Virtual Queue Update for Rise of the Resistance

Important Disney Parks Updates Concerning COVID-19

If you are visiting the parks in 2020, you can expect a completely different experience.

Disney World Planning during Coronavirus Resources

For guests with upcoming Disney Park Pass reservations to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it is important to know that the popular ride Rise of the Resistance will once again be using virtual queue in the My Disney Experience app. Changes to the process begin on July 15.

Guests will now have an opportunity at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. or 4 p.m. to request to join the virtual queue. This means there is no need to arrive early to the park to check the virtual queue.  

Here are a few important details to know before you arrive:

  • Have the My Disney Experience app ready to go on your phone. You must be inside the park and logged in at the distribution times (10 a.m., 1 p.m. or 4 p.m.). 
  • Select “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue” on the app and follow steps for joining the virtual queue. 
  • The app will indicate availability for specific distribution times.
  • Space is not guaranteed, and some guests may join backup groups. 
  • Your My Disney Experience account must be linked to your park tickets (including you and the others in your group). You can then enter your entire group in the virtual queue at the same time.
  • Each guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day.
  • Turn on push notifications in the My Disney Experience app to be notified when your group is called.
  • You’ll have up to an hour from the time of the alert to go to the entrance of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

If you have any questions or need assistance with joining the virtual queue, cast members at Guest Experience Team locations throughout the park are available to assist. While you wait for your virtual queue group to be called, you can enjoy other experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios including our newest addition, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. 

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, and we know many of our guests are familiar with using virtual queue to experience this one-of-a-kind adventure. For other attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, we plan to use our regular standby queues to manage capacity and to maintain physical distancing.
