Disney shares virtual queue update for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

With Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopening to guests on July 15, Walt Disney World has shared an update on the status of virtual queues for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

The attraction will be using virtual queue through the My Disney Experience app, but there will be a few changes to the process.

Guests with Disney Park Pass reservations for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will have multiple opportunities to join the virtual queue during the day: at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. This means that you don’t have to arrive extra early to the park to join the virtual queue.

Here’s a step-by-step on how to join the queue:

  1. Make sure you have the My Disney Experience app, for starters. Once you enter the park, log in to your account at one of the distribution times listed above.
  2. Once you’ve logged in, select “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue” on the home screen. There, you’ll be able to see the current status and next steps for joining the virtual queue.
  3. The app will indicate when there is no availability for a specific distribution time. Some guests may join backup groups.
  4. As long as your My Disney Experience account is linked to park tickets for you and your party, you can enroll everyone in the virtual queue at the same time. However, to ensure that as many guests can experience the attraction as possible, each guest can only enter the virtual queue once per day.
  5. Make sure push notifications are turned on for My Disney Experience so you’ll receive an alter when it’s your turn to ride. 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.

Keep in mind that joining the virtual queue does not guarantee the ability to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

If you have any trouble with joining the virtual queue, cast members at the Guest Experience Team locations throughout the park will be able to help.

Other than Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, there is no FastPass+ or virtual queue option for any other attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. For those other attractions, the regular standby queues will be used to manage capacity and maintain physical distancing.

  1. Hi Attractions Folks, Just a note to give us an update once you have tried this new queing system. If it works like the last process there will be some gotcha’s and dont miss steps. (i.e. go to the correct screen to attempt to get into the virtual que. The last process didnt mention there was an extra screen to go to after you get into the main virtual request screen. If that make any sense without pictures.) Any way let us know how it goes for you.

  2. Hope the Star Wars Virtual Que works better now. The original was disaster! Everyone frantically trying to get into park before the park opened . Then only 2-3 minutes and they were all gone for the day. In California, the California Adventure people came over to get the pass and then immediately left to go over to California Adventure. Disneyland opened a whole set of gates to let them out! That meant the lines for Disneyland were insane. I still think there has to be a better way. Maybe Disneyland needs to go to wrist bands like WDW and let guests choose Star Wars 60 days ahead along with other rides. I love the bracelet.
