Disney Announces Changes to Virtual Queue Procedure for Rise of the Resistance


Beginning November 3rd, there will be a new procedure for obtaining a boarding pass for the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Here's a breakdown of how the new process 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. 

The attraction’s virtual queue is only accessible via the My Disney Experience mobile app.

This is a big change and will hopefully result in a better experience as guests will no longer need to be inside the theme park each morning to request a boarding group for the first virtual queue opportunity.
