Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens for Cast Member previews without virtual queues

Disney's Hollywood Studios has reopened today for Cast Member previews and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is operating without using virtual queue boarding groups.

As of 10:15am, 15 minutes after park opening, Rise of the Resistance was at a 15 minute standby wait time. Although virtual queues are not being used, riders are limited to one ride per day.

It was expected that virtual queues would not be used at any location for Walt Disney World's reopening, but Disney announced over the weekend that it would in-fact be using virtual queues for Rise of the Resistance, but with modifications.

When the park reopens for guests on July 15, guests will have an opportunity at 10am, 1pm or 4pm to request to join the virtual queue. This means there is no need to arrive early to the park to check the virtual queue. Backup groups will be made available as before, and each guest will be limited to one boarding pass per day.

My Disney Experience will be used to join the virtual queue.

Entered queue at 7, 40 mins to the first preshow. About an hour for the full ride. Loved it tonight but let’s see what happens with more crowds + LL. For now, take that @KevinPage ! 😜

At the park and ride is down. Some things never change! 😁

Do we know if they're using the RFID cards (at this ride or anything else right now)?

75 now. But this is also a "slow" period.

I was actually wondering if they would argue that the posted wait time is until you get onto the ride vehicle (i.e. not counting the pre shows including the shuttle).

Posted wait is now one hour. Ain't nobody gonna pay to skip that.

"Temporarily Closed."

So few people are going to pay a la carte that I don't think it'll change very much. I'm predicting that Genie+ itself will be a huge success and that the Individual Attraction Selections will be a giant flop.
