Disney Parks Blog Weekly Recap – Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Opens at Disneyland Resort, Epcot International Festival of the Arts Begins and More…

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is now open at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort!  

This week, to celebrate the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the D23 Inside Disney podcast team hosted special day-of coverage right here on the Disney Parks Blog – direct from Batuu!  

As many of you know, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of the most ambitious attractions ever created for a Disney park. The thrilling action takes place in massive sets that give guests the feeling of stepping inside a Star Wars film as they elude the clutches of Kylo Ren and the First Order in a mad dash through a Star Destroyer.

Check out Michael’s story for more details on the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disneyland Resort.
