Rise of the Resistance Takes Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Into a Larger World


On Friday, January 17th, 2020, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opened at Disneyland to an overwhelming response. Guests were lined up in the wee hours of the morning hoping for a chance to be among the first to experience the ambitious and highly-anticipated new ride.

Adding to the immersive environment which made its debut at Disneyland in May of 2019, Rise of the Resistance is a brand new experience for guests. Joining Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as the second attraction in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Rise of the Resistance is a groundbreaking ride that puts guests right in the middle of the action. Boarding a full-size transport shuttle and then moving onto a Star Destroyer, guests are brought face-to-face with a showdown between the First Order and the Resistance, including a battle with Kylo Ren. The ride is being touted as, “One of the most immersive, ambitious and technologically advanced experiences in Disney history,” which tells, “a seamless story on a cinematic scale.”

To be a part of the out-of-this-world experience, guests can join a boarding group in the virtual queue as long as they are in the park and have had their tickets scanned. For more information about the virtual queue, visit Disneyland.com.
