For a few months, the ride relied on a virtual queue system with boarding groups, the same system that was previously used on Rise of the Resistance. Disney stopped using the virtual queue for the ride this week, and in addition to that, the ride is available during Early Theme Park Entry for resort guests. We stopped by today to test it out ourselves!
Disney has had some major events take place recently, including the holidays, Disney+ Day, and the start of 50th Anniversary celebrations in Disney World.
There’s another big day coming up very soon! January 10th is going to bring some MAJOR changes to the Disney parks, including ride closures, transportation changes, and new snacks. Here are ALL of the things that will be changing on that day.
Disney has been using a virtual queue system for some of their most popular rides. Basically that means that guests can use their smartphones to reserve a “boarding pass” for these rides early in the day, and then they’ll be called back later on when their boarding group is ready.
This prevents a long standby line from forming, and it can save you time in the parks as well. But with very limited boarding passes available and occasional technology glitches in the system, do guests really prefer a virtual queue over standby? We asked our readers to find out! [Read more…]
But more recently we’ve started to see the use of virtual queues being discontinued at select spots. Not too long ago, Disney paused the use of virtual queues for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disney World and Disneyland, and it paused the use of virtual queues on select days for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure in Disney California Adventure. Now, a virtual queue that has been in use in EPCOT is also going away!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a real-life superhero? Well, when you’re visiting Disneyland Resort you can actually make that happen!
Avengers Campus is an entire land in Disney California Adventure dedicated to the Marvel superheroes that we’re used to seeing on the big screen. And, you’ll be able to experience more than a casual wave to Iron Man…you can actually become a superhero on the newest attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Since opening, the attraction has operated with a virtual queue (something that many Disney fans have become used to when visiting the parks nowadays), but it seems that this has changed!
Guests can buy Genie+ for $15 per ticket, per day to skip the line for most Disney World rides. But the two most popular rides in each park have a separate fee to skip the line. These rides use Individual Attraction Selection (or Pay-Per-Ride), and the fees range in price from $7 to $15 right now. So how long would the wait have to be for you to pay to skip the line? We asked our readers, and here’s what you said. [Read more…]
It’s another month down in Disney World and now we’re on to the 50th Anniversary celebrations!
Well, you know what the end of the month means. That’s right! It means we’re back to check in on all the most unexpected and vacation-altering news that happened in Disney World last month! September was pretty wild as we geared up for the 50th, so let’s take a look at the news!
Disney World is making a lot of changes as they prepare to launch the new Disney Genie program.
One of the rides experiencing a lot of changes is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As of right now, there’s only one way to ride Rise of the Resistance, and you can probably expect it to take a LONG time.
Ever wanted to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance WITHOUT a Boarding Group?
We’ve seen Rise of the Resistance open to guests without a boarding group very rarely, but other than that boarding groups have generally been required. Soon, however, things will be changing. How will these upcoming changes potentially impact the situation with the NEW, paid FastPass-like systems Disney will be rolling out soon? Here are our thoughts.
