    I was wondering if anyone could explain what the virtual queue is for Disney worlds galaxys edge is it to just get in and do things there or is it like a fast pass for the rides such as Smugglers run millennium falcon

    Bright suns, traveler! I am so excited for you to experience Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge this weekend! The virtual queue is a handy option that Cast Members are able to activate when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge becomes a bit too crowded. This area is a very highly anticipated addition to Disney's Hollywood Studios, so the virtual queue can help control the influx of guests to it.

    When you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios, hop on your My Disney Experience mobile app. You should find on the app's home screen status and access information for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. When you click that box, the app will be able to tell you if a virtual queue has been implemented. If it has not, then you can proceed to the land and have fun exploring. If the virtual queue has been implemented, then you will need to join a boarding group from the mobile app, as Cast Members will not allow guests to enter the land until their "boarding group" has been called. The mobile app should be able to give you an estimated time of day when your group will be called via push notification. You can then go enjoy other attractions and entertainment in the park until your boarding group is called. You will have two hours from the time you receive the boarding call to actually enter the land. You may want to check periodically for updates through the app as the virtual queue may actually be lifted at any time as demand decreases.

    Once you enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, you are free to explore the merchandise locations, attractions, and dining venues. The virtual queue merely provides guests with access to the land as available, so you will need to still queue up for the attractions and make dining or other reservations as needed. FastPass+ is not currently offered for Millenium Falcom: Smuggler's Run, but I am hoping it does in the future!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you have any others!
