    Default Rise of the Resistance Question

    I will be at HS January 6. HS is now opening at 7:00am on that day. If I arrive at 6:45am, in time for opening am I likely to get a boarding pass? Does anyone know when the boarding passes typically "sell out"?

    From everything I have heard I would arrive by no later than 6 am. The boarding passes go very quickly once the park opens.

    Things have changed - boarding passes now are not distributed till published park opening time. So, while you might be able to get into the park early, the passes are available in the app - in the park at scheduled opening time. And you must be scanned in and present to get the passes in the app.

    I did read that but I was still confused. Why are people still lining up at 4am? It is my understanding that a pop up appears on your My Disney Experience App for getting the boarding pass. Do the pop ups occur in the order in which people entered the park?

    No, I believe the pop-up occurs in the app at the published opening time, for all folks who have had their passes scanned to enter HS that day. If 2000 people have entered and are online, you could have all of them accessing the app for boarding passes when the passes open at 7AM (or whatever opening time). The only 'ordering' is how quickly you can work the app to submit for a pass for your group.

    I would get there earlier than 15 mins prior to opening! There will be huge lines at the turnstiles, if you want to experience it (and trust me, you do!) I’d still get there at least 30 mins to an hr prior to posted opening time. I rode it twice when I was there. It’s breathtaking. When I was there beginning of Dec they were typically gone in 15 minutes (not sure now with the recent changes again though)
    Too many trips to keep track of now! Vacation WDW twice a year so any questions ask freely ☺️

    So how do you all get there that early if you are depending on the WDW shuttle buses to take you there and according to the WDW website they only begin to run 45 mins. before the park opens?

    Don't believe everything you read. Even the stuff that Disney publishes on their web site.

    The first bus to each park will arrive at the resort right around 6:30a. Those early buses will not be as frequent in the very early morning (more like every 30 min rather than the normal 20 minutes). For a park that opens at 7, or earlier, the first bus will arrive by 6, although they may begin earlier if the crowds warrant it (as was the case in Sept-Nov when DHS opened at 6 and buses started at 4:30).

    Question: If I only want to wander around the land and not ride the Star Wars rides, can I do that? Or do I still need a boarding group? At one point at Disneyland, someone said, it was so crowded they weren't even letting people in without a group. Is that happening here? I really want to see the theming, but the rides less so because of motion sickness issues.

    You do not need to be part of a boarding group to enter Galaxy's Edge. Boarding groups are only for Rise of the Resistance.

    Monkeespaw, come back and tell us how it went. I have ridden it three times now and you must be there by 7am inside the park and ready. By 7:05 there is a stream of people entering the park who become mad that the passes are all gone.

    I can understand their frustration, it is not the best system.
