    We go to Hollywood Studios next week! We are so excited to have the Star Wars experience, but have been curious about the rise of the resistance! How does the queue times work and should i put myself in line at both times with having a lightsaber res @ 11?

    Bright suns, Santina! Thanks for stopping by to see us en route to a galaxy far, far away. I'd be happy to assist a fellow Jedi from Maryland as you prepare for takeoff.

    How exciting that in just a few days, you'll be living your own Star Wars adventure on the planet Batuu. Just recently, I visited Black Spire Outpost and was fortunate enough to escape the clutches of the First Order on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The experience is truly out of this galaxy, and I hope you have the opportunity to secure a boarding pass for this unique attraction. Be sure to open My Disney Experience as the clock strikes 7:00 AM on the day of your visit for the best chance of joining the virtual queue. Boarding group numbers are generated automatically, and you will not be able to select a return time, but rest assured it is possible to both battle the First Order and forge a custom lightsaber in the same day. 

    When your boarding group is called, you will have a one hour window to enter the attraction. Because you should plan to spend approximately thirty minutes at Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers, you will have plenty of time to wield your creation and make your way to the entrance of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance before the hour expires even if the two appointments overlap. Should you anticipate a conflict, see a Cast Member at the attraction or a member of the Guest Experience Team stationed throughout the park. Keep in mind that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a lengthy endeavor, and you may encounter a brief queue, so plan for the entire experience here to last at least thirty minutes. 

    Santina, I hope this helps as you make the final countdown before jumping to light speed. I've been an aspiring Jedi since I was a Youngling, and visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge was an exciting, emotional adventure. Have a safe journey, and may the Force be with you.

    Til the spire,
