    Hi! We'll be staying off property this trip. Will Rise of the Resistance still be using boarding groups on 1/13? I just want to make sure we get to the park early enough. Also, does the Jedi Training Academy get filled up super fast in the morning?

    Bright Suns, BreAnna!

    Although Resistance forces are gaining strength, we have yet to obtain completely secure intelligence on First Order movements. Based on our latest information, we anticipate that you will need to join a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance during the dates of your visit to Batuu. Be sure that you have downloaded the Mobile App, linked your tickets, and that everyone in your party is linked to your account prior to attempting to access the boarding group link. Also, be certain to check the planetary hours for the dates of your visit. I strongly recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to opening to be sure you can disembark your transport and clear security prior to the opening time. On our visit last week, opening times were at 6:00 a.m. on one day and 7:00 a.m. on another day. Boarding groups were at capacity shortly after opening time on both days. Be early and join a boarding group as soon as the link is accessible. 

    Once you have secured a boarding group, I recommend checking with one of our operatives to verify that sign-up is open for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. When our younglings have braved the training, we were able to sign-up a few minutes prior to or right at opening time. Sign-ups can fill quite early, so do secure your spot(s) as soon as possible. Be certain that your selected time fits with your other plans for the day, particularly given that we have been instructed to arrive 30 minutes prior to the training time to get prepared. As soon as possible, head over to fly on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Should you need flight crew training, rest assured that Hondo Ohnaka will provide it. Transport lines for the Millennium Falcon typically get longer during the day as more travelers make their way to Batuu. 

    BreAnna, I sense that the Force is with your family and that you have the courage to join the Resistance. Listen carefully; find the Gatherers at Savi's workshop. Though I must keep the details secret for fear the First Order may intercept this communication, the Gatherers can help you solidify your union with the Force. Stay vigilant and be on the lookout for other potential Resistance fighters at Oga's Cantina. Any information you can obtain is vital. For now, I am off-world. I trust, however, that our friends in the Resistance will guide your journey when you arrive.

    In solidarity,
