While a lot of people were excited for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland in May, the announcement of the opening was tempered somewhat by the revelation, that not everything that had been announced would be open on day one. Rise of the Resistance, an E-ticket attraction, would not be there when the new land opened at Disneyland or Walt Disney World, but now we know when the attraction will finally arrive, and Walt Disney World is getting it first.
While the west coast got the first Galaxy’s Edge land in May, and the Walt Disney World version won’t even be open until August 29, today the Disney Parks Blog revealed that the Walt Disney Imagineers in charge of the Rise of the Resistance attraction have been hard at work getting the attraction ready in Florida first. It will open there on December 5. It will follow in California in short order, opening at Disneyland in early 2020, on January 17.
