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 diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
