When visiting Disneyland or Disney World, it’s an inevitable — and harsh — reality that some rides, restaurants, and shops could be closed at random. There’s nothing quite like that feeling of showing up to the parks to find your favorite attraction closed. We’ve all been there.
So our thoughts go out to Disneyland attendees today, especially those who were excited to try and get a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance…because we’ve got some sad news for you.
In both Disneyland and Disney World, Rise of the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is infamously difficult to get into. It requires meticulous planning, alarm clocks, and a wish upon a star!
So when you think about it, the fact that Rise of the Resistance is unavailable for the entire day in Disneyland kinda alleviates some of that stress? Going for glass half full here… .
Of course, SO many people visit Disney nowadays with the priority of experiencing Galaxy’s Edge, and specifically Rise of the Resistance (hence why Disney’s Hollywood Studios can be a hassle to get into), so we can only imagine what a bummer this is.
Messages popped up on mobile devices this morning in Disneyland, informing visitors that the attraction will not be able to board any recruits at all today. Oof!
We also walked by the ride entrance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and saw that it was closed.
Cast members stood in front of the entrance to let guests know that it wasn’t running.
Hopefully guests will be able to return tomorrow and try again, but in the meantime, have fun exploring the rest of Galaxy’s Edge and Disneyland! We’ll keep you posted when the ride is up and running again!
What’s the most heartbroken you’ve been by a ride closure at Disney? Let us know in the comments!
