    Hi, my family and I really want to go on the Star Wars Rise of the Resistance ride. We’re not staying at a Disney hotel. What is the best way to guarantee we can go on it with least queue possible? Seems that ILL usually sold out at 7am so that won’t work?

    Bright Suns, Michael! As a fellow member of the Resistance, I want to welcome you to planDisney! We desperately need your help for this secret mission right outside the Black Spire Outpost, so let's navigate this together to make sure your entire group can join forces with us against the First Order. Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an adventure like no other, and because of that, we need all the help we can get to experience it, especially depending on the time of year you visit. 

    For Individual Lightning Lane entry, Guests of a Disney Resort hotel may make their first purchase starting at 7:00 AM on the day of their visit through their My Disney Experience app. All other Guests may make their first purchase when the park opens. But not all hope is lost. You can join the regular queue as soon as you enter the park. I recommend you do that and check the Individual Lightning Lane availability on your way to Batuu. Rebellions are built on hope.

    It may be a long wait since Disney Resort Guests can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, which is one of the beautiful benefits of staying on-site. But it's worth it.

    While snagging an Individual Lightning Lane isn't guaranteed, don't worry! You can always join the regular queue as soon as you enter the park and check for availability on your way to Batuu. In my experience, checking multiple times a day can increase your chances of booking a Lightning Lane, even if it initially appears to be sold out. So, keep trying! In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.

    I can't wait to see you join the Resistance and help us rise against the First Order. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask. I have a really good feeling about this!

    Til the Spire!
