    Is ride swap available for the Rise of Resistance ride?

    Bright suns, Holly!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.  I would be happy to give you some tips to help you make the most of your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

    Are you ready to ignite the spark of the Resistance?  Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an attraction unlike anything we have ever experienced before!  You may certainly use the Rider Switch Service at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, however, it works a bit differently for this attraction.

    Currently, a virtual queue system with boarding groups is in place for guests wishing to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  In order to access the attraction, all guests in your party who wish to ride must enter Disney's Hollywood Studios before the park officially opens for the day.  At park opening time, you may use your My Disney Experience mobile app to request to join a boarding group.  Once your boarding group is called, you may go to the attraction entrance and speak to a Cast Member about using Rider Switch, but you must be assigned a boarding group first.

    Of course, procedures for accessing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance could certainly change before your visit, so I would recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news.  As you prepare to travel to a galaxy far, far away, be sure to check out our Disney Parks Moms Panel Guide to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
