Despite Walt Disney World Resort entering its “slow season,” where crowds tend to be lighter, there are specific attractions that continue to draw massive crowds and result in incredibly long wait times. One such attraction that has become a must-visit for Star Wars fans and thrill-seekers alike is Rise of the Resistance.

Rise of the Resistance is an immersive and epic adventure set in a galaxy far, far away. It is located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, one of the four theme parks within Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. From the moment guests step foot into Star Wars Galaxy Edge, they are transported into the heart of the Resistance, caught in the midst of an intense battle between the First Order and the heroic Resistance fighters.

However, even the most dedicated fan might be turned away by this line!

Wait Time Surges Despite Smaller Crowds

The enduring allure of Rise of the Resistance can be attributed to its seamless integration of cutting-edge technology, spellbinding storytelling, and the chance to embark on an unforgettable journey into the heart of the beloved Star Wars universe. Nestled within Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this attraction has become a must-do for many theme park visitors.

As guests join the queue, they are transported to the planet Batuu, specifically in the midst of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. The attention to detail is impeccable as they find themselves immersed in the sights and sounds of a galactic conflict. With the anticipation building, patrons eagerly await their chance to join forces with iconic characters and fight alongside them in the ultimate struggle for freedom.

However, today it seems that the conflict was less on the ride and more on the line. Fans were shocked to see a 305-minute long line at the attraction. Waiting five hours for Rise of the Resistance is uncharacteristically long, especially during the Resort’s slow season.

According to some fans, the reason for the long line has to do with several closures of the ride during the day.

An Iconic Ride Pleases Fans

The sheer scale and complexity of the Rise of the Resistance ride is truly a marvel of modern imagination. As visitors traverse through the attraction, they encounter a wide array of awe-inspiring sights, from a bustling Resistance base to the menacing presence of a life-size Star Destroyer. The seamless blend of practical effects, state-of-the-art animatronics, and breathtaking projections create an illusion so immersive that one can’t help but momentarily forget the world outside. For many Disney Park fans, the quality of the Disney experience makes a long wait like this one worth it.
