Since the opening of Disneyland’s newest ‘land,’ everyone has been anxiously waiting for the opening of Galaxy’s Edge’s second ride, Rise of the Resistance – and let me tell you it does not disappoint. Tucked away in the outer corner of the Galaxy’s Edge, Rise of the Resistance is a fully immersive experience, that really takes the entirety of the land to a whole new level.
You start out on a tropical planet, complete with waterfall, then you slowly make your way into a cavern that will lead you to heart of the Resistance. You know you are there by the flight suits and helmets, which are overflowing the wired cage lockers. Then suddenly you are loaded into a specific area and greeted by BB-8, who shows you a transmission from Rey detailing an escape off of Batuu and back to a secret rebel base. You are loaded into a transport ship where you are, unfortunately, captured by the First Order and taken hostage by a horde of Storm Troopers. You then wait to be loaded into a prison cell; be careful – your captors do not put up with any foolishness! Just after being ‘thrown’ in your cell, the fun really beings. We all know that Kylo Ren won’t let you escape so easily, so hold on and enjoy the ride!
