My Disney Experience Glitch Allows Guests to Book Boarding Groups Without Even Being at Walt Disney World


Today there has been a glitch with the My Disney Experience App that has a lot of people upset.

Currently, if you want to ride the new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction, you need to have your entire party scanned in and be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios by the opening of the park to attempt to get a Boarding Pass.

Today, people could get passes even if they weren’t in the park and some got boarding passes from hundreds or thousands of miles away!

WOW! They were gone that fast! The park opened at 8 AM

Here’s what I don’t understand. If they were gone that quickly, how would people know to try and do this from hours away and have the passes gone in 2 seconds? It isn’t something most people would sit at home and try to do? So was it 2 seconds?

Yeah I would NOT want to be those Cast Members today. May the Force be with you!

People line up an hour or more before the park opens, to get in and wait for the chance to get a boarding pass. This has been going on for weeks.

Here’s a hint. Since the boarding passes are through the app you don’t want to use the park’s wi-fi as everyone else is using it too. Also, everyone runs for either Galaxy’s Edge or Toy Story Land to line up. There are thousands of people around you trying to get a boarding pass too. You are better off hanging back in an uncrowded area to try and get your pass. Of course a lot of people in the crowds get them, but it might just be the bit of edge you need.

I’m sure there are a lot of mad people right now! I don’t blame them. It’s already hard to get a pass to begin with and then you follow the rules and this happens on top of it.
