Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is now open at Hollywood Studios– and Disney is utilizing a virtual queuing process to control crowds.
Here’s what you need to know:
Virtual queue will be available at the published park opening time. Guests can line up early to enter the park, but boarding passes (attraction tickets) will not be available until the published park open time.
At the park’s published opening time, the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens along with offerings throughout the rest of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Guests must be in Disney’s Hollywood Studios to access virtual queue in the My Disney Experience app.
Due to the limited capacity, Disney will distribute backup boarding groups after the initial planned groups have been filled. Backup boarding groups will only be called if all of the initial planned boarding groups have been called back and there is capacity for more riders that evening.
Here’s a quick video describing the process in-depth:
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is expected to use a similar process when it opens at Disneyland January 17th.
