    Is top of the world open yet for DVC members Is rise to resistance still call in at 7am the day you want to book the ride?

    "Welcome home," Marianne and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Marianne, Top of the World Lounge is one of my favorite spots for relaxing and enjoying the ambience of the Walt Disney World Resort. Unfortunately we don't yet have a date as to when this space might reopen, but I'll be wishing on a star that it's very soon! Please keep a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog as Magical announcements tend to pop up there first.

    Now, Marianne, since we're talking about some of my favorite things, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance would surely make the list. This is attraction is out of this galaxy and always has me on the edge of my seat! Marianne, if you want to join the Rebel cause and defeat the First Order, you have two options: the traditional stand-by queue or Lightning Lane access. Please note that the virtual queue (or boarding groups) are no longer active for this attraction.

    Marianne, if this is a "must-do" for your family and you don't want spend time in line, you're welcome to purchase Lightning Lane access through your My Disney Experience App. Disney Resorts Collection hotel guests can begin making purchases at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit.

    If you'd like to save a little green (of course for more DOLE Whips later in the trip), you can use Disney Genie to monitor wait times for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and jump in line when it best fits into your day.

    Marianne, I hope this helps as you're planning out your next Walt Disney World Resort adventure. Before you arrive, make sure to read all about the 50th anniversary celebrations and Disney Genie. Best wishes for a pixie dusted stay. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions!
