The virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance just received a major update, which will make it even easier for you to grab a boarding pass! Read on for details.

Rise of the Resistance

Rise of the Resistance is hands down the most popular attraction in all of Disney World right now. It is also the only ride that uses a virtual queue system.

In this queue system, anyone who wishes to experience Rise of the Resistance must join a group at 10 am or 2 pm via the My Disney Experience app. It is very hard to grab a boarding group with capacity being reached within seconds.

The process becomes even more stressful when there are multiple people in your party. You must click every single person who wishes to ride, and if there are a lot of people in your Friends and Family list precious seconds are lost if you have to scroll through to add everyone.

Much Needed Update

Disney has heard our cry for help! Now, when you try to join the virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance, you will notice that everyone who has tapped into the park is automatically checked on the list!

Now all you have to do is click right through and hopefully it’s fast enough for you to obtain a boarding pass!

It is vital that everyone is tapped into the park! I know there were some issues on reopening day when our KtP writing team was at the park. Some of the scanners turned blue when a few of us tried to tap in.

If there is an issue at the entrance, make sure you find a Cast Member to resolve the issue before 10 am!

  1. I think this is wonderful as everyone will get a Chance now no matter the size of your party. I have a question though. My son is on my friends list as he is coming with us on the trip but he won’t be going to Hollywood Studios with us. Will he still be on my friends list when we go to sign up or will he not be on there since his magic band wasn’t scanned? Just hope he won’t be on there as it will take precious time to remove him. Thanks

  2. I will look forward to trying the new system. Despite repeated attempts, we have not been able to get on the ride. It’s been a huge disappointment considering the amount of money spent to stay on property and buy passes. Thanks for the update!

  3. That will be nice for larger groups, but it may put singles or couples (like us) at a bit of a disadvantage, as the spaces can now get eaten up even more quickly.
