In the post we stated that,

Rise of the Resistance is still using the Virtual Queue system. Guests entering the park must have a valid theme park reservation called a Disney Theme Park Pass. Guests wanting to ride the Rise of the Resistance attraction will need to log into My Disney Experience, Disney’s app. You have to be in the park to ride. After logging in, guests will need to select all members of their party. Each member must already be inside the park to do this. Select the “Join” button. Boarding Passes in the Virtual Queue are released at the following times: 10:00, 1:00, and 4:00.

Disney has just announced some changes to the Rise of the Resistance virtual queue. They have dropped the 4 pm time slot for releasing boarding groups. They also changed the 1 pm boarding grup to 2 pm. Guests can now attempt to access boarding group at 10 am and 2 pm daily.

Here’s what Disney had to say:

Since Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopened, we’ve received questions about why the virtual queue fills so quickly each day. 

As you’ve also heard, new health-and-safety measures include limiting theme park attendance and implementing new measures to promote physical distancing. This includes requiring extra space between groups in queues and on attraction vehicles. With all of this in mind, we are not able to accommodate as many people on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance as we could before we implemented physical distancing.

For guests with a Disney Park Pass reservation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the attraction will continue to have limited availability accessible through the My Disney Experience app virtual queue. Starting Friday, July 24, guests will have an opportunity at either 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. to join the virtual queue. These two opportunities are intended to give guests more flexibility in their planning, and are also a way to further support physical distancing.
