Anyone who’s visited Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios will tell you that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is one of the most impressive feats in theme park history. The level of immersion is truly unlike anything Guests have seen before.
However, there is one thing that can take the magic out of this heavily-themed land in an instant: the main attraction constantly breaking down.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is home to two major attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Both of these rides are heavily themed, giving Guests the chance to truly step into the Star Wars universe and live out the galactic fantasy they’ve always dreamed of.
But it can’t be denied that out of the two, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is the most impressive. In all honesty, it may be the most remarkable attraction in Walt Disney World history. This attraction’s level of illusion and immersion is masterful, and it has Guests wondering if they’re still on Earth or if they’ve really traveled to Planet Batuu.
The only drawback to having an intricate attraction with so many moving parts is that it breaks down easily and often. This morning was no different.
Upon Hollywood Studios’ opening this morning, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance was listed as ‘Temporarily Closed’ on the Walt Disney World mobile app. This attraction was down for approximately an hour, disappointing Guests who had entered the Disney Park as early as possible to beat the lines for this attraction.
At the time of this article’s publication, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is up and running again. But it’s only a matter of time before this impressive yet delicate ride goes down again.
