Update on Rise of the Resistance boarding groups including changes to return window

Jan 27, 2020 in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

This past weekend saw an adjustment to the board group return window for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Previously, once a boarding group was called, there would be a two hour return window. That has now been changed in some cases to a one hour return window. It is worth paying close attention to the notification that you receive from My Disney Experience to ensure you do not miss your boarding group.

Boarding Groups continue to be in high demand, with the standard boarding groups typically gone within a minute of the posted park opening, and backup groups reaching capacity within 45 minutes of park opening. Best advice continues to be to plan to be through the turnstiles 30 minutes prior to park opening, and immediately access My Disney Experience at the posted park opening time to secure a group. As always, you can stay up to date on the latest including reports each morning and throughout the day in our forums.

Interestingly, Disney appears to be evaluating the situation, and has been surveying guests to see if they prefer virtual queues, FastPass+ and a standby line, or standby only. This may not only impact Rise of the Resistance, but the upcoming Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway.
