Disney has added a Virtual Queue, and it is AMAZING!!
The wait is almost over, Insiders!! After almost a year since Star Wars: Galaxys Edge opened in Disneyland, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will take us on an adventure that is out of this world! This attraction is trackless, features life-sized AT-AT Walkers, and is a revolutionary in Theme-Park storytelling.
As Star Wars fans and Disney fans alike flock to the new attraction, here are some things you can do to ensure that you have the best experience possible!
1. Download the Official Disneyland mobile app
You definitely want to download the Disneyland Mobile app before you head to the park! By downloading The Disneyland App in the app store, you will see a map of Galaxy's Edge, be able to utilize mobile ordering, and even hold your place in line for Rise of the Resistance, which brings us to number 2:
2. Rise of the Resistance, Virtual Queue
Disney is expecting a ton of people to be flocking to the brand-new ride on opening day (yes, we will SO be there!!) Starting Jan. 17, a virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be implemented so people can still enjoy their park day as they "wait in line." While Disney said they will only use the virtual queue "as needed" we are sure it's going to be necessary!
3. How to "Get in Line"
The Disneyland App will have a dedicated module for the new ride. It will be titled "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – Access by Boarding Group" Disney added this module to their homepage, to ensure it was as easy as possible for its guests. Here’s how it will work:
- Request to join a boarding group: In order to get a boarding pass for the attraction, you must first be through the Disneyland gates. Once you have a boarding pass, it works almost exactly like a fastpass. You are given a time to arrive at the new attraction located in the Resistance Base in Batuu West.
- Boarding groups will be sent a push notification when it is their turn to enter the attraction queue. This allows you to enjoy Disneyland instead of waiting in a 5 hour line! You can monitor the status of your boarding groups via the app.
- There also will be the ability to join a boarding group from select locations inside Disneyland park. We understand that not everyone feels comfortable using a mobile app. While that is definitely the easiest method, there are places to join a boarding group in person. The boarding group is tied to your admission that will be scanned upon entry of the attraction. So go to the attraction, and they will be able to help you out!
- Signs throughout the park will display boarding group status.
- Admission into Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be subject to capacity: and of course, the ride can only hold so many people at one time. The ride could also break down at any moment. So if you visit opening week, know that many people are there to ride the new ride. So be kind always, especially to the Cast Members who are trying to ensure we have the best experience possible!
