Starting next week, you won't need to rush over to Disney's Hollywood Studios first thing in the morning to try for a spot in the Star Wars Rise of the Resistance queue anymore.
The Walt Disney World Resort today announced a change in the procedures for the wildly popular attraction's virtual queue. Starting November 3, the virtual queue will open at 7am for ticket holders and annual passholders who hold a Disney Park Pass reservation to Disney's Hollywood Studios that day. Virtual queue reservations are made through Walt Disney World's official app, so you should link all tickets for people in your party before trying to get a spot in the queue. But you will not need to be physically present inside the park's gates to attempt to enter the virtual queue, as before.
Disney will continue to hold a second chance opportunity for Star Ware Rise of the Resistance virtual queue spots, at 2pm each day. You will need to be present inside Disney's Hollywood Studios to attempt to get a spot in the queue at 2pm, however.
Either way, your chances at getting Star Wars Rise of the Resistance have gotten better, as Disney has increased the ride's capacity by adding a clear barrier between the rows on the main ride vehicle, allowing Disney to seat more riders on it.
But if you don't get one of the coveted virtual queue spots, or you're not visiting Walt Disney World anytime soon, or you just want to re-live the experience on one of the world's top theme park attractions again, we've got you:
