The ride opened in December 2019, and since then it’s used a virtual queue to admit guests. Using the My Disney Experience app, guests can try and reserve a spot starting at 7AM on the day of their visit. These spots are usually gone by 7:01AM, but today there were still available spots WAY later!
Right now, Disney World’s most popular ride is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance!
The newer Star Wars attraction is located in Galaxy’s Edge and is so popular that Disney uses a boarding group system to load guests. It can be pretty difficult to snag a boarding group when the parks are busy, and now the process has changed again!
If you’ve planned a magical vacation that you’ve been waiting months for, the last thing you want to do is get kicked out of the parks!
There are a lot of ways to break the rules in Disney World and Cast Members have seen a wide variety of “creative” ways that guests try to push the limits. But recently, there have been some new policies and procedures put in place at Disney World — meaning that there are 4 NEW ways you could get kicked out of the parks!
Another week has gone by and we’ve gotten some MASSIVE updates that could impact your next Disney trip.
Have you been wondering when/if Club Cool would be coming back to EPCOT? Curious when face mask rules in Central Florida might change? Heard about the BIG Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group update yet? We’ve got ALL the Disney news you need to know right here!
It’s no secret that the DFB team LOVES Disney World!
Many of our team members visit Disney World frequently. Some of us visit once or twice a year while others head to the theme parks daily. What can we say? We can’t get enough of Mickey, churros, and rides on Space Mountain! Collectively, we have done practically EVERYTHING at Disney World. However, we polled the team to see what attractions and experiences are often overlooked or we’ve never had the chance to experience. Here are the results!
We started our new year off with some AMAZING Disney news — Park Hopping officially returned to Disney World on January 1st, 2021!
We know there are a LOT of questions about this big change, and we’re here to help! With that being said, since we still have to book our park passes ahead of time, which park should we choose to visit first thing in the morning?
77% of our respondents have FAILED to get on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, but Disney has instituted a few changes recently that may make things easier for you to grab a boarding group!
They updated the system so that anyone eligible from your friends and family to obtain a boarding group at the time you’re requesting one will be automatically selected as part of your party when you’re trying to get a boarding group, and they’ve installed plexiglass barriers that could potentially increase the ride’s capacity. Now, Disney has announced another BIG change coming to Rise, and we’ve got ALL the details you need to know about it.
UPDATE: Since this post was originally written, the Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group process has changed quite a bit. Guests can currently grab a boarding group at 7AM and 1PM. To try for a pass at 7AM, guests no longer have to be in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You can grab a pass from anywhere as long as you and your party have a Park Pass Reservation for Hollywood Studios. For the 1PM slot, guests must be in the park to get a pass.
Seriously, it may be more difficult to get Splash Mountain merchandise at this point, but getting a Boarding Group for Rise of the Resistance can be quite the endeavor. We recently got confirmation, though, of a new change that makes it WAY easier for guests traveling with friends or family to get a boarding group.
If you’ve been following along with our coverage of Hollywood Studios’ Rise of the Resistance since it’s grand opening back in December, then you know how tricky getting into a coveted boarding group for the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge major attraction has been at Disney World!
And with Disneyland’s Rise of the Resistance poised to open on January 17th, here’s what you’ll need to know to ensure your place in line at the west coast’s version of the ride!
