ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — One of the most popular and innovative attractions at Walt Disney World is changing the way guests will get to experience it.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, located within Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, will pause its virtual queue system beginning Sept. 23 and instead use a standby queue.
This marks the first time the groundbreaking attraction will use a standby queue since it opened in late 2019.
“Virtual queues continue to be helpful with attraction access, merchandise launches, grand openings and more, and guests should continue to check the My Disney Experience app for the latest on how we’re using virtual queues across Walt Disney World Resort including its potential use at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at a later date, or from time to time,” Disney said in a blog post.
The change comes just ahead of the resort’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
