When Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance reopens with the phased reopening of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it will continue to utilize the virtual queue system. The news was announced by the Disney Parks Blog today. It also includes some updates on how the system works. While the basics of the system will be the same, there won’t be that opening moment rush to get into the virtual queue. Instead, there will be opportunities to join the virtual queue at 10:00 AM, 1:00 PM, or 4:00 PM each day starting on July 15th with the park reopening. With these new times, there will no longer be a rush to get into Disney’s Hollywood Studios early in the morning to get into the virtual queue.

Virtual Queue Directions from Disney Parks Blog

  • First, make sure you have the My Disney Experience app. Once you enter the park, log in to your account at one of the distribution times (10 a.m., 1 p.m. or 4 p.m.).
  • Once you have logged in, select “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue” on the home screen. You will be able to view the current status and next steps for joining the virtual queue.
  • The app will indicate when there is no availability for a specific distribution time. Some guests may join backup groups.
  • As long as your My Disney Experience account is linked to park tickets for you and the others in your group, you can enroll everyone in the virtual queue at the same time. In order to give as many guests as possible the opportunity to join the Resistance, each guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day.
  • Make sure push notifications are turned on for My Disney Experience so you will be alerted if your group is called to return. You’ll have up to an hour from the time of the alert to go to the entrance of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
  • Please note that joining the virtual queue does not guarantee the ability to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

For those with questions, there will be Cast Members at Guest Experience Team locations to help. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be utilizing the virtual queue and other attractions will be continuing to offer traditional standby queues. This will be to help with physical distancing and also help with the management of capacity.
