We have a party of 19 coming to Disney 7/10-17. We have 3 days set for HS. Do you have suggestions on how to get all of us on Rise of the Resistance?
Welcome to the Forum community!
Your large party will not diminish your chances for a Boarding Group. In April, a Liner secured a BG for a party of 18.
As long as all of you are linked in My Disney Experience, just blow through the boarding group process and don’t worry about who is selected. If everybody doesn’t get checked you can go to guest services and get the missing people added.
Use the instructions that @ryan1 linked. They really do work! In June, we got BG 1 on one day and BG 7 on the other. We didn’t even practice that much, just enough to be familiar and make sure people knew what to tap (and not to pause to read anything!).
We did have 5 of our 7 party members trying. Highly recommend at least a couple try, just in case of anything wonky like an ill-timed notification popping up or whatever.
One point of clarification - you can, but don’t have to, all be linked in one party. If you are in two parties, you may have to just wait till the second group’s BG gets called and all go in together (you can arrive any time after your BG is called - so far the end of the return window hasn’t been enforced). Or you could talk to a CM about letting you all in with the first group.
If you are all linked in one party, you will all be given the same BG automatically, and if not (due to technical issues), you can bring it up with Guest Services to resolve.
The instructions mentioned being logged into the same account. Would this be more beneficial rather than being logged into multiple accounts who have everyone properly linked?
I don’t believe it would be more beneficial, just that it is a proven option and is easier for some people to do.
All 5 in our party that were trying were each logged into their own MDE accounts, just because that was more convenient for us.
