As many of you know, if you are planning to ride Rise of the Resistance at Disney World or Disneyland, or WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure at Disney California Adventure, you and your party must need to obtain a boarding group through a Virtual Queue process in order to get in the physical line.
Now, Disney has made another change to the Virtual Queue process — making it easier to confirm your party prior to the Virtual Queue opening!
Disney World and Disneyland made a small change to the Virtual Queue process, now allowing Guests to confirm their party for the day up to one hour before the Virtual Queue opens for the day! Scott Gustin pointed out the change as he Tweeted the following:
NEW: Disney made another small change to the virtual queue process at WDW and Disneyland.
Starting *1 hour* before the boarding group queue opens, you can now confirm your party.
When the window opens, pull down or tap “refresh” to join queue.
So what this means is that if the Virtual Queue opens up at 7 a.m., Guests have the option to go into the My Disney Experience app or the Disneyland app and confirm their party for the day beginning at 6 a.m. Now, you do not have to do this right at 6 a.m. In fact, you can do it anytime between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., meaning you can confirm your party at 6:55 a.m., just 5 minutes before the Virtual Queue opens if you wish!
Just to clarify, this change applies to the Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue on both coasts as well as the Virtual Queue for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure at Disney California Adventure.
In the screenshots below, taken by an Inside the Magic team member, you can see that the app will say your party is zero if you do not have a theme Park reservation. As long as you have a Park reservation, your party will show up, but you can also “change party”.
Another Twitter user Marky Marc Twain (@tasgvlogs) shade a video of what the process looks like if you wish to confirm your party prior to the Virtual Queue opening:
Love this new method of Boarding Groups!

We also noticed, there are now tips within the app telling Guests how to “refresh” right at 7 a.m. to join the queue, streamlining the process. You can see this reflected in the screenshot below.
This small change will make it easier for Guests to confirm their party prior to the Virtual Queue opening, which will also (hopefully) alleviate some stress during the process!
