The ever popular Star Wars attraction — Rise of the Resistance — is set up a bit differently than other theme park attractions located throughout Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.
This ride, located inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California, requires a boarding group within its virtual queue system in order for Guests to ride the attraction.
Changes to Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue at Disney World
However, it wasn’t long ago that Inside the Magic reported Disney announced changes to its popular theme park attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, upon the official reopening of Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. Not too long after this report, Walt Disney World announced that it will be updating its modified virtual queue for its most popular attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
But now, Disney is making another change to Rise of the Resistance within the My Disney Experience app. It looks as though My Disney Experience has now brought back boarding groups!
Boarding Groups Return to Rise of the Resistance in Disney World
You can see in the screenshot below, when you open up the Rise of the Resistance page within the app, it now states “Now Boarding Groups: 1 to 12”. This means the return time has now been taken away and Disney has decided to go back to calling a specific group of Boarding Group numbers at a time, which is how the process was done when Rise of the Resistance first opened.
