Groundbreaking attraction at Disneyland Park is another jaw-dropping way for guests to live their own Star Wars adventures in the award-winning new land
The groundbreaking new Disney attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is set to make its global debut Dec. 5, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and at Disneyland Park in California on Jan. 17, 2020. This highly anticipated experience adds to the immersive adventures available to guests inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the 14-acre land that opened in both parks earlier this year.
As the largest single-themed land expansion in Disney history, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is already proving wildly popular by inviting guests to live their own Star Wars adventures in a galaxy far, far away. They join a climactic battle between the Resistance and the First Order in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and take control of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. And while exploring this expansive new land, they can sample galactic food and drink, enter an intriguing collection of merchant shops and encounter some of their favorite Star Wars characters.
“Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is the most ambitious, immersive, advanced, action-packed attraction we’ve ever created. We threw out the rulebook when designing this attraction to deliver experiential storytelling on a massive, cinematic scale,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance sets a new standard for what a theme park experience can be – just like Galaxy’s Edge, itself. None of this would be possible without the incredible teams at Walt Disney Imagineering, Disneyland and Walt Disney World, who brought not one, but two award-winning lands to life at the same time.”
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been recognized by several prestigious organizations for excellence in design and execution:
