Disneyland Celebrates Opening of 'Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance'

We just got a first look at Disneyland‘s new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride and we’ve got to say – it’s amazing!

The highly anticipated attraction officially opened its doors on Friday (January 17) at the park in Anaheim, Calif.

While fans lined up starting in the early hour of the morning, we got a special sneak peek at the ride the day before doors were open to the public!

The brand new ride marks Disney’s most ambitious and immersive attraction to date and arguably tops the classic Star Tours ride in Tomorrowland and the more recent Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride.

On Rise of the Resistance, you’re part of the Resistance on a mission to escape from the First Order and their leader Kylo Ren. One of Disney’s longest ride yet, the full experience for this epic ride clocks in at around 15 minutes as it takes you through several immersive scenes to a final ride sequence at the end.

Fans begin the ride in a resistance transport ship before getting captured by a First Order Star Destroyer ship. There, you are met by First Order officers who whisk you away to a very claustrophobic detention room before you are rescued by resistance fighters who break you out. The resistance transport whizzes through the First Order destroyer as you make your way to an escape pod.

The ride marks the completion ‘Galaxy’s Edge’ located inside Disneyland Park, joining Disney World in Florida which opened ‘Rise of the Resistance’ a few weeks ago.

Overall, the ride is an incredible feat of Disney Imagineering’s team, showcasing their amazing accomplishments and innovations. It’s not one to miss!

Be sure to check out ‘Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance’, now open at Disneyland in California.
