    We will be staying at Bay Lake Tower and would love to experience Rise of Resistance at Hollywood Studios. What should be our best course of action? We won't have a car and will be relying on Disney transportation.

    Bright Suns, Darcie!

    I am so excited for you and your stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort! It is one of our top three Disney Vacation Club properties as it’s all about location, location, location! On top of that, you are going to be blown away during your transport to the Planet of Batuu. Each time I visit, I discover new things in the intergalactic hideaway, so be prepared to join the Resistance when you visit!

    To get to the intergalactic hideaway, you can use complimentary bus transportation, or my favorite ride, a Minnie Van! Buses start running approximately one hour before Park opening, and you can track them on the My Disney Experience app. If you’d prefer to make a VIP entrance, you can hail a Minnie Van via the Lyft app. Once you’ve decided on your transportation, this is how it works at the Park:

    1. Arrive at Disney’s Hollywood Studios as EARly as possible before Park opening (give yourself at least 30 minutes to get through security, so plan accordingly).

    2. Once you touch your MagicBand to the Main Entrance touchpoints, the My Disney Experience app will register your physical presence in the Parks. (You do not need to be on the Planet of Batuu, just in the Park).

    3. As soon as the registration time opens, a screen will pop up on the Front Page of the app, asking you if you would like to join the virtual queue.

    4. Accept the invitation, and you will be assigned a boarding group. (You can track current boarding groups via the app).

    5. Go and enjoy the rest of the Park! (Moms tip - head to Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run ASAP for a shorter wait time than further on in the day).

    6. Once your boarding group is ready, you will receive an alert via the app. The app will tell you to return by…such and such time. You generally have a two-hour window.

    7. Enjoy the most amazing attraction in the galaxy!

    Darcie, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. ’Til the Spire!
