    Hi, I am booked into the Beach Club this Summer and we are looking forward to going into Galaxys Edge. I have heard that if I have an ADR booked for Olgas Cantina, we do not need to join a boarding group for rise of the resistance. Is this correct?

    Hello, Matthew!

    Thank you so much for sending this great question to us at Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Putting together that perfect plan to explore all that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, an All-New Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios has to offer is a good idea. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere--and out-of-this world beverage selections--at Oga's Cantina at the Walt Disney World Resort, so be sure to get a reservation to check out this unique venue, too. Upon arrival, check in with a Cast Member at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation; this will put you into the queue to be seated as soon as possible.

    While that reservation will get you into the most exclusive watering hole in the Galaxy, it will not enable you to enter Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, so I am SO glad that you asked! To join a Boarding Group for that attraction, Guests must have activated their park ticket by entering Disney's Hollywood Studios. When we were there, Guests lined up well in advance of Park Open, and we were allowed to enter the park about 30 minutes prior to the official opening. Once inside, we could advance as far as Center Stage on Hollywood Boulevard. (For those needing a beverage, The Trolly Car Cafe is open.)

    To join a Boarding Group, have the My Disney Experience mobile app open, and be ready--at Park Open--to select "Find Out More" on the app's homepage. Once you are on the next screen, you'll see "Join a Boarding Group" if there are remaining Boarding Groups for the day. Much like when making FastPass+ selections for your entire party, you'll have to select who will be boarding with you, so be sure that Family & Friends list is as short as it can be. This page, by the way, is where you can also see which Boarding Groups have been invited to ride. You'll have up to two hours to enter the attraction once your Group # is invited.

    Because you chose Disney's Beach Club Resort as your home base, you'll have easy access to Disney's Hollywood Studios at that early hour. Smart thinking!  The park is an easy walk from your resort, so you won't have to wait for transportation to get you from Point A to Point B.

    As you plan your summer journey to explore Galaxy's Edge, be sure to send us more questions, Matthew. We love to help!
