    Do I need to purchase Lightning Lane for the Rise of the Resistance Ride for my family to go on?

    Hello Audeno,

    Bright Suns! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Before you know it you'll be in a galaxy far, far away, exploring Black Spire Outpost and meeting the residents of Batuu.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is incredible! Once you experience it you'll see why it's such a popular attraction. Purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane is not required to enjoy the ride; however, the wait times in the standby lines get quite long early in the day, and remain that way until Disney's Hollywood Studios closes for the evening. If this is a "must do" for your family, and you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you may want to consider splurging for the Individual Lightning Lane, but you'll need to get it right at 7:00 AM, because time slots usually sell out very quickly. 

    If you are a Resort Hotel Guest and you decide not to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for this attraction, make sure you take advantage of the extra 30 minutes that resort guests get before the parks open. You'll want to be in the standby line before the ride opens for the day. Your wait time may be long, but the queue is interesting, and wait times will only increase throughout the day. It's not unusual to see wait times of over 120 minutes for this attraction. As much as I love this ride, in my opinion two or more hours is too long to wait for any ride when there are so many other incredible shows and rides to experience.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation, and may the Force be with you!
