"Immersed in an epic battle between the dreaded First Order and the courage of the Resistance, what will you do?"
―Disneyland website[src]

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an upcoming attraction found at the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge themed area of Disneyland, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Walt Disney Studios Park. It will open on December 5, 2019 at Walt Disney World and on January 17, 2020 at Disneyland.


"Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a massive, multi-platform, new attraction that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced at Walt Disney World Resort… or anywhere else in the galaxy!"
―Walt Disney World website[src]

The attraction will be located in the area of Galaxy's Edge known as the ancient ruins on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost, which includes a Resistance encampment. Its entrance is marked by a turret that leads guests — acting as new recruits[1] — to a path heading into ancient caves that house a Resistance control center where they are given a mission by BB-8 and a hologram of Rey. Guests will then walk past ships including Poe Dameron's X-wing fighter and board a transport ship for the first portion of the ride.[2]


Concept art for the attraction

The ship will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer and at one point guests will appear to be inside a Star Destroyer hangar bay. The ride will partly involve a rescue that doesn't go as planned, with a hijacked First Order Fleet Transport (an eight-seat ride vehicle) being part of the rescue.[3] It will involve a battle between the First Order and the Resistance, and guests will encounter stormtroopers, AT-ATs, and Kylo Ren.[1]

Like all events portrayed in Galaxy's Edge, the ride takes place between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.[4][5]


Before the official name of the ride was revealed at Destination D 2018,[6] it had internally been given the working name "Alcatraz." It was set to open with the rest of Galaxy's Edge in both parks in 2019, and shortly thereafter in Paris. However, it was announced on March 7 that its release had been deferred to a later date as part of the park's "Phase 2" release.[7] On July 11, 2019, it was announced on the Disney Parks Blog that Rise of the Resistance would be opening at Walt Disney World on December 5, 2019 and at Disneyland on January 17, 2020.[1]
