Today Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind officially opens. Check out the new time you will want to know about when purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for this attraction.
Opening of Cosmic Rewind
Who is ready to “Save the Galaxy”? Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is officially opened. Disney’s newest attraction at Epcot actually takes us back in time and across the cosmos to save the galaxy! This family-friendly (yet thrilling!) coaster is not found at any other theme park in the entire world! Plus, it is also the first-ever reverse launch coaster at Disney.
This is unlike any other attraction. You can absolutely see why Cosmic Rewind will be the headliner at Epcot. The attraction will be in high demand for several months – much like Rise of the Resistance at Hollywood Studios. And just like Rise of the Resistance, Disney has a plan to manage crowds and keep waiting to a minimum.
Yesterday, Disney released prices for Individual Lightning Lane and although Disney fans were shocked, these Individual Lightning Lanes were purchased within seconds. Now we have great news for guests hoping to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for this attraction.
Individual Lighting Lane
As a quick reminder about how Individual Lightning Lane Selections (ILLS) work: you can select up to two headliner attractions per day in any park. They are not included in the $15 Genie service but are based on a la carte options.
Disney Resort Guests may purchase Individual Lightning Lanes at 7:00 am. This morning many guests shared that they were on the My Disney Experience app ready to purchase their Individual Lighting Lane, but due to glitches with the app, they were unable to purchase them in time.
Now a new trick will allow guests another time to purchase the Individual Lightning Lanes. This morning Scott Gustin shared this tip. “If you’re trying for Cosmic Rewind Individual Lightning Lane this weekend: If you fail at 7 am, keep trying until at least 7:12 am. 7:12 am is the purchase timeout for people who changed their mind or received an error during checkout.”
That goes back to the old motto, “If first, you don’t succeed, try, try again!” If you keep trying until 7:12 am, you may be able to grab an Individual Lighting Lane. This is great news for guests hoping to ride this attraction this weekend.
