    how do I book rise of the resistance if I am not staying at a Disney resort? How do I get the lightning lane for that?

    Bright Suns, Kate!

    How exciting that you’re preparing to travel to the planet of Batuu! My entire family loves exploring Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge; there’s so much to do. Whether you’re a fan of Blue Milk or Green Milk, you should most definitely stop to try refreshments at Milk Stand

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is truly an adventure unlike any other, and I am thrilled to hear about your interest in experiencing it! Guests have the option of waiting in a traditional standby line or purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane to gain access to the Lightning Lane queue for this attraction. 

    As you know, Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can make this purchase beginning at 7:00 AM, and Guests not staying on-site are able to purchase the Individual Lightning Lane when Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens for the day. Since hours are subject to change, I recommend keeping an eye on the calendar for the date you’re planning to visit. 

    On the morning of your visit, you will want to have your My Disney Experience Mobile App open just before the park opens. Tap on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner, and select My Disney Genie Day. Next, choose Tip Board on the top left side and change the park to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Next, please scroll down to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and it is here that you can purchase the Individual Lightning Lane if it is being offered.

    If you cannot purchase the Individual Lightning Lane for any reason, I recommend checking the wait times on the page above. Sometimes I wait until the end of the day before park closing to hop in line, as the wait time may be shorter. 

    May the Force be with you, Kate!
