Early openings continue for Disney's Hollywood Studios and changes made to Boarding Group process

Dec 09, 2019 in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

Disney is continuing with its plan of surprise early openings at Disney's Hollywood Studios, with the park opening around 6:30am this morning instead of the official posted opening time of 8am.

Guests have been able to join boarding groups to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance since opening, and the attraction began operations around 7:15am.

Changes have been made to the virtual queue process. The system will now limit each guest to joining a single Boarding Group per day with the aim of allowing more guests to experience Rise of the Resistance.

Boarding Groups reached capacity at 8:30am today, which is the latest there has been availability since the attraction opened on December 5.

Thank you! DC Baker for running these numbers for us each morning/afternoon/evening. Thank you! Everyone for your expertise, ideas and support. I am so happy. Our first ride on our first try! And I did not have to drag teenagers to rope-drop with the new system. And I accomplished this feat with a Blackberry (using running MDE on Android OS)

I jinxed it, ride went down right after I said this from 1:55-2:30pm......BG 170 might not be called anymore :(

Interesting. If there are no downtime’s today (or 1 really small one), 170 should be called. So far flawless run today.

And now she is hooked for life. Well played Disney, well played, giving the brand new guest a taste.

If you are curious about the time, I waited until 3 1/2 minutes in and was still given a group of 170.
