    Two RoTR questions: 1. Do all members of my party need to be inside the park in order to get a boarding group? 2. If we have an evening boarding group, can we leave the park and return for the ride? Or must we remain in the park until boarding time?

    Hi Danny!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Great questions! To answer your first question, yes, everyone wishing to obtain a Boarding Group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance must tap in the park. I was in Disney's Hollywood Studios two days ago and I mistakenly selected a friend when joining a boarding group and immediately received a message that my friend was not in the park.  I would recommend that you have all the guests in your party linked to your My Disney Experience Account under "Family & Friends" so that you can get everyone in the same boarding group. The most important tip I can give you is to arrive early to Disney's Hollywood Studios in order to join a Boarding Group. At present time, Guests have been arriving at the park one hour before park opening just to clear security bag check and to line up at the touch points. Once the park "officially" opens, you must be ready to join a Boarding Group via your My Disney Experience App. Once you receive your boarding group, you will be able to track via the My Disney Experience App your status and what boarding groups are being called.You can leave the park and return when it gets closer to your boarding group, just account for travel time and security bag check when returning. When I got my boarding group, I decided to hop on the Disney Skyliner and head over to Epcot while I waited for my boarding group to be called. Which brings me to my next tip, be sure to pack a battery charger for your mobile phone so that your phone doesn't run out of battery! I am so glad that you took the time to ask these questions. Sadly, many Guests have missed out on the opportunity to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance because they haven't familiarized themselves with the process.

    Quick Tip: You can now select Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as a FastPass+ selection! Be sure to check it out!

    Danny, thank you for giving us the opportunity to help you plan your vacation and please feel free to send me any other questions you may have!
