PHOTOS - Virtual queue boarding groups in use again today at Star Wars Rise of the Resistance

Dec 06, 2019 in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

Disney's Hollywood Studios is again using boarding groups today for guests wanting to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Like yesterday, the park opened early, and boarding groups were being admitted to the attraction at around 6:30am. Yesterday, boarding groups were full at around 8:30am, and later groups were not admitted into the attraction last night. Those guests received a 1 day park hopper.

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.

Last night, they were very firm about 125, and would not let me wait all the way back by muppets with the 126. So, my other half took the kids on smugglers run. When they called 125-140, kids were not back, yet. I also assumed to get rid of the crowd they would skip the pre-shows. Unfortunately, the restart of the ride and 45+ minutes of queue would have made us miss a birthday celebration for my sister at Topolino's. Maybe next time. On the positive, we did get to experience the ride once this trip. I really enjoyed our time in the cantina. The kids like the shooting - scoring part of smugglers run. Best of luck in the boarding group lottery.

Hello, I am new to the virtual queue, and do you need to be in the app before 7 or 1 to get a boarding pass? Please advice.
