Boarding Group Star Wars: rise of the Resistance

In an effort to reduce early morning crowding at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney has announced that guests with a valid ticket or annual pass and a Disney Park Pass reservation for the park will be able to access the virtual "boarding group" queue system beginning at 7:00 AM on the day of their park reservation, regardless of where they are. Boarding groups can be accessed from Disney resort hotel, or wherever else nearby a guest might be at that time. 

And though this early morning boarding group will now be available to all guests regardless of where they are, the "second chance" virtual queue that opens at 2:00 PM daily for anyone who wasn’t already able to join a boarding group earlier in the day will still be location-locked, and guests must be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios to access this additional virtual queue opportunity. 

This new policy for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance's virtual queue will hopefully relieve a lot of the early morning stress guests experience at this park and reduce crowding and lines at park entrances early in the morning, which have been known to stretch into the parking lot as crowds gather early in the morning while still socially distancing. Of course, Disney may change this policy if it ends up not working, but with parks passes and valid admission required, it seems unlikely that there would be very many "no shows" under this brand new policy.  

Guests can begin making these out-of-park reservations beginning next Tuesday on November 3, 2020. Will you be trying to use this new system to experience this attraction? 



Has anyone defined "nearby" to get a boarding group? I live 20 miles from WDW. Is that nearby?

As long as you have a valid ticket or annual pass and a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney's Hollywood Studios you should be able to access the virtual "boarding group" queue system beginning at 7:00 AM on the day of your park reservation. Good luck!
