When Guests visit Disney World, there are a few attractions that almost everyone wants to ride.

When Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Rise of the Resistance was still being awaited by Guests. Once the attraction was available, Guests would arrive hours before Park open to ensure they would be in the Park on time to snag Boarding Pass on their My Disney Experience app. Now, you can do that from the comfort of your hotel room, but if you did it today, things may not have turned out as you would have hoped.

It seems that Rise of the Resistance has yet to open after being closed since the Park opened. If we look at our My Disney Experience app, we can see that the attraction is still shut down. Even if the ride begins running again today, it seems unlikely that all those with a Boarding Pass would be able to experience it.

Although unfortunately, the ride has been shut down all day, Guests who are hoping to ride should keep their eyes peeled on the My Disney Experience app as it will show that the ride is open as soon as it can once again hold Guests.

Disney describes Rise of the Resistance as:

An Attraction on a Scale That Is Impressive, Most Impressive
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!

Accept a Mission from the Resistance
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!

Virtual Queue Required
At this time, Guests are required to join the virtual queue to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. A standby queue is not available. The virtual queue is limited and subject to availability.

Rise of the Resistance does tend to break down often, but we do not see full-day closures too often; hopefully, it will reopen for Guests at one point today.
