Woah! In news I certainly wasn’t expecting to see. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will no long offer the virtual queue option beginning on September 23.
The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will begin using a traditional standby queue all day for the first time ever. (That’s because when the attraction opened in 2019, it only offered a virtual queue. Which has continued to be the only option to this day.)
For those who have never ridden the attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is unlike anything Disney has ever created. It’s really like 4 attractions in one with incredible effects, a trackless ride vehicle, a run in with Kylo Ren, and a daring escape.
Rise of the Resistance has been an incredibly popular attraction since opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The virtual queue has often filled up to capacity within seconds of it opening at 7:00 a.m. and again at the 1:00 p.m. availability.
This is not not the end of virtual queues though. They will be used for the time being at Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure when the attraction officially opens on October 1. In addition, the Walt Disney World Resort may decided to re-introduce the virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance at any time.
As you can see, this is an ever changing process and we will be sure to keep you updated as we learn more details about what to expect with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
