Extended Park Hours Released to Prepare for ROTR

We are as giddy as a school girl!  Soon Rise of the Resistance will be available for guests who visit Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. To prepare, Disney has extended park hours to accommodate the influx of guests!  Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is set to open on December 5th in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort and in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort on January 17th.

“This harrowing adventure will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. You will join the Resistance and depart from Batuu in a transport ship to meet General Leia Organa at a secret rendezvous point. Along the way, however, you will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. The action then ramps up as you seek to escape the clutches of Kylo Ren and the First Order – with the help of some heroes of the Resistance.”  With this description of the attraction, even the smallest of Star Wars fans are excited!  There is no wonder Disney is preparing for opening day.

With Rise of the Resistance opening first at Walt Disney World on December 5, 2019, Walt Disney World has extended park hours for that day.  Hollywood Studios will open at 8 a.m. and close at 10 p.m.

Around the rest of Walt Disney World, Rise of the Resistance will affect the hours at other parks too.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom will now open at 8 a.m. on that date with Extra Magic Hours beginning at 7 a.m. Epcot will also open at 8 a.m. with Extra Magic Hours beginning at 7 a.m.

Enjoy the opening of Rise of the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

Oh, she also loves painting, crafting, and all that stuff.
