When it comes to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, there’s no better place for a Star Wars fan to go than Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
In Walt Disney World, Hollywood Studios is the Disney Park to visit for a glimpse of Planet Batuu, where Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lies.
This Star Wars area houses character meet and greets, as well as two majorly immersive attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
While both of these attractions are interactive and immersive, Rise of the Resistance is on a totally different level and truly takes Guests into the world of Star Wars.
The attraction begins where each attraction begins: a waiting queue. However, as Guests get closer to the actual ride, the queue becomes more immersive as Empire officers line them up, acting coldly.
We won’t spoil the entire attraction, but Guests enter a shuttle, and once they emerge, they find that they’ve truly been transported to another world.
But for these unlucky Guests, Rise of the Resistance was so unruly that it broke down on them three times in a row:
Rise of the Breakdown: Our 1st time.It broke and bumped our LL. It came back up and had a short standby so we saved our LL. It broke down when we were in line. Got through the shuttle 1 min in. It broke down again. Stayin positive, great scenery, saw the shuttle that they had us skip yesterday!

It’s not uncommon for an attraction to break down or require maintenance, but Rise of the Resistance is easily one of Walt Disney World’s most popular rides!
Preventing this attraction from deteriorating should be a top priority. But unfortunately, fans and frequent Guests alike can confirm that this ride is constantly breaking down or experiencing other interruptions.
Hopefully, Disney will step in to prevent this ride from going under for good. Until then, may the force be with this attraction!
