Disney has today announced that Rise of the Resistance will open at Walt Disney World on December 5 2019 in Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

Despite the Disneyland Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening earlier than the Disney's Hollywood Studios version, Rise of the Resistance will not open at Disneyland until January 17 2020.

According to Disney, "When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren."

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World will officially open to guests on August 29 2019.

Soldiers get an important safety lesson about shore leave and prophylactics.

Even the First Order is prepared for wet weather - ponchos for everyone!

Clarifying that the top tier rides cost money/different access aside from Genie+ I think is a good idea to advertise, is all.

And people not staying at a Disney resort didn't find themselves locked out of FP+s for FoP or FEA? The problem isn't the signage.

It’s not. The difference is people arent paying extra fees after admittance for the current denial.

So... it's not different. We agree then. ;)

People walk up to ROTR expecting to just get in a standby line. I don’t see why this would be any different.

Who walks up to a FP lane and then checks to see if there is a FP+ for it? And if they ever do, and see that there are none available, complain that they couldn't use the FP lane? Same with LL.

100% expect a family to see "lightning lane" at the attraction entrance, click through the Genie+ purchase that mentions LL, and then have a nice what the heck reaction when the app or a CM tells them they have to pay $20 more again for ROTR. When that's all they wanted to begin with. These really need two separate names.

"No Indication of Additional Purchase Requirement" Uhhhh.... that's because if you purchase an IA$, you enter thru the Lightning Lane?? That's like saying "No indication of having purchased Genie+ for the day."

At least the LL sign is themed, unlike other attractions that got a makeshift decal sign..

No question, the plexiglass that was in place earlier this year affected the experience.
