Yup, Disney really doesn't want you standing in ques which is why I see more and more virtual ques coming in the future. They want you walking around eating somewhere or in the shops.I actually don't mind it. I tried for the queue 3 times now on 2 separate trips and got it all 3. With a regular queue I'd potentially be standing in line for hours. With the virtual queue I'm in line for a fraction of the time which allows me to do other things rather than sitting my butt in a long line.
RotR was VQ from day 1. At one time you had to be tapped into the park before requesting a VQ.I could only image the complete chaos there would be at Rope Drop people running (like they did in the past) to get to ROTR. We have 3 days in HS hoping to get ROTR on one of those days which we did yesterday. I know it's very frustrating to not be able to ride the ride on the day you are on the park.
I had a BWV stay in December 2019 and was able to ride a couple of times.RotR was VQ from day 1. At one time you had to be tapped into the park before requesting a VQ.
