With it’s recent opening and popularity Disney wants to ensure that as many guests as possible to have the opportunity to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Hollywood Studios has announced that they will be giving guests the opportunity to join a backup boarding group.
According to the My Disney Experience app, if boarding groups have reached capacity for the day, and once boarding groups 1-120 have been called, and if there is additional capacity for more riders to enjoy the attraction based on numerous factors throughout the day including down time, guests will have the opportunity to join a backup boarding group. If this was to happen, backup boarding groups 121 and above will be called.
As always, guests are reminded that capacity is limited, and that joining a boarding group does not guarantee entry to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Most days since opening all boarding groups are gone by 9am.
