I have allocated two days at HS just to be able to ride this. I technically have four chances with two daily timeslots.
Any tips on when to log into MDE? Right at 7am or 1pm, Two minutes before and keep refreshing, etc?
I'd want to be logged into mde a few minutes before. At that point you can choose between the timed "Join" button and the refresh method

I have never done the BG before.

Assume I get "in", do I then have time to select the four in my party? should I remove other people in my party from a previous trip (who are not coming) so I can just hit "select all"?

When you go in, anybody in your friends and family with a DHS reservation that day should be auto selected. You just click to move on.

Join the BG immediately! You have a matter of seconds, so don't think about anything but pushing that button. You are assigned a BG number; can't select. All party members associated with your account are automatically added, so no need to find a "select all" button.
Edit: what pdude81 said!

Here is a TP article. Basically many push the "Join" button just before 7 and like that way best. Others click join earlier and then refresh right around 7 until the next option shows up.

 
Hey there everyone, We have 3 families going for a total of 11 people. I have access to everyone’s plans. Is it best to try for all of us at same time or let each family do their own? Wasn’t sure if there was a limit on numbers per group or not. Thank you so much.

You should be okay but with bigger groups tend to be trickier. You might get a late return time.

When your Probe Droid takes a vacation right in the middle of busy season. Hard to get good help to keep the Resistance scum in line.

Did you use wifi or data? Did you log into MDE and hit "join" before 7am and the refresh repeatedly? Tell us your secrets! lol
Lots of talk on the boarding group thread. I have a 100% success rate doing the below, with 35+ rides post covid.

This is what I do. I pull this screen up at about 6:59:30.

I usually open the app a couple mins before to make sure I'm logged in. I don’t press join virtual queue until I see my clock on my phone strike 7, and then I press it immediately. From there, the join group button is already available. Select it, let the friends and family load, and then tap the join group as fast as possible. While the family and friends are spinning I usually start tapping the bottom where the button will be.

@disneygeek90 thanks for the tips. When my family list pops up, is there a "select all" button or do I need to click on each one?

I have two HS park days earmarked, so that is technically four chances to ride this.

Also, resort wifi or cellular data?
