Back in September, Walt Disney World announced a HUGE change for one of their most popular attractions, Rise of the Resistance. Although this attraction had utilized a Virtual Queue since it first opened, a big change would be coming.
A Virtual Queue is now no longer available for Rise of the Resistance. Currently, the only option to enjoy this attraction is to stand in line. Starting in October, Guests can bypass the line and instead pay for an Individual Lightning Lane.
Currently the only attraction at Walt Disney World still utilizing a Virtual Queue is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT. Many wondered if the news of the Individual Lightning Lane would also change this Virtual Queue as well.

At the time of this writing, the Virtual Queue for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will still be available even once Disney Genie, Genie+, and Individual Lighting Lane are available for Guests.
