    Is Rider switch available for Rise of the Resistance?

    Hello there, Tyler! Welcome to planDisney! We are so excited that you took the time to visit us and ask a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    You and your family are so close to journeying to a galaxy far, far away and experiencing all the adventure of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! In just a few short sleeps, you will be visiting the Black Spire Outpost on the distant planet of Batuu where excitement hides around every corner. Guests can wander through the winding roads of Batuu and explore shops such as Black Spire Outfitters and Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. If you grow hungry during your travels, there are many different options for grabbing a bite to eat and a refreshing drink! One of my personal favorites, though, is Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. This location features some unique dishes that will interest the most experienced traveler while also boasting some more familiar foods for the little ones. 

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is also an absolutely incredible experience and not one to be missed when visiting Batuu! This immersive attraction takes Guests directly into battle against the First Order where you may even come face-to-face with Kylo Ren! 

    You will also be happy to hear that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance does in fact offer Rider Switch for Guests traveling with small children! However, it is important to note that Guests will need join a boarding group in order to experience this attraction. This can be done using the My Disney Experience app upon arrival to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Once you have joined a boarding group, you will be given a boarding number and an approximate time of when you will be able to board the attraction. Once your time has come, head over to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and let a helpful Cast Member know that you will need to use the Rider Switch Service. They will then issue your Rider Switch pass, allowing all members of your party to experience the attraction while also keeping an eye on your little ones. 

    I hope you and your family have an absolutely magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can assist with planning any other portion of your visit!
