Rise of the Resistance Is Much More Than Just a Star Wars Ride
“This is a multi-act journey,” said Disney

There’s no doubt that stepping into Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge feels like you’re stepping into the Star Wars universe. But up until now, that’s been a mostly passive experience. Starting today, it’s anything but. Today, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens at Disneyland in California, joining Walt Disney World in Florida in now both having complete versions of the popular themed lands (aka Batuu). They both previously launched the areas with that one ride missing and it’s the second of the parks’ two planned rides. In my experience, this new addition is far, far more immersive and impressive than Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. That’s because, more so than maybe any ride ever, Rise of the Resistance is a culmination of all the things theme park rides can do.
