Virtual Queue and Individual Lightning Lane Fill Up Within Minutes of Launch for Opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT

With today marking the official opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT, reservations for the virtual queue and Individual Lightning Lane reservations were unsurprisingly sold out within minutes of opening.

As we previously reported, the first round of the virtual queue opened up as expected at 7 a.m. The second round is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Prior to the queue opening, guests using the My Disney Experience app could read up about the brand-new attraction.

Our reporters were issued a boarding group. The reservation page features artwork of the Guardians’ ship, the Milano, flying through space.

When we checked back for our wait time, we were met with a unique message for the attraction: “Attention Terrans… traveling thru jump points isn’t always easy.”

Meanwhile, guests who wanted to purchase Individual Lightning Lane access were met with technical difficulties.

We attempted to purchase for a party of five, but the app had issues as we tried to confirm our selection.

The typical “Something Went Wrong” message appeared when we clicked “Continue,” as the timeslot we selected sold out before we confirmed. Lightning Lane reservations sold out within minutes of becoming available.

Eventually, we were able to book it successfully. Interestingly, guests can join the virtual queue and purchase an Individual Lightning Lane reservation for the attraction, allowing for two rides on the attraction during the day.

  1. If you want to join the virtual queue at 1:00, and you have paid for a lightning lane that doesn’t happen until sometime after 1:00, can you still join the virtual queue? Similarly, can some members of your party buy the lightning lane at 7:00 while others try to get in the virtual queue? This is all to ensure that we could ride twice in one day! Thanks so much!
