sometimes it takes a combination of The Force and a lot of luck to be able to join the virtual queue that will enable you to help save the galaxy and. you’ve probably also experienced the agony of defeat when your internet connection has been a millisecond too slow, and you’ve missed out on your chance yet again to ride Walt Disney World’s most popular attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Disney is in the business of making magic and with their new pilot program, getting your coveted boarding pass just got a little bit easier. So just how do you obtain a Star Wars: Rise Of The Resistance Boarding Pass?
It’s clear the Force is strong with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Since its debut last year, this spectacular experience inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has proven to be one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort.
Now Disney is once again reimagining and it’s out with the old and in with the new to all visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios plan ahead for their day at the park. Beginning Nov. 3, Hollywood Studios will be piloting a new approach to the virtual queue system for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Here is how it will work:
- 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 7 a.m. 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.
- Just as we do today, the virtual queue will reopen daily at 2 p.m. 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.
This new approach will make a day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios more enjoyable and relaxing, and the best part is that you will no longer need to be inside the park each morning to request a boarding group for the first virtual queue opportunity. But just as a reminder, you will still need to be inside the park to request the 2 p.m. boarding groups.
To try to maximize the number of boarding groups that they are able to accommodate while adhering to current health and safety guidelines, Disney has recently added a clear barrier between the two rows of seats on each First Order Fleet Transport vehicle inside the attraction. This enables more guests to board Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance each day.
The attraction’s virtual queue is only accessible via the My Disney Experience mobile app. To maximize your opportunity to secure a boarding group, here are some tips we recommend you check off your list prior to your day at the park:
- Register an account in My Disney Experience
- Download the My Disney Experience mobile app on your smart device or ensure you’re using the most updated version of the app before you arrive at the park.
- Link and assign all park tickets in your party to a My Disney Experience account
- Have a valid Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the day you’re visiting
- Select one member of your party to access the virtual queue for everyone in your group; if multiple people in your party try to join the virtual queue simultaneously, that may complicate your ability to secure a boarding group
- Remember, virtual queue boarding groups are limited and subject to availability
This new pilot approach to the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance virtual queue is designed to give guests the best possible experience during a day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It looks like your trip to a galaxy far, far away just got easier. Have you experienced Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance?
