@TraceyM0802 attempted to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios three times on Tuesday, with the ride breaking down each time. Eventually, Guests were forced to sit waiting in the queue, which had a posted wait time of an hour and 50 minutes:

When you’re sitting on the ground of @WaltDisneyWorld @StarWars ride, because it broke down like 3 times today. Waiting all day to get on this. Come on Disney. #riseoftheresistance #110minutewait

“Come on Disney,” the Guest pleaded. She also shared a photo of Guests waiting in the crowded standby line.

At the time of publication, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance was back in operation with a 95-minute wait.

Because of its advanced technology, Rise of the Resistance regularly breaks down and requires a reset. Guests with existing Individual Lightning Lanes are given an any-time Lightning Lane that they can use at any attraction in the Disney Park or save for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance when it opens back up.

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!
