    Hi how do you get a number for Star Wars galaxy edge.

    Hello Sandy! You are asking all of the right questions as you continue to prepare for your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort this coming summer! Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is getting a lot of praise for the two main attractions: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! Guests can (and should) experience both of these attractions! However, the manner in which Guests access these attractions are different.

    Accessing Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is done in one of two ways. There is always the traditional standby line for Guests to use. This attraction has proven to be very popular so the standby line can be a bit lengthy. The other option, which I recommend, is to try to secure a FastPass+ reservation for this ride. This can be done using your My Disney Experience app. Remember, if you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can make FastPass+ reservations 60-days prior to your trip. If you are staying off-property, you can make your FastPass+ reservations 30-days prior to your trip.

    Guests wishing to experience the stunning Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, must do so by joining a Boarding Group. To do so, you must have the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. You can download this app at any time and I recommend that you do so prior to your vacation.

    To secure a Boarding Group, you must be inside of Disney's Hollywood Studios during regular park operating hours. Once inside the park, tap on your My Disney Experience app. You will see "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance - Access by Boarding Group." Tap "Find Out More." You will come to a new screen, tap "Join Boarding Group." As long as Boarding Groups are still available, you will be assigned a Boarding Group number. You will receive a notification as to what time you should report to the attraction.

    Sandy, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of, if not, the most popular ride in Disney's Hollywood Studios! And rightfully so as it is an amazing experience! If this is a must-do attraction for you, then I strongly recommend arriving very early so that you can be in the park for opening time to secure a Boarding Group! May the Force be with you!
