Who’s ready to rock with the Guardians of the Galaxy?
Now that we’re getting closer and closer to the opening of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction at EPCOT, we’ve been getting a lot of details about the ride’s queue, loading area, vehicles, and even gift shop! But today, Disney announced one more IMPORTANT detail about the ride and how guests will be able to bypass what is sure to be long standby lines.
Disney World has announced that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be part of Disney Genie’s Individual Attraction Selection. According to Disney, you will either need to pay to ride through Genie+ in the My Disney Experience app or you can join a virtual queue.
Pay Per Ride otherwise known as Individual Attraction Selection through Genie+ works like this: if you’re a guest at a Disney-owned hotel, you can access the ride via Disney Genie at or after 7AM on the day of your EPCOT visit and buy Lightning Lane access for the ride.
If you’re not staying at a Disney World hotel, you’ll have to wait until the park opens to be able to buy Lightning Lane access. Note that either way, you must have a park pass reservation at EPCOT for that day. You’ll be able to choose a specific window of time to visit the ride.
Once your time window becomes available, you can head to the ride and scan your ticket, MagicBand, or phone at the Lightning Lane queue entrance, and you’re in!
Pricing for Cosmic Rewind is not yet known; currently, the highest priced attraction in Disney World is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, at $15 per person, per ride (plus tax).
Disney also shared that guests will be able to join a Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind virtual queue and that for the time being, there will be NO standby line.
We’ll let you know about any other details we learn about the ride, so stay tuned to DFB for more!
