    Understand park hopper restricts virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance if visiting another park first, but would we be able to visit Studios in the afternoon if we are trying to ride Rise via the standby line (if it's available)? Thanks

    Bright Suns, Kim!

    I'm so happy to hEAR that you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up in December! You'll be visiting during the most wonderful time of the year - the holiday season. Not only will you be able to enjoy all of the festive fun happening all around, but all four parks will also have another reason to celebrate - Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary! The World's Most Magical Celebration begins October 1 and will last for 18 months. 

    It sounds like you're ready to visit Batuu and join the Resistance, battling the First Order in the most exciting, thrilling attraction in the galaxy! Located in the outskirts of the Black Spire Outpost, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is always looking for new recruits to help with their secret mission. 

    It was recently announced that the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance would be paused, and would begin using a traditional standby queue for the first time since the attraction opened in 2019. Guests who love choice and flexibility when planning their park days are now able to join a standby line at any time during the day for this amazing attraction. This is great news for Guests using Theme Park Tickets with the Park Hopper Option, as it allows them a chance to join the line when arriving later in the day, after starting the day at another park.

    Please note that availability of the standby queue may be limited and is subject to change without notice., and the virtual queue could be used again at a later date. It's advised that Guests check the My Disney Experience app prior to their visit to learn whether a virtual or standby queue will be required or available on the date of their visit. 

    I hope you'll get a chance to join the Resistance when you visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios during your December visit. It's a thrilling, epic adventure you won't soon forget!

    To the Spire!
