    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Group was called at 8:33, scanned in at 8:39 and just got off. So fun! Thanks again for the tips in this thread!

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Also I heard someone yell “we got group 5!” as they walked past me so sounds like they gave out some earlier numbers this morning?

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Got on a bus at POR at 6:40. Got to the park at 7:13. Line I was in had a bit of a issue at the tap point so it moved slowly. Got into the park around 7:35. Waited at Animation Courtyard for a few minutes, decided I needed coffee. Still in the line at Joffrey’s now but I got boarding group 18...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I took at least 3, maybe 4 trips after FOP’s opening before I actually rode. Could never snag a FP, had no desire to wait in a 2 hour plus line and I have never been a rope drop kind of gal. Finally did rope drop for it on Easter morning 2018 because I was traveling with someone who was...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Exactly. People will do what they are going to do and organizations come up with the best strategies they can for dealing with that. The last thing Disney wants to do is call in law enforcement to get people to back off just like I never want to involve security at my organization to break up a...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    But wouldn’t these people already be out of luck if more people than the ride can accommodate had already lined up outside the gates? Let’s say they waited to open the gates and the boarding passes at 8:00 am. If the ride can only handle X amount of people in a day and X amount of people are...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    I’m sure they are working to get it up and running as quickly as possible with the thinking that they will have a pretty big problem on their hands if it is not up and operating without issue for a bit before the Riviera resort opens in mid December.

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    All the arguing about the heat situation here is silly. I think the reality here is somewhere between “if the gondola stops for 3 hours on an afternoon in July everyone on board will likely die from the heat” and “if the gondola stops for 3 hours on an afternoon in July no one will suffer any...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    It’s a little disconcerting that part of the reason for the holdup in getting everyone off was because it took them so long to identify and locate the person having a medical emergency because the gondolas are only numbered on the side and they were hard to see from the ground. That seems like a...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    It took me mustering up a good deal of courage plus two drinks at lunch to get on the Skyliner last week but I talked myself into it. For months I had been claiming I would never ever ride because I hate hovering at a height. And while I logically know that worst case scenarios are always super...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    The cabins I rode in on Monday were covered in fingerprints. It was kind of a bummer that they were already looking kind of grimy by day 2.

    They also had a CM in the walkway yelling directions “Skyway to the right! Path to Epcot resorts to the left!” to help keep things moving.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    It absolutely works both ways. I had a cabin to myself yesterday and all of a sudden could hear very clear conversations as we passed over CBR. It freaked me out a bit. 🤣I could not identify whose voices I was hearing just from looking down below but it was strange. I thought immediately of your...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Leaving Epcot now and the end of the queue is just past the temporary ticketing booth sort of at that green gate (that is always open when I come through).

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    I had a much better experience riding today - 22 minutes from entering the line at Epcot to walking off at DHS. However I overheard a CM saying the Pop Line is down for mechanical reasons and no ETA for when it will be back up.
