    Hi, I was wondering how long a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance typically has to wait in line, once the group is called? And what is the maximum size of boarding group allowed? Thanks!

    Bright Suns Candy!

    How exciting to hear that you are planning a visit to Batuu! Having returned recently from Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, I would estimate that the typical wait in line after your boarding group is called is 30-45 minutes although this estimate could change depending on the success or challenge of other Resistance forces fighting before you. If a ship goes down or an R-5 droid loses its way, you may have to evacuate. Rest assured that other Resistance forces will ensure that you complete your mission. On our last visit, travelers in the boarding groups immediately before ours had to evacuate - they estimated that they waited for approximately 45 minutes to re-board.

    With respect to the maximum size of a boarding group, I believe you are asking how large your party can be when trying to join a boarding group. I contacted website support to verify my answer to this question. The Cast Member with whom I spoke said that there really is no maximum number but each member of your party has to be in the park as you attempt to add them to a boarding group. However, you may want to try splitting your party and have at least two people using the My Disney Experience Mobile App to secure boarding groups.

    When we visited last, the boarding group process went smoothly on one day and was challenging on another day. On both days, we arrived prior to opening but, on the second day, were unable to join a boarding group using the mobile app because three members of our party were not registering as in the park. We had to enlist the support of a Cast Member on Hollywood Boulevard. With her assistance, we joined boarding group 101 and were able to join the Resistance by about 8:30 p.m. When all went smoothly on the first day, we were able to join a boarding group by 10:00 a.m. So, consider carefully how you will actually divide your party (if at all) when attempting to join a boarding group.

    Candy, also be sure to check the planetary hours for the dates of your visit. Be sure you have arranged good transport, that you clear security, and are past the entrance prior to opening time. I trust that you have reserved time at Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop. Take this time on Batuu to gather information and forge alliances for the Resistance. If you have motivated allies with you, be sure that you bring your Star Wars: Datapad - the Resistance needs additional operatives who can hack into droids and translate galactic languages. We anxiously await your arrival!

    Good journey,
