A Critical Change to Disney’s Virtual Queue Process
There is a small change to Disney’s virtual queue process; however, it is a critical change. If you want a boarding group for rides such as Rise of the Resistance, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, and WEB SLINGERS, then pay attention!
Scott Gustin announced on Twitter that you can now confirm your party one hour before boarding groups open in the Disney apps. This is important while trying to join a virtual queue in Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
NEW: Disney made another small change to the virtual queue process at WDW and Disneyland.
Starting *1 hour* before the boarding group queue opens, you can now confirm your party.

Therefore, be sure to confirm your party one hour before the boarding groups become accessible. Then, as soon as the window opens, refresh your screen and click “Join.”
So, for example, if the virtual queue opens at 7:00 am, then you can confirm your party any time between 6:00 am and 7:00 am. However, you do not have to confirm your party exactly at 6:00 am.
Specific Steps for Obtaining a Boarding Group
Accordingly, here are the new steps for joining a virtual queue at Disneyland or Walt Disney World. For the sake of this example, the sample ride is Rise of the Resistance.
- First, go to the home screen of the Disneyland app or the My Disney Experience app.
- You will see “Rise of the Resistance.”
- At any time between 6:00 and 7:00 am, click “Join.”
- It will take you to another screen, so click “Continue.”
- Then, back out of that second screen. The second screen only shows up one time.
- Then, click “Join” again.
- Next, click “Join Group.”
- Now, you are taken to the screen where you can select your party. Choose the individuals hoping to join the virtual queue.
- As soon as it hits 7:00 am, refresh your screen.
- Finally, click “Join” once again, and you hopefully have a boarding group.
As a reminder for such a critical change, do not use Disney’s Wi-Fi while obtaining a boarding group. Also, try not to be around other people, so your process is not bogged down.
Additionally, assign only one person in your family with the task of getting boarding groups. Otherwise, you will compete against each other.
We at MickeyBlog hope you are able to grab those coveted boarding groups for Disney’s most popular attractions. May the force be with you!
