Description And Comments

The First Order recently set up on Batuu looking for some unknown thing, and about a week ago the Resistance showed up too. As always, the Resistance is looking for recruits and you can help. The Rise of the Resistance attraction begins in the queue with guests following through an ancient cavern that has been repurposed by the Rebels and strung haphazardly with lights and cables.

As you move through the line you start to hear rumblings of an approaching legion of the First Order. The crowd is broken into groups of around 50 people and moved into a communication area where the unendingly-cute BB-8 greets you and shows you a hologram message from Rey herself. Doors open revealing Poe Dameron and his famous black X-wing fighter as you board a shuttle piloted by Nien Nunb, known for helping Lando Calrissian blow up the Death Star in Return of the Jedi. Of course, this is still Disney, so the shuttle trip goes badly. You are caught by a tractor beam and exit the shuttle into the hangar of a Star Destroyer: a massive space filled with a TIE fighter and many, many stormtroopers. And yes, you read that correctly, you physically exit the first ride vehicle and start walking again.

The group is broken up into smaller groups and they are let to detention cells. From the cell you learn a very valuable piece of information just as you are broken free. Now you board a trackless vehicle that takes you through the remainder of the ride, beneath giant AT-ATs, and into an encounter with Kylo Ren.
