    do you have to get special tickets for Star Wars

    Bright suns, Mike! Adventure awaits in a galaxy (not too) far, far away! There are really two parts to this answer. So, like a Jedi to his Padawan, I’ll show you the way.

    Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park! Guests wishing to visit this stunningly awesome Disney Parks achievement only need a valid theme park ticket and a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios! 

    Now, there are two attractions located inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The first is Millenium Falcon - Smugglers Run! Yep, Disney Imagineering made it possible for us to board the Corellian freighter and take the controls! To experience this attraction, Guests need to wait in a traditional standby line. It’s worth the wait!

    The other amazing attraction in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! I can best describe this attraction as an 18-minute mini-Star Wars movie starring you! To experience this attraction, Guests need to have an assigned boarding group. Guests can secure a boarding group assignment at two times during the day - 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM. To secure a boarding group, you’ll need to open your My Disney Experience app.

    Once in your My Disney Experience app, tap the home icon (the little house at the bottom of your screen). Then tap the tile that states, “Virtual Queues.” Then tap “Join Virtual Queue.” The screen for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will appear. Refresh that page at either 6:59:59 AM or at 12:59:59 PM. As soon as the word “Join” appears on the screen, tap it fast and follow the prompts!

    One final tip from this Disney Parks Jedi...you do not have to be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios to secure a boarding group assignment at 7:00 AM. However, you must be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios to secure a boarding group assignment at the 1:00 PM release. May the Force be with you!
