Opening Day at Star Wars Rise of the Resistance

Disney has deployed its virtual queue boarding groups for today's opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Parking opened at around 4:30am, with guests quickly forming lines inside the park to travel to Batuu.

The first boarding groups entered the attraction at around 6:30am, and at the same time guests just arriving at the park were seeing boarding group estimates of "afternoon."

Using Boarding Groups

The first step is to make sure you download the My Disney Experience app if you don’t already have it. Once you enter the park, open the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge section and go to “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – Access by Boarding Group.” Click on “Find Out More.” The next screen will share the current boarding status of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. If boarding groups are available, you may be able to tap “Join Boarding Group.” There will also be a display indicating which boarding group may now enter the attraction.

Additional information about virtual queue:

  • You must physically be inside the park to join a boarding group. 
  • If “Join a Boarding Group” is grayed out, that means the boarding groups are full for the day and are no longer available.
  • As long as your My Disney Experience account is linked to park tickets for you and the others in your group, you’ll be able to enroll everyone in the virtual queue at the same time.
  • Make sure push notifications are turned on for My Disney Experience so you will be alerted if your boarding group is called to return. 
  • You’ll have up to two hours from the time of the alert to go to the entrance of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, so there’s no need to rush right over.  
  • Please note that joining a boarding group does not guarantee the ability to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
