    We are coming to Disney World end of August and we have read that the Star Wars Rise of Resistance requires a virtual queue - we do not own a iPhone or iPad so how can we get into a group for the ride?

    Bright suns, Pat!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu!

    It sounds like you are ready to live your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!  This immersive new land is full of must-do experiences, including the one-of-a-kind attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is unlike anything you've ever seen before, and the process for accessing this ride is also different from most attractions.  If you wish to join the Resistance in an epic battle against the First Order, you will need to join a virtual queue.

    Currently, Guests visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios will have the opportunity to join the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at either 10:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m.  This can be done using the My Disney Experience mobile app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone.  However, if you do not have one of these devices, fear not, for fear is the path to the Dark Side.  If you wish to join the virtual queue and you do not have a smartphone, The Guest Experience Team can assist you.  Guest Experience Team Cast Members will be stationed throughout the park.  To spot them, look for their blue shirts.  The Guest Experience Team at Disney's Hollywood Studios wear blue shirts with The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror logo.

    Since the procedure for accessing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is subject to change at any time, I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements.  As you get ready for a vacation of galactic proportions, you may also find this "Know Before You Go" page helpful.  If you have any additional questions, just hop aboard the Millennium Falcon, make the jump to light speed, and set a course for the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  

    May the Force be with you!
