Significant update: There are a bunch of reports that you now may only have one hour to get back to the ride as opposed to two. The app will tell you which with your boarding group information.

^ That could make it problematic park hopping or trying to fulfill a dining reservation.

I was of the mindset that I wasn't leaving Hollywood Studios until I got on the ride, but I did get lucky with two good boarding groups (62 and 10).
Top 3 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland)
Top 3 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce

Hmm...don't totally love that. Will wait for confirmation.

Are they still doing the boarding passes? Anyone been lately? Our family is going in April and I'm hoping they've got a better solution by then. We'll see I guess. I really don't want to have to explain to my wife and kid that we have to be at Hollywood Studios at 6am so we can ride ROR. Ugh

They are but they’re often opening later. Today they opened at 8am.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I had a 1 hour boarding pass Sunday in California when we were group 107, called around 8pm when Disneyland closed at 11pm.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

And on Sunday they opened at like... 7:30 AM. It's rather inconsistent.

It's an early day for sure, but the park becomes more than reasonable after, like, 9 AM, and you can park-hop if you wish (though you have to keep an eye on your boarding group, since you only have 1 hour to return). I've gone twice now and have not been disappointed either time.

Yesterday was the first 8AM opening but (highly subject to change because they were supposed to start later openings weeks ago and then switched the hours) it seems to be a pretty standard thing going forward.
