The popular ride, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, draws in Guests each and every day at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland as Star Wars fans cannot wait to join the Resistance in an epic battle against the First Order.

However, it is safe to say that this ride has had its fair share of technical difficulties as it consistently faces prolonged downtime, specifically the Walt Disney World version.

With this being said, Disney could finally be giving the popular attraction a much-needed update as a new permit, which you can view here, has been filed. The permit lists the location of Rise of the Resistance and is for “general construction”.

Though no other information has been provided, what we do know is that Disney is getting ready to perform some type of general construction at the Rise of the Resistance location. This could be for minor updates just to ensure the ride runs properly as Rise of the Resistance is not currently listed on the refurbishment calendar for Walt Disney World.

Additionally, if there were to be any big construction updates, we suspect to see more permits filed soon.

Therefore, we suspect whatever construction Disney is getting ready to perform will be minor enough to not close down the attraction.

We hope that the construction update will help to improve the ride experience. Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information regarding this Hollywood Studios ride.

If you have never experienced the popular Star Wars attraction, Rise of the Resistance, Disney World describes the ride as:

Join the Resistance in an epic battle against the First Order on this exciting new ride.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a massive attraction with multiple ride systems that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced at Walt Disney World Resort… or anywhere else in the galaxy!

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!
