Disney Confirms New Park Open Boarding Group Procedure Will Now Be Daily for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
As more and more guests ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Disney has been testing new methods to make the overall experience as streamlined as possible. In an effort to ensure that all guests know what to expect when visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios, they’ve announced official boarding group procedures for the time being, as well as how to join a backup boarding group.
Here’s what you need to know:
As was first implemented today, virtual queue will be available at the published park opening time. The park may welcome guests onto Hollywood Boulevard prior to opening the rest of the park, and limited nearby locations will be open for guest convenience. This includes Trolley Car Café, where you can pick up a beverage, and Keystone Clothiers, for Star Wars gifts.
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 Experienceapp.
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 they are able to accommodate boarding groups that evening, guests will be notified through the My Disney Experience app by a push notification (if enabled).
For anyone with questions or needing a hand with the virtual queue, the members of the Guest Experience Team are available throughout the park to assist.
