If there’s one ride we want to get on when we’re in Hollywood Studios, it’s Rise of the Resistance.
Rise of the Resistance has been crazy popular since it first opened, and that hasn’t changed in the reopened Disney parks. If you’re hoping for a trip to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to take a spin on this immersive ride, you’ll need to nab a spot in the virtual queue. Now, Disney is CHANGING the times that boarding groups are released! Learn when you can get them!
Prior to the park closures, the only way to get a boarding group in the virtual queue was to be in Hollywood Studios RIGHT when the boarding groups went live at park opening. With the reopening of the parks, the virtual queue shifted to having more than one distribution time — the queue goes live at 10AM, 1PM, and 4PM.
Starting July 24th, Disney is changing the distribution times to 10AM and 2PM. Guests will only be able to join the queue at those times. We’ve noticed that even with multiple distribution windows, spots in the queue have been going in under a minute.
The update came with a response to some guests’ frustration about the virtual queue filling so quickly in each distribution window. The statement explains that due to the added physical distancing measures in the park, Rise of the Resistance cannot accommodate as many guests as it could before the closures.
Remember, to join the virtual queue you will need to be in Hollywood Studios (with valid admission and a Disney Park Pass reservation) and you will need to use the My Disney Experience app. For more information on joining the queue, click here.
We’ll be sure to report in on if this change makes it any easier or harder to get a spot in the virtual queue. Stay tuned to DFB for the latest updates!
