Virtual Queue at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Opens with Advertised Park Hours
As more and more Guests ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Disney has been testing new ideas to make the overall experience the best it can be. We’ve been learning so much and are focused on continuing to make the process of getting into the park and onto the attraction even better every day and want to ensure all of our Guests know what to expect when visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios®.

Here’s what to know:

Virtual queue will be available at the published park opening time. Disney may welcome Guests onto Hollywood Boulevard prior to opening the rest of the park, and limited nearby locations will be open for their convenience. This includes Trolley Car Café where your Clients can pick up a beverage for their own personal “jump to lightspeed,” and if they need to grab a few galactic gifts, Keystone Clothiers will be available.

At the park’s published opening time, the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens along with offerings throughout the rest of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Guests must be in Disney’s Hollywood Studios to access virtual queue in the My Disney Experience app.

Due to the incredible popularity of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Disney will continue to distribute backup boarding groups after the initial planned groups have been filled. Backup boarding groups will only be called if all of the initial planned boarding groups have been called back and there is capacity for more riders that evening. If Disney is able to accommodate boarding groups that evening, Guests will be notified through the My Disney Experience app by a push notification (if enabled).
