There are plenty of times when the Disney hype machine can spin out of control. But when it comes to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, every bit of hype you've heard is true. All of it.
The change will shift other rides at Disney's Hollywood Studios into new FastPass+ tiers, with the exception of the new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
The resort’s busiest period for ride refurbishments has historically come after the first weekend of January, once the holiday crowds have dissipated. January 2020 will be no exception.
The 2020 lineup of new attractions has the potential to shake up the competition in the most crowded theme park market in the world.
In 2018, $277 million was generated in Orange County by a 6 percent tax on hotel rooms. Most of that revenue will go to Visit Orlando, a nonprofit group to promote the tourism industry in Orlando — including major theme parks like Disney World and Universal Orlando.
The new operating procedure may allow guests onto Hollywood Boulevard early, but none of them will be able to snag a spot in the virtual queue until the park’s advertised opening time.
Crowds were so big for opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance that the "virtual boarding group" had reached capacity for the day before the park officially opened.
Members of the media are giving glowing reviews to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney World, calling it among the best theme park rides ever.
