Not such a long time ago, in a themed land far, far away (unless you live in or near Florida)…

The hype for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ is over. But there has been an awakening at Disney World. Construction on Batuu’s second signature attraction Star Wars: Rise of The Resistance is complete, and the attraction is now open to all.

Meanwhile, visitors who have already braved Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run are encouraged to return to the faraway galaxy to help the Resistance battle the relentless First Order. Those who have yet to visit Galaxy’s Edge are also being asked to join the fight!

6. About The Ride

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a massive attraction. But it’s perhaps also one of the most complex in Disney World. With four interconnecting ride systems that combine a trackless journey, a walk-through, a simulator and a drop, you’ve never experienced anything quite like it.

From start to finish the attraction is also bursting with life. State-of-the-art Audio-Animatronics, impressive set pieces and holographic technology await. And to add that finishing touch, there’s also the gloriously iconic score composed by the legendary John Williams himself.

5. It’s More Than Just A Ride

While the likes of impressive Audio-Animatronics, set pieces, actors and scores help bring an attraction to life, it would be nothing without an engaging story to thread all of those things together. And it wouldn’t be a ‘Star Wars’ attraction without high stakes either.

The Resistance need your assistance. Head over to Black Spire Outpost and undertake a secret mission. But when you’re captured by a First Order Star Destroyer, where you’ll meet Kylo Ren and his First Order Troopers, don’t worry – you’ll have the likes of Rey and BB-8 on your side!

4. The Environment Is Out Of This World

To describe the attraction’s environment and all its detail as anything short of striking would be punishable by a drop into a sarlac! As you traverse the varied path of this complex attraction, you’ll be immersed into settings made famous by Disney’s sequel trilogy.

Marvel as gargantuan AT-ATs tower over you in the dark, and as legions of First Order Troopers assemble for battle. You’ll be caught up in battle yourself, witness epic space fights and even meet Rey in hologram-form, as well as General Hux and Kylo Ren in the flesh!
