Disney has finally announced the opening date for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – a little later than expected.
While the Orlando, Florida version of the ride is expected to be in operation in December. 5, its Californian counterpart will open only on January 17. Disney had originally predicted that both venues would be open by the end of 2019.
"Once the Walt Disney World operations are completed, Imagineers will return to California to complete their mission at Disneyland Resort, where Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on Friday, January 1
The land of Orlando Galaxy's Edge is set to be opened to the public on August 29th, and while it will not yet enter the Rise of Resistance race, it will be the Millennium Galaxy: Smuggler's Run Give races for guests. Other experiences like Savis Workshop, where fans can build their own light sticks, the droid depot where park visitors can make their own droids, and Oga's Cantina will also be open.
