It’s official! Disney has released the grand opening dates for the show-stopping Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction!
Guests on the East Coast will get to experience the attraction first, as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance officially opens on Thursday, December 5, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida. (As a reminder, Florida’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land officially opens on August 29 with Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as its only attraction.)
The attraction will open on the West Coast just a little over a month later at Disneyland in California on Friday, January 17, 2020.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is slated to be the most state-of-the-art attraction the the Walt Disney Company has ever done. The attraction will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, guests break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.
