Today was the day The Rise of the Resistance opened at Walt Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge. Disney implemented the virtual queue feature this morning and all boarding groups were filled up by 8:30 AM.
However, not all who had a boarding pass got to ride today. It could be because the ride went down for an hour or so or it could be other reasons we don’t know about, whatever the reason, Disney has offered complimentary tickets according to @DisPhotography_ on Twitter

For those that had their boarding pass cancelled Disney is giving them a FastPass+ for any attraction on 12/6, including Rise of the Resistance and a complimentary one day pass with park hopper.
Wow! Disney really doesn’t want the bad press on this one. Good on them for giving these out to those who waited and didn’t get to go. That is really generous. It makes sense though, what if you used your one day ticket to visit JUST to ride this attraction and you couldn’t. So giving a ticket back so the guest could get back in is the least you could do.
I’m a bit salty though. Got stuck on the monorail, in the summer heat, with it smoking, sparking and pieces falling off. Due to a potential fire the power was completely shut off (so we had no air conditioning) After the got us out, like an hour later, we got water and a FastPass good on anything except Frozen Ever After, Mine Train or Flight of Passage. Should have held out for more I guess.
Not sure if they will continue giving these out if problems happen over the next few days. Will have to wait and see.
