Without a doubt, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is getting incredible reviews. Because of Disney’s current “boarding pass” system, we have received questions on how exactly you would include Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in a touring plan. Currently, this is what we suggest:
1. Create a touring plan that does not include Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance for your Studios day.
2. Arrive at the park before the park opens and join a boarding group (available through the My Disney Experience app) immediately. (Note: You likely will need to “tap in” at the park before that option is available, however certainly try even before you enter the park just in case. The lower your boarding group number, the sooner you will get to ride.)
3. Follow your touring plan until your boarding group number is called.
4. Pause your touring plan, and once you’ve exited Rise of the Resistance, re-optimize your touring plan.
