Disney's Rise of the Resistance ride debuts at Disneyland Park in California on 17JAN, 2020 as part of the second phase of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the 14-acre land that opened in MAY 2019. The attraction opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida in DEC 2019.

“Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is epic, immersive storytelling on a massive scale—and our Imagineers have created an attraction that sets a new bar for theme park experiences,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. 

“Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance puts guests at the heart of their very own Star Wars adventure, and is the most advanced, action-packed attraction Disney has ever created.”

Rise of the Resistance brings guests into the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance, including a faceoff with Kylo Ren. The journey takes guests aboard a full-size transport shuttle and then into a nearby Star Destroyer. 

The attraction uses multiple ride systems working together to create a seamless story on a cinematic scale. 

Guests will need to sign up for a virtual queue to access the new attraction. They must be inside Disneyland Park with their tickets scanned to obtain a boarding group in the virtual queue.
