9 Facts About Disney World’s New Rise of the Resistance Attraction
Today marks the official dedication ceremony for the newest attraction at Walt Disney World- Star Wars Rise of the Resistance located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Our MickeyBlogger will be on the scene all day bringing you the latest news and updates! In the meantime, we thought we’d share with 9 awesome facts we know about the ride so far!
Imagineers Have Called It Disney’s Most Ambitious Project To Date – Disney is hailing it as a massive attraction with multiple ride systems unlike anything ever experienced at the theme parks before!
Come Face to Face With Kylo Ren- The ride takes guests inside a Star Destroyer and face to face with one of Star Wars most formidable baddies. Disney describes it as a “harrowing and thrilling adventure that blurs the line between fantasy and reality!
“Massive Attraction” With Lots of Tricks Up Its Sleeve – One of the most incredible aspects of the ride is that Imagineers have incorporated multiple ride systems to take guests convincingly into the middle of a battle between the Empire and the Resistance.
Height Requirements – Young Padawans must be at least 40″ tall to ride.
Appropriate for All Ages – Provided you meet the height requirements Disney says the thrill ride is appropriate for all ages. However it does feature small drops, loud noises and dark areas!

No Fastpasses – As of now, Rise of the Resistance along with its sister-ride Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run are not available as part of Disney’s Fastpass system.
Know When To Go – On opening day (Thursday, December 5th), Hollywood Studios will be open from 8 am – 10 pm. However, we here at MickeyBlog recommend getting to the theme park nice and early as lines will be LONG!
Speaking of Long Lines – Just to give you a sense of crowd levels, when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge first opened back in August, the new land reached capacity within an hour. At that time the wait for Smuggler’s Run came in at a whopping 5 hrs long!
