Occasionally, something will go wrong in Disney World.
There could be bad weather, a broken animatronic, or even a massive power outage that shuts down entire portions of a park! And over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance was havin’ it rough this morning.
Now, it’s not uncommon for Rise of the Resistance to temporarily close. And when it does, guests who are currently on or in line for the ride may be evacuated out. So what happens if you’re one of those people? Well today, we found out.
We were just about to board the Intersystem Transport Ship this morning when the ride closed and we were evacuated.
A Cast Member escorted us back out into Galaxy’s Edge. Depending on where you are on the ride when you get evacuated, you may be directed backstage to exit.
While no reopening timeline was given for the attraction, we were given a FastPass to use on Rise of the Resistance at any time until 8PM tonight, when the park closes.
And as expected, Rise of the Resistance is currently showing that it is temporarily closed on the My Disney Experience app.
The evacuation process was smooth, and we did appreciate that FastPass that we can use on Rise of the Resistance upon reopening. (Do note, though, that FastPasses are not typically used on this ride — they’re only employed for rare circumstances like this one.). If you ever encounter a situation like this while preparing for your battle against the First Order, you can expect something pretty similar. However, we cannot guarantee that you’ll be given that FastPass.
We’ll continue to keep you posted with the latest Disney news. Stay tuned to DFB!
