    We have a large group (4 families). If trying to get a boarding pass for Rise of the Resistance should I try to book the entire group or have each family try separately? My dad has mobility issues with some discomfort, would this ride be to much? TY again

    Hi there, Christine! Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop back by and allowing us to help you plan another vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    You and your entire family are in for an adventure unlike any other during your summer visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! This amazingly immersive land transports Guests to the distant planet of Batuu where you will be able to explore the Black Spire Outpost. Here, you can engage with locals, wander through the eclectic bazaar, sample some out-of-this-world cuisine, and even pilot the Millennium Falcon on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run! 

    One of the most popular attractions, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, does require Guests to join a virtual queue before boarding! This may be done through the My Disney Experience app at two separate times each day. You will have the opportunity to join a group from any location at 7:00 am and from inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at 1:00 pm later in the day. I would recommend changing your approach based on how you would like to experience this attraction! If you would like to experience it in one large group, you may want to try and book as one group. If you are okay with experiencing it in separate families, I would suggest having each group try separately. Regardless of your decision, be sure to link everyone’s My Disney Experience account through the Family & Friends List feature before joining the virtual queue! 

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance does require Guests to transfer from their ECV or wheelchair into the ride vehicle. During my time experiencing this attraction, Cast Members have been extremely accommodating with my mobility concerns and help in whatever way possible. I will say this attraction does have sudden movements of the ride vehicle so, based on your father’s condition, this may be uncomfortable. I will say it largely depends on his specific condition and if he is okay with being seated in a quickly moving ride vehicle, though! 

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful time visiting Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
