Disneyland, Disney World announce opening dates for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attractions

You may have sensed a great disturbance in the Force the other day, but don’t worry — it was a good one.

On Thursday, the Disney Parks Blog quietly announced the official opening dates of its upcoming Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attractions at both Disney World and Disneyland.

Disney guests will traverse the corridors of a Star Destroyer and join an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance – including a faceoff with Kylo Ren – when Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens Dec. 5, 2019, at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Jan. 17, 2020, at Disneyland Resort in California. At 14 acres each, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland, now open, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, opening Aug. 29, 2019, is Disney’s largest single-themed land expansion ever.

“We’re opening Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Dec. 5 at Walt Disney World Resort,” the blog post reveals of the attraction’s debut, which will come just a little over three months after Disney World’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land opens to guests on Aug. 29.

“If [Dec. 5] sounds familiar, many of our fans will recognize it as Walt Disney’s birthday,” the post added. “What better way to honor the ultimate storyteller than by introducing the most immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined in a Disney Park[?]”
