Sorry @yulilin3 I deleted my post!

Getting back on topic: What worked for us was practicing ahead of time - and also correlation is not causation but we were also in Toy Story Land when we got our BG.
Can you actually get all the way through the joining process if the group isn’t actually in the park? Really all you can do is click join and select the names, you can’t get past that can you?

Basically if you get the "wait not everyone is at the park" message that means you got through, so practicing does help

You no longer have to select the names, the purpose of practicing all the way to the "Is everyone in the park" screen is to see if you'll be fast enough. You won't be assigned a boarding group but it's good to consistently get to that screen so you know how quick your fingers will be on D-Day :)

    We are going on November 5th to Hollywood Studios. It is our only day there and have not ridden before. So this really is our only shot until next year as we had two trips this year cancelled already.

    My question is, I have read a bunch of people complaining about not being able to get a boarding group because the system doesn't recognize that everyone is in the parks.
    Is there are way to check that the system knows everyone is there prior to the 10 am release or do I have to wait until click join a boarding group to find out if I have a shot or not? At that point it is too late and I don't see arguing our case at Guest Services will achieve anything.

    There will be 5 of us that day.

    Thanks
    Earlier this week, there was a one time glitch that affected a large number of people and the glitch was on Disney's end so checking before hand wouldn't have mattered. However, you can go to the GET (blue) umbrellas before 10am to verify everyone shows in park.

    For the 2pm BG people: has anyone reported back on when their BG got on the ride? Do these BGs start immediately or is it a couple of hours later?

    It's also VERY helpful for everyone involved to practice ahead of time - my DH realized not all of us were linked to his MDE so only he and one of our daughters were showing up on his list to add.

    OK I just did the 'practice run' at literally 10AM on the dot. Got through the first 2 JOIN screens, and just as I was about to 'Select Family Members', I got a message that said Not Accepting Boarding Groups. I was literally on at 10AM on the dot (watched it go from 9:59 to 10AM--and then logged immediately on). They can't be full in literally 2 seconds, can they? Did I do everything correctly?? Or is this when the system picks up you are not in the Park, and bounces you out of the system?

    I’ve been practicing the past week and the same thing happened only today. Very worried, since we go tmr :(

    If you’d have been successful, you should get a “Not so fast- is this person in the park” screen. I’ve been practicing the last few days for our Nov trip. It seems like they’re filling in seconds. You have to be there with your finger cocked over the “Join” button just as the clock hits 7. Gah.

    So were you successful on your other practice runs this week? Wonder if it is a glitch today? When I say I was on at 10AM....I mean literally 10AM on the dot, so this is kinda scary that it books that fast. I got a little over a month to get this figured out lol. Good luck on your trip tomorrow! Please report back if you were successful

    Yes, all week it worked. Today I was right on the dot too and it was all booked up.

    Today, yes, because...I was sitting on my couch with my finger cocked over the Join button at 6:58 (California). Yesterday, I was distracted making breakfast for the dog and picked up my phone as it turned 7, and I missed it. I’m 2 for 3 this week. I get the feeling all the pressure will be on me during our trip b/c I know my sister...and she ain’t practicing!!!!!

    A quick question.......are you guys starting from the Main Screen (the one with 'Join' and 'Check Status), or do you click past that Main Screen, and wait on the 'Join Virtual Queue' page?? I started on the Main Screen, so maybe I started at the wrong part, and wasted time?

    I did a 10:00am practice run today. However, I am the only name in my 'group' so the Choose Group Members or whatever it is, doesn't apply to me. My run ended with the "Not so fast!" message, but like others upthread, I can report that the window closes in maybe ten seconds, if that, so the whole process is rather frantic. In that respect not much has changed since last January, when I sat at the curb on Sunset Blvd. tensely watching time.gov click down to zero hour.

    I did want to say that there’s an annoying delay as it figures out your party. My party, anyways.
    That is where I seemed to get held up at too........I hit the My Party screen, and then got the error message that the boarding groups were full

    I’ve tried it on wifi (we updated our system fully because of the wfh thing. It’s fast.) and cellular. I also deleted and reloaded the app. Annoying. Very best of luck to you!
