Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Will Use Virtual Queue During ‘Jollywood Nights’ at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be utilizing virtual queue during the Disney Jollywood Nights event. This does not impact operating procedures during normal operating hours, during which the stand-by line will continue to be available.

Virtual Queue for Rise of the Resistance

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a trackless dark ride found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, with elements of motion simulation, drops, and walk-through experiences.

Virtual Queue is free and dispensed twice each day — once at 7 a.m. (which you can book remotely with a valid park reservation through the My Disney Experience app) and again at 1 p.m. (all guests must be physically in the park at this time). Guests are placed in boarding groups, and updated throughout the day on which groups are being called.

Since this holiday event will take place in the evening, it’s unclear when the virtual queue spots will be given out, or if there will only be one opportunity to join.
