    Hi there, i was wondering for our trip to disney world in August if there was any news on the new Rise of the resistance ride coming to fast pass or some sort of stand by line? As we dont know what time to arrive to the park. Many thanks

    Bright suns, Freya!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.

    Are you ready to live your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge?  The highlight of your visit to a galaxy far, far away is sure to be the epic new attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  This attraction, which puts guests right in the middle of a climactic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, is unlike anything we have ever experienced before.  As such, the procedure for accessing this attraction also differs from what we are used to.

    Currently, a virtual queue system with boarding groups is being utilized for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  It is recommended that all guests wishing to experience this attraction enter Disney's Hollywood Studios before the park opens in the morning.  At the official park opening time, guests can use their My Disney Experience mobile app to request a boarding group.  They will then be notified through the app when it is their boarding group's turn to experience the attraction. 

    We have not heard how long this virtual queue system will be in place.  I would recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements so that you know how to access the attraction at the time of your visit.  Whether you need to request a boarding group or enter a standby line, I think a good rule of thumb is to arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios around an hour before the park is scheduled to open.  Park hours are adjusted frequently, so be sure to double-check the opening time before you arrive.

    I have some good news for you if you were hoping to take the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy for a spin.  FastPass+ will be available for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run beginning on February 19, 2020.  Be sure to check out the adventure that some of my fellow Panelists recently had aboard the Falcon.

    As you get ready to travel to Batuu, you might also want to take a look at these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for making the most of your Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge visit.  If you have any additional questions, please stop back again.
