It’s been a rough day over at Rise of the Resistance, with multiple delays in calling boarding groups. It looks like Rise had delays in calling boarding groups around 11 a.m. for about half an hour, another delay at 1:30 p.m. for almost an hour, and a third delay at 3 p.m. for another 45 minutes.  At this rate, Rise of the Resistance might not get to 140 boarding groups, which is 30 below the best day it’s had over the past week.
