Date for Opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Announced

We are all anxiously awaiting the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World.  The themed land has already opened at Disneyland and has been extremely popular.  The first phase of the opening only included 1 new attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Thanks to Disney Parks Blog, we have confirmation of when the 2nd new attraction for the lad, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will open at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.  The attraction is set to open at Walt Disney World Resort on December 5th, 2019.  This date is significant because it is also Walt Disney’s birthday!  This new attraction will be a great tribute to Walt since it is one of the most immersive and advanced attractions that Disney has ever created.

Per Disney Parks Blog, “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.”

Over at Disneyland Resort, the attraction is set to officially open to guests on Friday, January 17th, 2020.

Who else can’t wait to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
