    Will Rise of the Resistance feature Rider Swap?

    Bright Suns!

    Randie, we’re so glad you brought your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What an amazing time to be planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    We love the Rider Switch program and have been using it for years! I still have a little one that is 42 inches tall, so we still have a few rides left where we need to use it. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is now accepting guests on Planet Batuu. The Resistance is gathering recruits for an epic battle against the First Order. Are you up for the Challenge? You’ll be happy to hear that Rider Switch is available for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. First things first, in order to board the attraction and use the Rider Switch Pass everyone will need to get a boarding pass for the attraction. Get through the turnstiles and into Disneyland Park before official opening time for the day as Boarding Passes have been going very fast. Download the Disneyland App before you arrive and make sure you are familiar with how to get a Boarding Pass before you get to the park. Once you have your boarding pass and your group is called, you can check in with the Cast Member at the entrance queue and they will scan up to three people that will be riding in the second group. Make sure everyone in your party is with you when you check in for the Rider Switch Pass.

    Make the most of your trip to Planet Batuu, after all you will have traveled very deep into the Outer Rim. Take the opportunity to pilot the Millennium Falcon on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. No experience is needed to be a pilot, gunner or engineer but you’ll need to be at least 38” tall to be part of the crew. Be careful not to crash too badly or you’ll get an earful from Hondo Ohnaka. Cool down with some blue or green milk from the Milk Stand and then head over to Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo where you’ll find galactic meals sure to satisfy everyone in your party. If you’re looking to take something back home with you from your travels, stop by Black Spire Outpost Shops where you’ll find antiques, apparel and exotic creatures and critters to take home.

    Well Randie, I hope your galactic journey to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is out of this world. Choose your allegiance wisely as the Stormtroopers are looking for those communicating with the Resistance and they will find you.

    Remember, always believe in the magic!
