Disney makes securing a boarding group for Star Wars Rise of the Resistance much more convenient

25 days ago in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

Disney's Hollywood Studios will be introducing a new Virtual Queue process for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance beginning November 3 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 2pm 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.

Disney says that it is hoping this new approach will make a day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios more enjoyable and relaxing, as guests no longer need to be inside the park each morning to request a boarding group for the first virtual queue opportunity.

The existing process sees most guests racing to enter the park and glued to their phones from 9:15am to 10am awaiting the 10 second window to open at 10am to secure a reservation. The process if often followed by audible cheers or groans depending on the outcome.

Rode for the first time today. Holy cow, what an amazing attraction. Thanks to this board for all of the hints and tricks - I was able to get BG 27 and was called right at 11. I didn't realize how fortunate I was until I talked to 4 other families in line for other rides who all missed out. Thanks to all!

It does/should automatically select people - however, there have been a few reports here or there that not everyone in their party was selected.

With the new 7am boarding group sign up, do you have to select your party or does it automatically select people that have a reservation at DHS?

I had a dream last night that I was at Disneyland. I didn't get much further then Main Street before I woke up, but my first thought after waking up was "damn, I didn't get a boarding group!"
