PHOTOS: Plastic Dividers Added to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Ride Vehicles at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance boarding groups are filling up within seconds each day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Now, it looks like Disney might be looking for a way to increase the ride’s capacity. New plastic dividers have been added to some ride vehicles as a trial.

The folks at Goofketeers saw the dividers on a transport after their own while they were in the exit queue.

The divider is between the front and back row. These dividers might mean two parties can safely board one prison transport again.


We headed to Rise of the Resistance later and saw the divider ourselves. Though we saw several vehicles go by, only one had the flexible divider.


We will keep checking on Rise of the Resistance to see if these dividers are added to more ride vehicles in the future. In the meantime, make sure to read about the attraction’s technical difficulties if you’re planning a trip to Batuu.

How do you feel about dividers being added to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Horrible idea… Anyone who has rode the Safari at Animal Kingdom can tell you that you can’t see anything through them.

  2. this is redulicus, i wonder how many are gonna fly off in free fall, Universal is loading every seat, and Disney is still trying to figure out how to SJW rides,

  3. Yuck. Hate them on the safari, they totally block the view. I would be so disappointed if I scored ROTR only to have a subpar experience behind a plastic sheet. Bummer 👎🏻

  4. I feel like for rotr, they need to seat every seat. Just be done with it. Single riders= 7 people that could potentially also get a bg.

    I’d rather have a crap screened ride than no opportunity at all.
