It’s always a zing of heightened anticipation trying to grab a boarding pass for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The fan-favorite ride inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge teems with excited theme park goers from opening to theme park closing. But, today, just after lunchtime, the ride took on some resistance of its own and closed for the day.

Rise of the Resistance Down For the Day

Instagram user Katie Jo, (handle of @katie_jo_mn) reported that the attraction was no longer accepting riders as of 1:05 p.m. on May 20, 2021.  The popup on Disney Guests’ phones appeared in the My Disney Experience app, encouraging Guests to stay at the theme park and explore the other offerings around the area:

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is unavailable today and we will not be able to board any recruits. We Apologize for the inconvenience. We encourage our Guests to explore other areas of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge or other offerings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. 

The Instagram post from Theme Park Professor is below and is captioned, “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is down for the rest the day… Thanks to @katie_jo_mn for the pic.”

Hopefully, the ride will be serviced and refreshed, ready to blast into a galaxy far, far away tomorrow morning.
