    I was wanting to know about how the reservation for rise of the republic works. According to the app you can signup for 7 am before the park opens. do you need anything special to get into the park before it opens?

    Hi Steve! Welcome to planDisney!

    You are going to have the best time exploring Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios in just a few days! My family loves walking around the planet Batuu and spotting all the details that make this world so unique. We discover something new every time we visit!

    The virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is accessible through the My Disney Experience mobile app at 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM (until September 22, 2021). While you need to have entered Disney's Hollywood Studios that day to snag a 1:00 PM virtual queue spot, the 7:00 AM boarding groups happen outside of the theme park and can be done from wherever you are that morning! Whether you are chowing down on breakfast at a restaurant or still relaxing in your hotel room, just have the app open and ready before 7:00 AM, then select "Join Virtual Queue," and refresh it right at 7:00 AM. This has worked for my family every time!

    Although your arrival date indicates that you will be there before the change happens, I do want to point out that beginning September 23, 2021, the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be paused and Guests will use a regular standby line to access this attraction. You can read all about this change at the link I included above.

    I hope you have the BEST vacation, Steve! Please let us know if you have any other questions. May the Force be with you!
