VIDEO: Using the Paid Individual Lightning Lane Access at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, But We Skipped Two Pre-Shows

Though individual Lightning Lane access for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance sold out this morning, we were able to purchase a 10:15 a.m. return time for $15 per person.

The posted standby wait time was 120 minutes when we arrived for our Lightning Lane window. Cast Members were directing guests to the entrance, where we scanned our MagicBand.


Lightning Lane guests would typically enter just before the first pre-show, where they would be mixed in with standby guests and experience the pre-shows.

Unfortunately, two pre-shows were down this morning, and we were redirected through a backstage area straight onto the First Order Star Destroyer. From here you still wait in the short queue aboard the ship, then proceeding to your holding cell and into the ride vehicle. Without the first two pre-shows, we waited roughly 7 minutes from entering the queue to boarding the actual ride.

  1. Thanks for covering this CORRECTLY. You know, if there were any doubts as to the paid shills on the interwebs, today has made them crystal clear.

    AllEars/DFB, especially, should be hung out to dry. Officially! I think that they’re entirely funded by the mouse.

  2. Really nice to see the haves and have-nots class system displayed by guests. Exactly what Paycheck probably wanted. 🙄
