If they run this in WDW in September, Im hoping the mobile networks or park WiFi can cope with everyone on the app at 6am.

I like the idea of getting a time to come back, so I dont have to queue, other than the long entry queue.

Sounds like people may already be looking for ways around it. Perhaps go there, pick up a time slot, then leave and go elsewhere.

It will be interesting to know if it picks up someone being in the park, as oppose to outside in the queue booking a time slot.

Surely it will know by people scanning their magic bands into the park

As for the booking outside part, I go in November and was just thinking that. Have a day chilling by the pool, join the boarding group from the hotel, go to HS in the evening. Job done.

If I was in a hotel that was hooked up with the cable cars, i'd just get the ride there, join the queue and get the cable car back to the hotel. Then go back for like 4pm and spend the late afternoon/evening in the park

Even though SWGE in Disneyland has already been open for a month.

Disneyland's 'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' Crowds Reach Capacity Within 20 Minutes on Opening Day

hollywoodreporter/he...ng-day-1220568

A small number of people lined up from 3am according to their tweets. Although seems most arrived around 6am for an 8am opening.

I am sat at home and just looked on the disneyland app and it says that the estimated land wait is early afternoon. So as other reports are that all entries had gone they must be releasing some each hour at its 10am LA time currently.
Now I'm sure your asking how can i do this from home. On my android phone i have installed fake GPS and then set the location to disneyland. After doing this i can goto the join boarding group. But as i don't have a ticket to scan I can't go any further. So I can not test if they do a check to see if the ticket holder has actually gone thought the turnstiles. It would be good if someone who is in Anaheim with tickets could possibly test that.

It will also turn the rest of HS into a holding pen for SW fans before they called up.
The first 20,000 get a boarding pass the next 55,000 stand about HS swiping their phones and spending $s and rest stand outside in the heat. Crowd control!

I suspect though this is system WDW is going to use unless it totally fails at Disneyland.
If it was a virtual queue, would it stop you riding anything else in HS. I'm trying to determine if all the rider at HS will have massive standby lines whilst people are waiting for their time to return to galaxy edge. Is that how it could work?

Cheers all.

I believe it's meant to work differently to the Fastpass system so you could probably be using Fastpass reservations while waiting. But yes otherwise people can just queue up for the other rides.

God help us all, the park will surly be near capacity and so standby lines will be well long
