It was first announced back in September Rise of the Resistance in Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World would cease the anxiety ridden virtual queues, better known as boarding groups.

For guests wanting to ride the attraction, a stand by que would become available.

Additionally, Rise of the Resistance skip-the-line benefits would cost an additional fee, which varies based on the day.

Disney confirmed that the Rise of the Resistance attraction at Disneyland would begin to test a hybrid standby and virtual queue beginning on November 22, 2021.

The same testing was put into place for the other virtual queue attraction, Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure across the way at Disney California Adventure Park earlier this month.

At the moment Disneyland will begin the day with standby queue access for Rise of the Resistance.

Virtual queues could potentially be activated on certain days and times.

As expected, guests were excited to have the opportunity of riding the attraction without trying to secure a boarding group either at 7 am or 12 pm.

However, the first day turned out to be quite the adventure for guests, as many of them found themselves waiting in a four hour line during the morning.

The end of the line ended at The Golden Horseshoe which is located in Frontierland.

It is two whole land’s worth of separation! By early evening, the wait time had dwindled to 70 minutes.

As noted above, Rise of the Resistance is open from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm. The park closes at 12:00am.

  1. I only waited about 40 minutes to get on the ride in the evening from the standby line. Whoever waited in line for four hours is way too anxious, but I’m glad it freed up the rest of the park for my family!

  2. I was there that day Sep 22 but I did not go to the standby line until the afternoon. The sign said 90 min wait but we only waiting in line 60 minutes to start the first part of the ride ( the rebel briefing). I went again 2 days later and the wait was 120 min.
