Ratatouille virtual queue

Art Vandelay

that's a shame
Just curious...to join the virtual queue, you need an Epcot reservation; if for some reason, the virtual queue is full when you try to get it at 7 AM, can you then change your park reservation (obviously, based upon availability) and go to a different park?

FWIW, I was just there on Monday - first time riding Ratatouille. Did Boo Bash the night before, so we slept in and I didn't even try at 7 a.m. Tried at 1:00 and got a boarding group easily. Even with the ride going down for a bit, our group was called about 6:00.

I'll also note for timing purposes, though, that once they called our group we waited about 45 minutes in the lengthy queue (mostly outdoor switchbacks) before boarding the ride. That line did move almost constantly, though, which helps.

he's right
There will be a standby line as of next week right?
Not necessarily. At least, I haven't seen an announcement.

BGs have been available into the hopping window on some days, and if you are in the park while they are still available you can get one. You can also buy your way on if you really want to.

It will be interesting to see what Disney does with standby, lighting lane, a la carte lightning lane, virtual queues, wait time manipulation, and all of this. It's definitely going to be a * next to those wait times in a few days when the Genie comes online. But at least it looks like things will begin to normalize. It's kind of been the pits to say "welllll...I don't really know" about a particular situation when I could tell you the wait time or arrival procedure with some pretty specific clarity for years, and now there are like 90 different scenarios. We'll sort it all out on one or another.

Looking forward to it!

Has Disney said anything about what happens to Remy starting 10/19? Will it stay VQ or go standby? Seems odd to be both ILL and VQ. At 7AM do you try for VQ and if not get it try ILL? Do we think both will sell out immediately at 7? Will there still be a second drop at 1PM?

My daughter has a trip from 10/19-10/26 and trying to plan with all of the G+ and ILL uncertainty is killing me.
