    It says that everyone in your party must be in the park to get in the boarding queue. But what if everyone in your party is not wanting to get on the ride(and not there) BUT is linked to your MDE app? Will it not let you in the group boarding queue?

    Bright Suns, Isa!

    I am thrilled to greet a fellow North Carolinian and welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you are doing some fierce planning to join the Resistance on Batuu!

    First, be sure that you have arranged good transport to the park and allotted enough time to clear security so that you are in the park prior to park opening. Once in the park, find a Cast member on Hollywood Boulevard and verify that the Cast member can assist if, for some reason, you cannot join a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance using your My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Only the people who intend to join you on the attraction need to be in the park with you at the time you attempt to join a boarding group. Once you click to join a boarding group, you simply select the members of your party who plan to ride. Having visited Batuu a few times now, I implore you to identify additional allies who might be willing to join the cause. Our encounters with the First Order left us more committed to represent the Force for good. Be advised that the First Order is unpredictable and the boarding group process may change by the dates of your visit. Stay alert. 

    I challenge you to consider your other plans for the visit. Determined, our girls found the secret location of Savi's Workshop and sought the guidance of a gifted Gatherer who showed us how to forge a lightsaber. We dropped in Oga's Cantina and listened to other travelers as they regaled us with tales from their galactic adventures. In the end, we accepted a challenge from Hondo Ohnaka to acquire some important cargo and fly Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. All in all, it was a good day.

    Isa, time is of the essence. We anxiously await your arrival!

    Good journey,
