New My Disney Experience App Update Suggests Expanded Use of Virtual Queues at Walt Disney World
Here at WDWNT, we’ve been tracking the distribution of Boarding Groups for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance since the ride debuted here at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and then again after it opened in Disneyland. Recently, we saw the integration of new “My Queues” menus rolled out throughout the Disneyland App, with potential for the virtual queueing process to be added to more attractions. Now the feature has been quietly added to the My Disney Experience app, as it appears an expansion of the Boarding Group/virtual queue system may be imminent for Disney Parks.
Wording throughout the My Disney Experience app has changed most mentions of Boarding Groups to simply “virtual queue”, including a new section called “My Queues”, which appears to have slots for numerous attractions. Theoretically, the same virtual queue process could be used for the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider Man Adventure attraction debuting with the Avengers Campus on July 18th at Disney California Adventure, as well as new upcoming attractions here at Walt Disney World, like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and the TRON Lightcycle Run at the Magic Kingdom.
Do note that these are currently just tests, and that the new “My Queues” screens won’t appear for all My Disney Experience app users until it’s finalized and fully rolled out.
