    Rise Resistance need better understanding how to get in line for this ride. Reading ppl are waiting to enter park 2 hours b4 opening and then using the app to get a spot in line with a boarding group(?). Really? Details please how this ride works

    Hello Lisa! The Force is strong with you for asking such a great question about a truly amazing attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is certainly proving to be an exciting and very popular experience for Guests! This attraction will have you immersed in what feels more like a Star Wars mini-adventure than theme park attraction. I had the opportunity to be a part of this awe-inspiring experience last month and I cannot wait to go back!

    The best advice that I can give in getting to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is to arrive to Disney's Hollywood Studios early.  Closely follow the Disney Parks Calendar for theme park-opening times as these are subject to change. Once you scan your MagicBand to enter Disney's Hollywood Studios, use your My Disney Experience mobile app to "Join a Boarding Group." If Boarding Groups are still available, you will be assigned to a Boarding Group number. Be sure that your notifications are turned on as you will receive a notification when your Boarding Group number can report to experience this most amazing journey through a galaxy far, far away!

    Best wishes for a great experience! Remember to arrive early!
