I bring exciting news! That’s because we now have the official opening dates for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, not only for Walt Disney World, but also Disneyland!

It had been suspected that the premier attraction for both Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands would potentially open on the same day, but that rumor has been put to bed, as it has officially been announced that the Walt Disney World version will now open first and the Disneyland version will open at a later date. So, what are the dates you can expect to experience this show stopping attraction?

First, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on December 5 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. (As a reminder, Florida’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land officially opens on August 29 with Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as its only attraction.)

Then, the attraction will officially open at Disneyland on January 17.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is slated to be the most state-of-the-art attraction the the Walt Disney Company has ever done. The attraction 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, guests break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will have a height requirement of 40 inches.
