They have said on the twitter announcement in the replies that there is no express pass at this time and will not give a time of when it will have.

Glad theres no express pass to be honest. Id envisage every man and his dog using the free passes, or buying them, and the main queue would take forever.

Im part of a Facebook group where the admins are pretty clued up on universal. The way it sounds from their explanation is that the virtual queue is to stop lines being FOP busy where theyre queued far away from the attraction. Essentially when you get your slot youll have to come back and at that point start waiting in a proper queue - which could be a few hours long...

Oh that sounds horrible, but makes sense

Does anyone have any thoughts how the Virtual Queue will work with FOLP (I assume these will not work) and Parent Swap? We will be a family of 5, 4 of whom will want to ride but youngest DD almost certainly not!

This is good news! We will be traveling with a 23 month old and his grandparents and didn't want to have to leave him with them for hours whilst we queued for this... if we have an allocated time to come back to ride that will be great! (We will also have express passes but from what I read above it won't have an express pass queue)

Wasn't a fan of the virtual queue when we went last year...
We arrived at US late afternoon and wanted to ride Jimmy Fallon. Were told by the staff outside to go to the machines to get a return time, yet the machines said all remaining return times were taken the for day...
We asked the staff if we could join the standby queue and they told us they were only doing virtual queue for the rest of the day.

In the 10-15 minutes we were around the attraction, approximately 5 people went into the ride, meaning a bunch of people had obviously booked virtual queue times then just not bothered to show up for them, yet they wouldn't let others into the ride!

If they're going to use this for Hagrid I really hope they get a more efficient system than that!
