Star Wars Rise of the Resistance in-park boarding groups distribution time to be adjusted

Dec 15, 2020 in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

Virtual queue boarding group distribution will begin at a new time for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance from next week.

The changes to timing will begin Sunday December 20 2020, and as before, the first distribution of the day will begin prior to park opening at 7am via My Disney Experience. The second distribution will move from 2pm to 1pm.

Here is how the new process works from December 20 2020.

  • Guests with a valid ticket or annual pass and a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to access the virtual queue system and check for an available boarding group starting at 7am on the day of their park reservation. This can be done before you leave your Disney resort hotel, or wherever else nearby you might be at that time.

  • The virtual queue will reopen daily at 1pm for anyone who wasn’t already able to join a boarding group earlier in the day. Note: Guests must be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios to access this second virtual queue opportunity, and access to a boarding group is subject to availability and not guaranteed.

What threw me off was Join-Join. Well, I’ll try again at 1.

BG 165 was the last group of the night, called at 6:30pm. There was only 1 recorded downtime today, which occurred around 2:24pm and lasted until 3:18pm. (waited quite a while to post this to see if @DCBaker would post his nightly news for us ;))

Looks like the Now Boarding Group status should be back today -

It’s always there, you have to use an accurate clock to determine when it’s 7 am. You dont need to refresh the page.

Thanks for this. My only question is when you are on step 6 does the blue button automatically appear at 7AM on its own or do you need to keep refreshing for the button to appear? Thanks

How I got boarding group 12 twice last month: 1. Have a strong data signal 2. Have another time piece to track the seconds exactly 3. I still turned my phone off and on 5 minutes before 4. When booted back up I opened the app, clicked on the join button. 5. On the next page I clicked on the blue “My queues” in the upper right to get to this page: 6. At exactly 7am and not before, click the blue button 7. On the next page all members of your party with park reservations will be automatically checked, so as quickly as possible click the Join button and await the arrival of the Astromech and what group you got. You have approximately 8 seconds, good luck.
