Low Crowd Alert: ‘Guardians’ Virtual Queue Availability Rockets this Week’s Expectations
With the Spring Break crowds back home, Walt Disney World Resort wait times continue to prove that this week stands out as one of the best to visit for low crowds. Today, even “Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind” highlighted the significant decrease in visitors thanks to its virtual queue availability.
Typically, the virtual queue for EPCOT’s newest attraction fills up in minutes if not seconds. It opens for all guests with a valid park reservation each morning at 7 a.m. On a busy day, the queue fills up within those first ten seconds.
Today, however, MickeyBlogger Jared actually snagged a spot significantly later than that. At 7:37 a.m., the virutal queue for the exciting thrill ride still had space.
Not only was he able to secure a spot, the projected return time put him right around 5 p.m. Typically, boarding groups are called even faster than that projected time making his projected time even more ideal.
For those unable to join the queue in the morning, EPCOT also offers a second opportunity for guests with valid park admission to join the “Cosmic Rewind” virtual queue at 1 p.m.
As of 1:30 p.m. this afternoon, that virtual queue selection also remained open for guests. Like the 7 a.m. virtual queue, the afternoon slots also tend to fill quickly, so EPCOT visitors got quite a special treat today.
As of right now, the boarding groups assigned have about a 320-minute wait time. With a time like that, guests will be able to ride the attraction well before the evening activities really get going in World Showcase, where people tend to spend the later hours at the innovative theme park.

Much to our surprise, even Tron Lightcycle/Run, the brand-new coaster at Magic Kingdom, also still had virtual queue availability at 1:40 p.m. this afternoon.
These two attractions certainly prove that those hoping for lower crowds should put this week (and potentially next week) on their list of must-visit times, as they have long been advertised to be a sweet spot between Spring Break and the summer crowds.
