    Do you need Genie+ to try and get on Rise of the Resistance? Do we still have to try and log in at 7 a.m.? If not, please tell me how to get into the Boarding Group. Thanks!

    Bright Suns, Jeanie.

    Thank the maker you followed the Resistance’s secret coordinates here to planDisney today! Though it seems lightyears away, your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth will be here faster than the Millennium Falcon can jump to hyperspace, so we should get you ready for blast off!

    I see you are Force sensitive and want to use that ability for the greater good by helping the Resistance in their fight against the First Order in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Lucky for you, Boarding Groups are no longer required in order to experience this attraction. Instead, you have two options at this point in time: You can wait in the standby queue, or you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane entrance. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane starting at 7:00 a.m. EST on the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app. If you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you must wait until the official park opening time for Disney’s Hollywood Studios to make your purchase. I personally prefer purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance over waiting in the standby queue since the wait times can get up there in length. However, if you get to Disney’s Hollywood Studios extra early and head straight to the standby queue, it moves pretty quickly.

    I hope this information helps, Jeanie, but please stop back by if you need further clarification. Enjoy your voyage across the galaxy, and may the Force be with you!
