How to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the hottest ride at Walt Disney World at the moment. The initial reactions is that it may even dethrone Rise of the Resistance as the best ride on property. 

So, the real question is how do you guarantee you get to ride it on your next trip to Walt Disney World. 

There are currently 2 options; Virtual Queue or Individual Lightning Lane. Hint: You could actually ride twice if you use both options in one day!

See below for Virtual Queue details straight from Disney:

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Virtual Queue


A virtual queue is in place at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Guests will need to use the My Disney Experience app to enter the attraction. A standby queue will not be available. Each Guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day during regular park hours.

Guests must have valid admission and a theme park reservation to join the virtual queue. There will be 2 daily opportunities to request to join the virtual queue for the ride:

  • 7:00 AM (Guests do not need to be in the park when they join, but must have a theme park reservation for EPCOT)
  • 1:00 PM (Guests must be in EPCOT to join the virtual queue at this time)

Extended Evening Theme Park Hours
An additional opportunity to request to join the virtual queue will be available at 6:00 PM on select dates during extended evening theme park hours, a benefit for registered Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort or other select hotels. Guests with this benefit do not need to be in EPCOT to request to join at that time.

Individual Lighting Lane Option – Pay to Ride

The other option is to buy an individual Lightning Lane pass for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. These also go on sale at 7am and allow you to select and pay for a time throughout the day. It looks like this will cost around $15 per rider and only one can be purchased per day. 

No matter which way you go with getting to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, just be sure to be online early for either the virtual queue or lightning lane because these will go fast!
