Rise of the Resistance is not having a great day of operations. Although the Studios’ official opening time was 9:00 a.m. today, and Rise of the Resistance normally starts calling boarding groups at 8:30 a.m. (because the park actually opens earlier than 9:00 a.m.), Rise of the Resistance didn’t start calling boarding groups until 10:00 a.m.  And ride operations has proceeded today in fits and starts, with short, consistent delays making the graph below look like a short set of stairs, instead of a smooth, upward-sloping line.  At this pace, it’s like Rise will have its worst day of the past week, if not recent memory.
