    Hi moms! Going to Hollywood studios in may2020 & wondering if we get into the virtual queue for rise of resistance, when we get called how long is it before you ride? I know you have 2 hrs to get there but once there is it quick or still a long wait?

    Hello Beth! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds as though you are gearing up for a visit to a galaxy far, far away in the not too distant future!

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is living up to all the hype! This attraction is more like an 18-minute Star Wars adventure than a typical ride. The special effects are the most stunning I have seen in the Disney Parks! In order to experience this attraction, you must have the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded to your mobile device. Once you have entered Disney's Hollywood Studios, during regular operating hours, you can use the app to secure a Boarding Group. Once you have received a Boarding Group make sure that your push notifications on your device are turned on. You will receive a notification of when it is time for your Boarding Group to return. Once you receive your notification, you will have either one or two-hours to make your way back to the attraction. You will be informed if you have one-hour or two-hours to return. You will also notice digital signs throughout the park stating which groups should report for boarding. Once you arrive at the queue you will have to wait approximately 30-to-45 minutes until you reach the first scene of the attraction. Believe me, it is well worth every minute of that wait!

    Beth, I hope this information is helpful as you prepare for your visit! May the Force be with you!
