The key to unlocking a preview experience lies in the My Disney Experience app’s virtual queue system. This system opens for Passholders twice daily:

  • 7:00 AM: This slot is exclusive to Passholders with a Magic Kingdom park reservation.
  • 1:00 PM: Here’s your golden ticket! This queue is open to Passholders with a park reservation for ANY Disney World theme park on the preview day.

Secure a park reservation for another Disney World theme park (Epcot, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom) on your chosen preview day at Magic Kingdom. The beauty? You don’t even need to enter the park you reserved for! However, having no reservation at all disqualifies you from the virtual queue.

Join the Queue at 1:00 PM Sharp:

  • Open the My Disney Experience app and navigate to the “Virtual Queues” section.
  • Double-check your party information.
  • Be ready! At precisely 1:00 PM, tap “Refresh” followed immediately by “Join Queue” (both buttons are in the same location). Avoid the slow pull-to-refresh method.

Heading to Magic Kingdom:

  • Typically, you’ll need to enter the park you made a reservation for before visiting Magic Kingdom.
  • But here’s a perk! Weekdays (June 13, 14, 17, 18, and 20) allow entry to Magic Kingdom after 2:00 PM without visiting another park first. On the weekend preview (June 16th), entering your reserved park before park-hopping to Magic Kingdom is mandatory.

The Virtual Queue Wait:

  • You’ll receive an in-app notification when it’s your turn to ride.
  • Be prompt! The notification comes with a specific window to arrive at the attraction.

A few Tips for Sucess:

  • Plan Ahead: Secure your park reservation for another park ASAP. These fill up fast, especially during previews.
  • Ensure your My Disney Experience app is updated and you’re logged in well before 1:00 PM.
  • Prepare to join the queue at 1:00 PM sharp. Start a few minutes early and consider using another device for precise timing.
  • Reservations are Not Guaranteed: Remember, the virtual queue doesn’t guarantee a ride. Boarding groups are limited, and not all may be called back.
