    Can rider switch be used for Rise of the Resistance if we both have a boarding group?

    Bright suns, Ashley! Thanks for making another stop at planDisney on your way to a galaxy, far, far away. We're always glad to help a fellow intergalactic traveler.

    How exciting that it's almost time to live your very own Star Wars adventure on planet Batuu! Whether you will be traveling with younglings who do not meet the height requirement or Padawans that aren't quite ready to fight the First Order, Rider Switch is a great way for experienced Jedis to enjoy the most thrilling attractions in the galaxy.

    The best news for your crew Ashley, is that Rider Switch IS available at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Everyone wishing to ride must join the virtual queue using My Disney Experience. When your boarding group number is called, journey to Black Spire Outpost and let the Cast Member at the attraction know that you'd like to use Rider Switch. After scanning your MagicBands or admission cards, you'll be issued the entitlement and the first group of Resistance fighters will be on their way. Be sure the My Disney Experience mobile app is open ready to go at exactly 10:00 or 2:00 for your best shot at securing a spot in the virtual queue. My fellow panelist, Aena, recommends stepping away from the crowds once inside Disney's Hollywood Studios and using cellular data rather than Wifi for a less busy signal. 

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an experience unlike any other I've had in a Disney Park. Without spoiling anything, all I can say is: prepare to be fully immersed in an exhilarating, unforgettable Star Wars adventure. Because the attraction is lengthy, I recommend exploring the surrounding area and refueling at the Milk Stand or browsing for antiquities while awaiting the rest of the group's return. I hope everything works out for you and your crew, and that your efforts against the First Order are successful. 

    May the Force be with you,
