How Disney's virtual queue works during after hours events

Walt Disney World® Resort's newest attraction, TRON Lightcycle / Run, operates on Disney's virtual queue. The attraction is scheduled to be opened during Magic Kingdom® Park's after-hours parties, and a spot in the virtual queue will be required for those attending the party. Fortunately, limited party attendance makes obtaining a virtual queue position easier than ever.

An opportunity to request to join the virtual queue will be available at 6 p.m. on party nights exclusively for guests attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. A standby queue will not be available during these events for TRON Lightcycle / Run, and guests may only enter the virtual queue once per event.

It is currently not known if guests will need to be inside the park for the 6 p.m.queue to function. Parties get guests park entrance at 4 p.m., before the event starts, and we already recommend guests get there early to enjoy as much of the park and the event as possible.

A few minutes prior to 6 p.m., log on to the Disney World mobile app—we generally recommend around 5 minutes so as not to miss the pass opening time slot—and scroll down the home screen to where it indicates you can request access to virtual queues. You can select all of your riding party—anyone with a party ticket that day is selectable—before the booking window opens.

Wait there once you have selected your party, as a refresh button at the bottom of the screen will be grayed out until the clock strikes six. As soon as it does, the button will turn blue, and you can either click that or drag your screen downward to refresh the page and make the button for selecting the virtual queue appear.

Simply click that button, and your pre-selected party will be awarded a spot in the virtual queue, should there be any remaining. Once the clock hits six, the whole process should only take a few seconds. Though you may see a dozen or more tricks around the internet, it ultimately comes down to timing: the fastest guests will get spots in the virtual queue first. We do recommend turning wifi off and going to cellular data just for the sake of guaranteed quickness, as well as only having one guest in the party attempt to get a pass for everyone over multiple people in the party attempting at once. Otherwise, you simply have to be prepared and be quick.
