Poor Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! The ride was only open for a short window of time in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge before the Disneyland Resort closed due to COVID-19. So many Guests did not get the chance to experience this blockbuster attraction on the West Coast, but with the reopening of Disneyland on April 30, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be one of the attractions that will be available for Guests!
But, of course, due to its massive popularity, that means that the Boarding Group process will also return. When it does, it will take a page from what the Walt Disney World Resort is currently doing.
How will it work? Well, Guests will only be able to experience the attraction by joining the virtual queue. You’ll be able to join the attraction’s virtual queue via the Disneyland mobile app. Guests will have two opportunities to sign up for the virtual queue – once in the morning, and once later in the afternoon. Specific times and details will be shared at a later date.
Guests with a valid ticket and theme park reservation who will start their day at Disneyland will be able to access the virtual queue system and check for an available Boarding Group in the morning on the day of their park reservations. Guests will need to have their park tickets linked to their Disney account.
To access the second opportunity later in the day, Guests must have a valid ticket and park reservation, plus they must have entered Disneyland, or Disney California Adventure with a Park Hopper ticket, by the time the second window opens up. Guests beginning their day at Disney California Adventure may then enter Disneyland with their Park Hopper ticket after 1:00 p.m. for their boarding group.
More details on how the virtual queue Boarding Group process will work for Disneyland will be shared when we learn it.
