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.

  1. Does anyone know (roughly) how many people are in a boarding group, or how much time one boarding group can be expected to take? I’m wondering if, say, I’m in group 20 and I see group 18 is up…does that mean I stop what I’m doing and hurry over to Galaxy’s Edge, or does it mean I likely have 90-some minutes remaining?

  2. The entire process is all screwed up. Tell Disney where to shove their virtual line in their virtual bank account.
    The real facts. Reservations begin when the park opens to all. That was 8 AM on the 18th. I was there. App running sitting on the reservation page. It wouldn’t update to allow a lot of people to see the button to hit to join a group. Completely reloading the page gave me group 124 at 8:03. At about 8 PM I received a message that my group would not be called.
    5 years of holding the highest level pass and these clowns come up with the idea of a virtual line that is sold out for a 16 hour day in under 3 minutes.
    No more annual passes. No more food reservations and no more buying stuff in the stores. I was spending about $10,000 a year at the parks. Gone in 3 minutes. I encourage very one to stay away. Let their attendance continue to decline so management will fire some incompetent noimagineers May they rot in poverty

    1. Even better, spend your time and money at Universal. That’s what I do, I add to their numbers. Better overall experience in my book.
