Learn more about Cosmic Rewind's Virtual Queue.

Extended Evening Hours take place for 2 hours immediately following regular park close, which is typically 9pm to 11pm at EPCOT.

Upcoming Extended Evening Hours at EPCOT are planned for June 6, June 13, June 20, June 27, July 4, July 11, July 18, July 25 2022.

You can view the schedule on our Disney World operating hours calendar.

That data is pulled real time, so I posted at 9:20am and it only showed up to 9:20am. The Individual Lightning Lane became unavailable around 11:55am today.

Why so quick today? It looks like MK was packed too, is this just residual crowds from the Hurricane that want to get in the parks?

1pm drop lasted for 2759.666 secs, or ~46 mins. Monday 1pm Drop Average: 55m -> 55m (+0) Up to BG 91 called at 1pm, 12 more than yesterday. I believe this is the highest BG called at the afternoon drop.

The grey area means no Individual Lightning Lane availability, so on 10/02/22, it was available until around 5:30pm. The quickest it has become unavailable in the last 30 days was around 10:30am on 09/26/22.
