Boarding Groups full for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance earlier than expected

Dec 08, 2019 in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

Boarding groups for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance again reached capacity before the official park opening today.

Disney had been notifying guests via social media that boarding groups would open alongside the official park opening of 8am today, but they actually opened around 7:15am, and quickly reached capacity by 7:40am.

The park opened today for Extra Magic Hour guests at 6am, although Rise of the Resistance was not operating.

The girlfriend and I head down tomorrow for a glorious 10 day stay. We have four park passes for Studios right now, although we may only do it three times. We'll definitely be there Sunday. BG1 or bust.

Good to know. CM's at the ride's entrance, weren't very reassuring to people asking about the delay. I didn't plan on riding today to begin with, but many looked understandably disappointed.

It’s pretty much a 95% chance that you will be called if you didn’t get the notification of doom that your BG won’t be called. Just the other day, they cycled through nearly 20+ BGs after 7pm-8pm after the ride was down for 3 hours. It seems like they’ll honor those groups they didn’t reject initially.

Thank you! 😅 Left a while ago, figured my group wasn't going to be called anymore. Oh well, a glass of wine and a cheese plate at Riviera were calling my name, so no complaints here. 😉

Crowds have finally diminished enough that cast members can now get into the Studios.
