    Jeanie from MI Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Rise of the Resistance opens on 12/5 - 2 days before our arrival. Hubby wants to know when I need to make our Fast Pass selection for this? Have watched trailers on it, but don't know if it is like Mission Space? I couldn't handle that one!

    Bright Suns, Jeanie!  I have recently returned from a visit to the planet of Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.  I can honestly say this land is like nothing I have ever experienced before.  I truly felt transported to a different time and place.

    Although we don't yet have complete details on Rise of the Resistance,  I was able to get a sneak peek at a portion of the experience when some members of the Disney Parks Moms Panel were invited to a preview event.  Guests will enter the Resistance Forest on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost, and progress through different areas as they head for their rendezvous with General Organa.  I can tell you that Guests will actually enter a Star Destroyer, as you can see in this image.  Believe me, the First Order Officers and Stormtroopers are very intimidating!  In this description of Rise of the Resistance, you can see the vehicles that transport captured members of the Resistance aboard the Star Destroyer.

    FastPass+ will not initially be offered for Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run or Rise of the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.  At this time, we have no word on when these attractions may begin offering FastPass+ service.

    The good news is since Rise of the Resistance will open shortly before your visit, we'll have a better idea of what the experience will be like.  Even if you choose not to participate in the ride attractions, Black Spire Outpost is still a wonderful place to visit.  I encourage you to sample some of the local foods, browse the shops, chat with the citizens who live and work on Batuu, and soak up the atmosphere.

    Have a wonderful visit, and please let us know if we can answer any additional questions.

    May the Spires Keep You,

    Anne Marie
