Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens in just a few days at the Disneyland Resort. With a new attraction’s opening comes the anticipation for how operations will go on the first day. Here’s what you need to know:
Starting Jan. 17 and continuing as needed, a virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance may be used to help move guests through the attraction as efficiently as possible. The use of a virtual queue will allow guests to enjoy their day exploring the rest of Disneyland park while they wait for their boarding group to be called.
To join the virtual queue, you’ll need to download the official Disneyland mobile app. Once you’re logged into your account, request to join a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance once you’ve entered the park. Keep in mind that the virtual queue will not be available until that day’s published park hours begin.
Once you’ve joined a boarding group, simply enjoy your day and wait for a push notification when it’s your turn to ride. You can monitor the status of boarding groups from inside the Disneyland app. There will also be signage throughout the park that will display boarding group status.
If you don’t have a smartphone or haven’t downloaded the Disneyland app, don’t worry! There is a way for you to join a boarding group as well. Guests without access to the Disneyland app can join a boarding group from select locations inside Disneyland park. Your boarding group is tied to your park admission, which will be scanned when you enter the attraction to confirm your spot.
Keep in mind that access to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be subject to capacity, and having an assigned boarding group does not guarantee that you’ll get to ride the attraction.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens on Jan. 17 at the Disneyland Resort! To learn more, visit Disneyland.com.
