We’re SHOCKED By the Rise of the Resistance Wait Time in Disney World 😱

How long would you wait for a popular ride in Disney World?

Would you wait five hours for this?

We’ve seen multi-hour waits often for rides like Flight of Passage in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Magic Kingdom, and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT. But one ride in Disney’s Hollywood Studios today has surprised us the most because…wait for it…this ride had a FIVE-HOUR WAIT.

Okay, so it’s no secret that Rise of the Resistance is one of Disney World’s most popular — if not THE most popular — ride in the resort. The wait time we saw TODAY, though, shows just how popular it is (and remember that this is for a Saturday in Hollywood Studios). It’s currently at 305 minutes, which amounts to OVER five hours!


We almost couldn’t believe our eyes when checking it on the My Disney Experience app. But we walked by the ride’s entrance today to double-check! We would also like to remind you that there are no bathrooms in this ride’s queue, and five hours is…a LONG TIME.

A LOT of people are waiting to ride this.

When the line is like this, you could save a LOT of money by purchasing Individual Lightning Lane Access through Disney Genie for this ride, which is $15 today. Those Lightning Lanes do sell out quickly, but if this ride is a priority for you and your family, we highly recommend trying to get one.

We did the math: a one-day ticket to Disney World is around $130 right now. The park is open for 12.5 hours. If you spend FIVE HOURS in line for Rise of the Resistance, it’s costing you about $52 of your park ticket to ride. So paying $15 for Lightning Lane access saves you money because in this case, time certainly IS money.
