One of the few disappointments regarding the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in California was that Rise of resistance, the most advanced tour of the new expansion, would not be ready in time for the great beginnings of the country. But now, the official opening dates of Disneyland and Disney World have been unveiled. These are accompanied by a nice new poster featuring Kylo Ren. Get all the details below.
Rise of resistance Dates of opening
According to DisneyParks' official blog, Star Wars: The Rise of Resistance, touted as "the most immersive and forward-thinking attraction ever imagined in a Disney park," will open for the first time at Walt Disney World. It will open its doors inside December 5, 2019, which happens to be the birthday of Walt Disney. Disneyland visitors will have to wait January 17, 2020 for the west coast version of the attraction to open. This seems like a fair compromise since the Californian visitors had a long run over the Florida park. (Anaheim's Galaxy's Edge opened May 31, and the Walt Disney World version will open August 29.)
Here is a new poster to celebrate the new opening date announcements:
Here is the official description of the attraction of the DisneyParks blog:
When he opens, Wars of the stars: Rise of the Resistance will erase the boundaries between fantasy and reality and place guests at the heart of a decisive battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa in a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a first-class star destroyer. With the help of some Resistance heroes, they escape and escape Star Destroyer, protect the secret base and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.
In January, rumors began to circulate that there would be a 28-minute, entry-exit experience, and that the attraction would house a total of 305 animatronic and droid figurines, 50 of which -100 should be Stormtroopers. There are supposedly 18 different show scenes and five different ride systems, and if you want specific details for what's in store, you can find them here.
This is a must-have attraction for Disney, which seems to have dramatically overestimated the number of people traveling to California's Galaxy's Edge in its first few months. For a family to pay the astronomical sums needed to visit the park (and buy lightsabers, droids, food, etc.), it makes sense that customers want to wait until the two main attractions are open for able to access the full experience.
