As part of the Genie+ and Lightning Lane services, guests will soon be able to purchase access to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.
Select attractions will be available as part of the paid Genie+ service and some will require individual payment through Lightning Lane. Rise of the Resistance will require a Lightning Lane individual purchase.
Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro revealed that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be one of the attractions available. “Think about Rise of the Resistance. It’s a highly demanded attraction. Guests show up in the morning and they try to get into the virtual queue. We get as many people on there as we can, but inevitably someone is disappointed. Now there’s another option on top of the virtual queue so if Rise of the Resistance is the reason you’re at Disneyland or Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there will be an option for you to purchase Rise of the Resistance. So again: flexibility, optionality, better guest experience overall,” D’Amaro said in an interview for D23.
