Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Groups Distributed In Just 23 Minutes Today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
The only way to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is by obtaining a Boarding Group via the My Disney Experience app, and with constantly-changing park hours and opening operations, it’s hard enough for locals and Annual Passholders to obtain a reasonable Boarding Group (if one at all), and practically Byzantine for guests attempting to obtain a Boarding Group on vacation.
Today, the attraction saw its shortest Boarding Group distribution time to date.
According to our calculations, all Boarding Groups (including Backup Boarding Groups) were distributed within 23 minutes after park open. That’s 7 minutes shorter than yesterday, which clocked in at 30 minutes. Overall, Boarding Group distribution has been subject to blips and trends. On Tuesday, groups were available until 11:19 AM, and New Year’s Eve is notorious for high-level crowding.
Reports on social media indicate that issues with the My Disney Experience app crashing, combined with extended downtime for the attraction due to various breakdowns, has wrought havoc on today’s Boarding Group process.
In HS before 7 and trying to get boarding passes for Rise of the Resistance when HS opened (kept crashing for second day). Finally got one at 7:02 – group 140. Frustrating, @WaltDisneyWorld! There are many unhappy guests who were up early and did everything right. pic.twitter.com/sgSNayqoPe
