Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance has been using a boarding group system to permit guest entry to the new ride since it opened on Thursday in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Some love the system for allowing them to go do other things instead of waiting in a long line, while those who arrive later sometimes find all of the boarding groups to be gone, even before the posted park opening time.
If one arrived early enough the last few days, it was possible to grab one of the earliest boarding groups, get into the attraction, and book another before they ran out for the day. As of Sunday, December 8th, guests are now only permitted to have one boarding group a day by the MyDisneyExperience app.
This change will allow more guests to experience the attraction daily, but it leaves little advantage to this morning’s Extra Magic Hours offering.
