Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on December 5th at Walt Disney World, which also happens to be Walt’s birthday. After the opening in Florida, Imagineers will head to Disneyland in Anaheim to complete the ride in time for a January 17th debut.
When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.Disney Parks Blog
