And honestly, it’s not in a galaxy too far, far away!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened in Disneyland on May 31, with just about everything in full operation except for Rise of the Resistance, which is said to be the land’s most exciting and technologically advanced attraction.

Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 29, also without the operation of Rise of the Resistance.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will drop guests in the middle of an exciting battle between the First Order and the Resistance. They will be recruited to join Rey and General Leia Organa at a secret base and will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer along the way.

But according to Disney, they will be helped by a few heroes from the resistance. Not only will they fight to break out and escape the Star Destroyer, but they must protect the base and avoid Kylo Ren at all costs.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will officially open in Walt Disney World on Walt Disney’s birthday, December 5. And it will open on January 17, 2020 in Disneyland.

We’re excited to see what additional announcements and updates will follow!

Those dates will be here before we know it! Can you believe it?

  1. Ken, why are you so bitter against Disney? You are obviously still obsessed because you read every article every day ! Then you leave a snarky and sometimes funny comment. My advice to you is you need to make a Disney reservation ASAP! Take a vacation to Walt Disney World, it’s high time you two made up! Unless you are financially impaired, that is. Then you will have to vacation vicariously through Allears!

    1. Hey Judy,
      My last visit to WDW was in 2009. (About 30 trips and over 350 days from 1986). There were 4 mains reasons we stopped going. One was the cost. I can afford to go, but the cost is now just a rip off. So many other great places to visit for much less. Second was the crowds. It just got to a point that it didn’t matter when we went, the crowds were always oppressive. Third was the changes. We just don’t care for many of the new attractions and the overall direction that WDW has chosen to take. And fourth was the absolute ridiculous amount of planning required. Even if the urge hit me, it quickly leaves with the thought of having to start 6 months in advance and spend hours on line and on the phone. We used to sit at the dinner table and say “hey, how bout we jump in the car in the morning and head to WDW for a few days.”

      I told my wife not too long ago that I’m not sure I would go back even if it was free.

      I would love to kiss and make up with Disney (princesses only, no animal characters), but they will have to come back to me and I don’t ever see that happening. And your right, I guess I do visit WDW vicariously through Allears. I love to read about the good things happening there, but they are fewer and fewer. And when I read an article about another disappointing change, I can’t let it go. What I’ve found over the last 6 months is that even though Im the most vocal in voicing my displeasure with WDW, I’m certainly not alone.

      Some posters here think Im far too critical, but it does spark some good spirited debate and I think it has encouraged more people to join in the conversations and share their Disney thoughts (good and bad). Some of my favorite folks here are those that give it right back to me. I’ve been zinged good more than a few times.
