Ever since Disney World debuted a virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance, they have tweaked the process for securing a boarding pass. We’ve shared a lot of tricks to reliably securing a spot in the virtual queue, and familiarity with the system is only getting more important as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is debuting at Epcot with the same virtual queue system. Disney just added a new way to save a ton of time while trying to join a virtual queue at Disney World. While this might seem minor, this could be the difference between getting a spot on the ride or missing out entirely, as the virtual queue can fill up within seconds on busy days.

Within the MyDisneyExperience app, you can now confirm your party up to 1 hour before the virtual queue opens up. You can do this by going to the menu in the app (bottom right button with three lines), tapping “Virtual Queues,” clicking “Join Virtual Queue,” then clicking “Confirm Your Party.” You can select all of the guests linked to your account that you will be securing a boarding group for. This will make it easier to join the virtual queue with the correct group selected, and you can avoid having to waste precious seconds by deselecting a guest who isn’t eligible. If you’ve linked your Disney World account to a lot of different family members and friends like I have, this will make a big difference.

It should be noted that while the ability to confirm your party opens up 1 hour before the virtual queue opens (so starting at 6 am for the 7 am queues at Disney World), you don’t have to get up at 6 am to confirm you party. You have all the way up until the virtual queue opens up to confirm your party, so you can wait until 5 minutes before to confirm.
