Using Standby Queue for Rise of the Resistance | Tips & Tactics

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is no doubt one of the most ambitious and popular attractions that Disney Imagineering has ever created.

In this story, we will cover everything all the changes to Rise of the Resistance since switching over to a standby queue.

This way we would avoid lines potentially 5+ hours long and make it much more pleasant for guests to experience.

Why Did This Ride Stop Using the Virtual Queue?

Since using the standby queue, the average wait times for Rise of the Resistance have been approximately 83 minutes at any given time during the day.

How Long is the Wait Now with Standby Line?

Many people are going to rope drop Rise of the Resistance since logically it would seem that this is the best way to ride it now with a standby queue.

Rope Dropping Rise of the Resistance

When we rope dropped Rise of the Resistance, Hollywood Studios opened at 9:00 am that day to the general public, and at 8:30 am for guests using Early Theme Park Entry.

The day that we went the crowds weren’t too bad and took the shortcut and sprinted past the ABC Commissary.

Almost every time we show up the start of the line is in a different spot. As long as you are heading toward Galaxy’s Edge and follow the crowd, you will find the entrance to the line.

This attraction obviously is the most popular in Hollywood Studios and there are cast members stationed about every 30ft or so.
