UPDATED: Latest Riding Options Since September 2021, guests no longer need to use the virtual queue to ride Rise of the Resistance as they did for the first 2 years of the ride’s existence.

That means no more waking up early to book a boarding group on your phone, you can get in line like for most of the other attractions.

Right now, there are 2 ways to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney World:

1. Standby Queue  2. Individual Lightning Lane

Standby Queue – This is the traditional way that most theme park attractions work. You get in line and you wait there until it’s your turn to ride.

Individual Lightning Lane – This is a paid replacement for FastPass and lets each guest purchase a one-time pass that lets them skip the standby queue and get on the ride without much waiting.
