After weeks of extensive preparations, two drones disguised as X-Wings were seen during the opening sequence of the dedication ceremony.

Fireworks competed the dedication moment, following comments from Disney Parks Chairman, Bob Chapek.

Replying to this because... Y'all, the left AT-AT spotlight has been fixed! I'm actually shocked something small like this was actually fixed, so kudos to whoever/the maintenence team that got it working again! Video of effect fully working:

Rise was down first couple of hours yesterday after park opened. When it finally opened several parts in B-mode or just not working. Sad.

I was just on left bridge. I did not notice broken left light on AT-AT. But..... Droid on my ride vehicle was not working. It did move up and down but it's head did not turn left or right.. Completely absent light saber from the ceiling. None of the cannons worked. B mode Kylo Ren on screen tie fighter. Left side of escape pod screen was black. Beck yacking with no sound. Overall a complete **** show. Coming off the a first time rider commented that that was "pretty good" but they don't know that they would have actually waited two hours for it. I wonder if their impression would have been different Had all those effects been working?

Guess the Resistance doesn't need our help after all to defeat the First Order.. 🤷‍♀️

Finally saw the Kylo B mode in person. Story wise, it made no sense. But, it's fine. That Kylo animatronic never worked for me, so I enjoyed something different.

Haven't seen/posted the stoppage at the bridge yet in this thread, Bek's extra dialogue never disappoints. Also it's interesting you can hear/see the escape pods sounds/flashing lights at that part.

Lots of extra dialog and extra stops in this video from PCDEV Doesn't show all of the dialog but stops at: -Outside the bridge -Before the cannons -Before Kylo -bottom of drop pod -Line up after the drop pods.

But that’s the magnum…and I would have ridden that😎 I did live within 5 miles of all the Orlando parks at one time…by the way. Sea world hadn’t built coasters yet…however.

Loved Rise!! Rode it for the first time on Monday. I have spent the last 2 1/2 years trying to ignore spoilers so I dont know if some of it was in B mode or not.

Clearly you’ve never lived close to a park you have a pass to. When I lived in Toledo, I most definitely rode the Magnum XL 200 roller coaster higher then that pace (mainly because at the end of every day I would do 3-5 laps on it to end my night.)

..:can’t do it with the celebration of bad sequels… Sorry. But did I mention that guardians is really good??
