    Do I need to go on smugglers run before the rise of the resistance? We noticed you can’t book fast pass as you need a boarding wife booked the smuggler run later in mid afternoon as morning wasn’t available. Can I get boarding group first?

    Hello Kevin! I'm glad you came to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your planning question! Let me try to clarify how you and your wife will be able to experience both of these amazing attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge located in Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    Let me first share that you do not have to experience the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attractions in any particular order. However, the manner in which you access the attractions is different. Let me explain how to experience both.

    Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is available with FastPass+ reservations or the traditional standby line. It sounds like your wife was able to secure FastPass+ reservations for this attraction! That is fantastic as this is a highly sought after FastPass! Your wife must be one with the Force!

    In order to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Guests must join a Boarding Group. To join a Boarding Group you must have the My Disney Experience mobile app on your mobile device. You can download that app at any time. You may only join a Boarding Group once you have entered Disney's Hollywood Studios during regular park operating hours.

    Once you have entered the park, tap on your My Disney Experience app. You will see "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance - Access by Boarding Group." Click on "Find Out More." You will then see an option to "Join Boarding Group." Select that option. As long as Boarding Groups are still available for that day, you will be assigned to a Boarding Group. This is the reason why many people wanting to experience this attraction will arrive as early as possible to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Guest arriving after park opening often discover they are unable to receive a Boarding Group assignment.

    Kevin, I hope this information has been useful as you plan your visit to a galaxy far, far away! Have a great visit!
