    Rise of the Resistance - do you have to be in the park before you can add self to queue? Says queue opens @7 but park opens @9. How does that work? Staying @ Pop Century

    Hello there, Cristina! Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and allowing us to help you plan your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Are you ready to begin your very own adventures in a galaxy far, far away during your summer vacation to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? Guests are invited to travel to the planet of Batuu where they will explore the Black Spire Outpost. Here, you will be able to do such things as shop among the eclectic bazaar, sample local cuisine, and even pilot the Millennium Falcon on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

    I also highly recommend experiencing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, if possible! This groundbreaking attraction transports Guests into the fight between the Resistance and the First Order in a wholly immersive way! Currently, Guests will need to join the virtual queue before experiencing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. You may do so by opening the My Disney Experience app on your smartphone at one of the distribution times and selecting “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue” on the home screen. You will then be able to view the status of the virtual queue and the next steps you can take to join it. 

    At this time, Guests may join the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at either 7:00 am or 1:00 pm. This gives you two opportunities to potentially gain access to the virtual queue. For the 7:00 am time period, you do not have to be inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios so it will be perfectly fine for you to join the virtual queue right from your Disney Resort hotel! However, you will need to be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios if you intend on joining during the 1:00 pm time slot. So, you will need to keep this in mind if you intend on attempting to join during either time period! 

    I hope this information assists you in planning your summer vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as well!
