    What happens if I book dining ahead of time at Hollywood Studios and it conflicts with Rise of the Resistance boarding group time?

    Bright suns, Jenna!

    I am happy you made the jump through light speed to visit us here at planDisney.  Before you know it, you'll be walking among both Resistance rebels and the First Order while you explore Black Spire Outpost!

    During our last visit, I learned that I may be "Force-sensitive" as something kept telling me that this very thing would happen to us.  AND IT DID!  Our boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance was called about forty minutes before our dining reservation.  With younglings in tow, we rushed off to join the Resistance!  But the First Order had other plans and they kept us in the hanger for questioning, blocking us from our transport. 

    It became clear that we would miss our dining reservation, so my husband used the Force to influence a First Order General (who seemed to possibly be a spy with sympathy for the Resistance) to allow us escape the hanger.  He gave us a new mission and provided paperwork to rendezvous with a new Resistance team at a later time that day.

    When your boarding group is called, you have an hour to join your Resistance team.  If like me, you find yourself in a place where this window directly conflicts with your dining reservation, I recommend you first try using your My Disney Experience Mobile App to adjust your dining reservation.  If no alternate dining reservations are available, try using the Force and seek out a Guest Relations Cast Member for help securing a different departure time for your mission.

    Be sure to download the Play Disney Parks Mobile App before you land in Batuu for access to the Star Wars: Datapad.  This tool can help you translate the local's language, earn galactic credits and more during your visit.  Fly back to planDisney if you have any questions before you land!

    May the force be with you!  Angie
