Opening Dates & New Poster For Galaxy’s Edge Rise of the Resistance Ride

The official Disney Parks Blog has announced the opening dates for the Galaxy’s Edge Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride for Disneyland and Walt Disney World:

Walt Disney World: December 5, 2019
Disneyland Resort: January 17, 2020

We learned back in March that the two main attractions at Galaxy’s Edge, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Rise of the Resistance would be opening at different times at both park locations. The official launch dates for the Rise of the Resistance attraction were not provided by Disney at that time. We now know when Disney park attendees will be able to experience this brand new attraction for the first time.

The DPB also revealed a new poster for the ride.

We’ve got some exciting news to share today with the galaxy. We’re opening Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Dec. 5 at Walt Disney World Resort. If this date sounds familiar, many of our fans will recognize it as Walt Disney’s birthday. What better way to honor the ultimate storyteller than by introducing the most immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined in a Disney Park.

When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance 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, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.

As soon as work is completed at Walt Disney World, Imagineers will head back to California to complete their mission at Disneyland Resort where Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on Friday, Jan. 17.

Between now and then, we’ll have lots more to share about this immersive, multi-platform experience so keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for updates.
