    Will there be any special events or media events associated with the Rise of the Resistance ride opening at Hollywood Studios?

    Bright suns, Rebecca! I see you have a journey to Batuu on the horizon! 

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios next week on December 5, and Imagineers are saying it will be the most ambitious and epic ride to ever come to a theme park! Batuu's flagship attraction is hidden in the forest outside Black Spire Outpost, and the Resistance will be looking for guests to recruit for their secret mission. The ride will put guests into the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance, and they will be helped along the way from some favorite Star Wars heroes—including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and BB-8.

    Only the ancients know if there will be special events going on for the opening on December 5, but I do know that the Park hours have been extended to 8:00 AM-10:00 PM.  If you plan on visiting on that day, make sure to arrive bright and early!  The day before, on December 4, Walt Disney World Resort will be hosting a grand opening preview for the media, so the Park will close to regular day guests at 4:00 PM. 

    If you need to refuel before your mission, look for the hanging podracer engine firing up the giant barbeque pit at Ronto Roasters. They serve up some mighty tasty wraps, including the Ronto Morning Wrap and the regular Ronto Wrap. I'd highly suggest utilizing the Mobile Ordering feature through the My Disney Experience app. I used it last time I was in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and my lunch was ready for me by the time I approached the counter! 

    May the spires keep you, Rebecca!
