Disney has announced that when new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opens later this month it will be using a virtual queue only, with standby not available. Guests can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day, and boarding groups for a virtual queue are limited, subject to availability, and are not guaranteed. 

Guests may also purchase individual Genie+ Lightning Lane entry for this attraction when it opens, but pricing has not yet been announced. 

6. KiteTails to transition to full-day experience May 27

Though the KiteTails show is performed several times throughout the day right now, Disney is transitioning this sit-down show into a full-day experience so guests will be able to see the high-flying kites from anywhere around the Discovery River Lagoon, with shorter and more frequent performances throughout the day. Unfortunately, since this won't be a sit-down show anymore, the ground performers in the show inside the theater will no longer be a part of the show. The last day you can see Disney KiteTails in its current form is May 26, as after that the show will be in its new format. 

7. Canada Far and Wide to close briefly for unknown reason

Canada Far and Wide at EPCOT will be closed beginning June 27 for an undetermined period for undisclosed reasons. This may be due to the upcoming EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, which kicks off July 14 and has previously hosted kiosks in this space, but nothing has been explicitly confirmed by the park regarding this World Showcase closure just yet.
