Walt Disney World VIP Tour Guests Can Ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Without a Boarding Group Beginning July 11

Since the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, all guests, including those on a VIP tour, were required to obtain a boarding group to experience the attraction. Starting July 11, VIP Tour guests will no longer need boarding groups and will be escorted right on to the popular ride.

The Rise of the Resistance boarding group system is notoriously complicated. Even though Disney is continually tweaking the system to improve it, guests may see the appeal in paying extra to ensure their party will get to ride.

Rates for tours start at $425 per hour. Learn more about VIP Tours here.

What I like about this most is that as a passholder when we have our family in town this makes alot of sense. I was just going to secure the VIP tour for when they visit. We can now all go to the park everyone wants to go to and not have to worry about how and if we can secure Rise of the Resistance for us all. Great idea Disney.

The real news for me is the fact that they didn’t have this before. That’s kinda crazy. Do they have the VIP guide, a Disney employee, sitting on the app at 7am trying to get a boarding group? Seems ridiculous.

That $425 an hour is only on very “low season” days, but still has a 7 hour minimum. Rates only go up from there. One tour can accommodate up to 10 people.

And from that $425/hr, they give $15 to the guide.
