One of the most exciting additions to Walt Disney World came in 2019 with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This expansion added some super fun shops, restaurants, and of course, amazing attractions. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is just one of the two rides at the land and is a fun interactive ride for Guests to experience, except when the ride shuts down.

In a TikTok posted by Sean Duff (@sean_duff), Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, the ride based upon Han Solo’s choice of spaceship seems to be encountering some issues. The screen turns off, the lights turn on, and the Guests in the video can’t help but feel like maybe they caused the breakdown. See the full video below:

Yes, the ride broke down while we were on it. No, we don’t think we were the reason. #disneyworld #hollywoodstudios #millenniumfalcon#smugglersrun

While this ride breakdown was most likely not caused by the Guests pushing all these buttons, it is quite funny that the r9ide stopped after they did it.

The other super exciting attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. This ride takes Guests on a Star Wars journey, encountering First Order Storm Troopers, AT-AT’s and even Kylo Ren. The ride is incredibly themed and features a lot of surprises.
