    Hi Panel! I'm confused about wait times for Rise of the Resistance. If you are lucky enough to get a boarding group, is there still a wait when you arrive? Also, is there some push notification on My Disney App when it's your turn?

    Bright suns Lydia! You’re asking a great planning question! In a galaxy not so far away, you will find Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! I’ll happily help you navigate the virtual queue for experiencing the out-of-this-world attraction! Before we get started, just be sure that you have your My Disney Experience account created on the Walt Disney World Resort website, and that you have downloaded the My Disney Experience app to your mobile device. You'll need the app to sign up for a boarding group!

    It is quite possible, and more than likely, that Guests will still experience a “wait” from the time they are assigned a boarding group until they actually get to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The beauty of this particular wait is that you are not waiting in a traditional line. Rather you are waiting in a virtual queue. This allows Guests to continue their day at either Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge or experience other parts of Disney’s Hollywood Studios! 

    As long as you have push notifications turned on, you will receive notifications on your device. Your notifications will let you know when to report back to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance to join your boarding group! Additionally, there are digital signboards at various locations throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Those signs will also display which boarding groups should report back to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

    Once you arrive at the attraction, you might still have a brief wait until you can actually begin the experience. Of course, the queue is themed to the attraction, so take some time to enjoy your preparation for this 18-minute long Star Wars adventure starring you!
