    Hi! My family and I have our visit planned for March. We are very excited about Galaxy’s Edge! I was wondering if you join a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance when you arrive at the gate of HS ..or prior to arriving at HS? Thank you!

    Hi, Miranda!

    Thanks for sending this great question to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so happy that you and your family are excited to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, an All-New Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It is truly unlike anything else you have experienced previously. My family and I visited recently, and each one of us was enthralled by the out-of-this galaxy details of the entire Land.

    In order to join a Boarding Group for the most impressive Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Guests must first activate their park tickets by going through the park entrance. Typically, Guests have been allowed to enter the park about 30 minutes prior to Park Open. When we were there, Guests had lined up at the entrance well in advance of Park Open; once allowed to enter, we could go as far as Center Stage on Hollywood Boulevard until the actual time of the official Park Open.

    Once that moment hits, you should use your My Disney Experience mobile app to join a Boarding Group. You'll see Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance--Access by Boarding Group on the app's home screen, and should click on "Find Out More". On the next screen, if there are remaining Boarding Groups for the day, you'll be able to select "Join Boarding Group". Be sure to have everyone in your party previously linked to your Family & Friends list, much like you would need in order to make FastPass+ plans for them. Once your Boarding Group is invited to enter (posted on the app), you'll have two hours to do so. As such, go enjoy the rest that Disney's Hollywood Studios has to offer until it is time to return and help The Resistance.

    Have a blast(er) on your exciting tour of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, an All-New Land, Miranda! Be sure to send more questions as you plan, too. We love to help!
