Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios broke down just 20 minutes into the day this morning. Issues have been frequent for the Star Wars ride, even with fewer Guests currently visiting Disney World.

Twitter account @WDWStats shared these details about the Rise of the Resistance interruption, noting that the average downtime for the attraction is 62 minutes.

Given the popularity of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction, these breakdowns can be frustrating for Walt Disney World Resort Guests. The My Disney Experience app reflects the current Rise of the Resistance closure:

For those who haven’t been lucky enough to snag a Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance boarding group yet, the Disney World website features this official description of the attraction:

The Resistance needs your help! Hidden in the forest outside Black Spire Outpost, the Resistance is gathering recruits for a secret mission.

With the First Order desperate to extinguish the spark of the Resistance, the mission is bound to have unexpected twists and turns. When your transport is captured by an imposing First Order Star Destroyer filled with legions of stormtroopers—and even Kylo Ren!—you’re going to need all the help you can get. Fortunately, a covert team of Resistance fighters—including Rey and BB-8—is at the ready to give you a fighting chance to escape… and a chance for the Resistance to rise.

Prepare for a thrilling, first-of-its-kind adventure!
