One of the few disappointments about the opening of Star Wars: The Edge of the Galaxy in California is that the Rise of the Resistance is the most advanced new ride expansion, will not be ready in time for the grand debut of the land. But now the official opening dates have been announced for both Disneyland and Disney World, and they are accompanied by a cool new poster featuring Kylo Ren looming over the action. According to the official DisneyParks blog, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which is regarded as "the most immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined in a Disney Park," will be opened at Walt Disney World first , the opening opens its doors and letting fans adore December 5, 2019 happening on Walt Disney's birthday. Guests of Disneyland must wait until January 17, 2020 for the west coast version of the attraction to open. That seems like a fair trade-off since California visitors have a head start in the Florida park. (The Galaxy's Edge of Anaheim will be opened on May 31, and the Walt Disney World version will open on August 29th.)
Here's a new poster to celebrate new announcements at the opening date:  Star Wars Rise of the poster of protest ” width=”416″ height=”600″ srcset=”https://d13ezvd6yrslxm.cloudfront.net/wp/wp-content/images/Star-Wars-Rise-of-the-Resistance-poster.jpg 416w, https://d13ezvd6yrslxm.cloudfront.net/wp/wp-content/images/Star-Wars-Rise-of-the-Resistance-poster-347×500.jpg 347w” sizes=”(max-width: 416px) 100vw, 416px” />
Here is the official description of the attraction from the DisneyParks blog:
When it opens, Star Wars: Release of the fight will blur lines between fantasy and reality and place guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the fight. Visitors are encouraged to join Rey and General Organa on a secret base. Along the way, they will be caught by the First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some Fighting heroes, they come out and have to flee the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.
Back in January, rumors emerged that this would be a 28-minute experience from the entrance to exit, and the attraction would have a total of 305 animatronic figures and droids, 50-100 expected to be Stormtroopers. There are 18 different show scenes and five different riding systems, and if you want to beat details about what's in the store, you can find them here.
This is a great Disney attraction, which seems to greatly diminish the number of people visiting the Galaxy Edge in California during the opening of the month. For a family to pay astronomical amounts of money necessary to visit the park (and to buy lightsabers, droids, food, etc.), it is only reasonable that visitors would like to wait for with both major attractions to be open so they can get the whole experience.
