For far too long this side (generally agreed upon as the better side since it is a bit smoother) has sat empty.

With the initial excitement over we are all looking forward to the January 17, 2020, opening of the Rise of the Resistance ride. We’ve seen walls come up and go down. The queue seems to be ready to go and you can hear sounds coming from inside the ride. Needless to say we are excited!

  1. Please Disney….let Star Wars roll over and die. It has lived it’s life. Quit trying to milk the last dime out of it. And above all else NO MORE MOVIES. No more bringing back dead actors to keep the franchise “original ” No more movie spinoffs…R2D2 gets training wheels…..Chewbacca gets a haircut. No more overpriced toys….or flashlights (lightsabers) It’s a wonderful movie and I’m a huge fan…but no other movie in history has been over done as this one. Oh wait …..look what you did to Pirates of the Caribbean….what 12 movies or so…….
