Disney began using virtual queues for Rise of the Resistance. It was a learning curve for both Disney and Disney Guests as kinks were worked out, but now they are relatively easy to use. Since then, Disney has also used virtual queues for rides like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Cosmic Rewind along with special characters like Santa.

What is a virtual queue? Essentially, the virtual queue is a lottery-type system that gives you a boarding group. Once you enter the queue and successfully obtain your boarding group, you go about your day as normal until your boarding group is called. This can be done through the Disney World and Disneyland apps for any rides that require it.

Currently the only virtual queues in place are for Cosmic Rewind and TRON. However, that will temporarily change…

May the 4th is just a few days away! Disney will be celebrating with specialty snacks and merchandise. The merchandise is always hugely popular, and Disney World will use a virtual queue.

On May 4, special merchandise will be on sale at Stage 1 Company Store in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A standby line will not be available, so you must join the queue to buy the merchandise!

Additionally, you will not be able to join the queue more than once that day. Like other virtual queues, it will open at 7:00 am.
