Now it’s time to strap yourselves in and celebrate May the 4th with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! These are the #DisneyMagicMoments you’re looking for …


  • We were at the Disneyland California 1 day before they closed for the Pandemic. We got a chance to experience the Resistance and where so amazed by it we could not stop talking about it. We literally were changed after riding the ride. Great job Disney Imaginears!!!

  • Was on this twice in Feb with my kids. This is not a ride, it’s an Experience that has no equal.

    Disney – simply the Best in the business.

    One word of warning though: if it’s a very crowded park day, there is a decent chance you will NOT get a time slot in the Virtual Queue when it goes live at 8am (and is a cellphone “log-in free-for-all” like you’ve never seen). Be prepared for a disappointment (it happened our first time, we were successful the other 2 days).

  • March 2021. Twenty of us. Hope we can get in :-).

  • Can’t wait!! See ya real soon!! 😁

  • My son and his wife experienced this attraction in February and loved it!!! I am looking forward to going on it when WDW reopens.

  • This ride was the highlight of our recent trip to Disney World. I was just blown away by how immersive it was. Even the process of having to get to Hollywood Studios before it opened to have a chance to get a boarding group was a really fun experience. We were lucky enough to get to do it on two different days. Loved it!

  • Bucket list material!

  • I was fortunate to go on it 3 times before they had to close. It is worth going over and over.

  • Been a Star Wars nut since the very beginning, and cannot wait to do this ride!

  • We are going to wdw 8/10 (with any luck) can’t wait to see it!

  • That sounds so cool im very proud of what disney has accomplished.

  • I tried to see this in February but was not able to. I cannot wait for DISNEY WORLD to reopen so I can try again, looks amazing!!! Stay safe
