Rise of the Resistance breaks down all the time it seems. This is bad enough when you are visiting Hollywood Studios for the day, but what about if you drop thousands of dollars for a Galactic Starcruiser voyage? Here is what happens.

The hottest attraction in all of Disney World right now is Rise of the Resistance. Two years after opening, it still consistently draws lines of 2 hours or more. With no virtual queue, you have a few options of riding. The first is to wait in the standby line. Your best chance of riding in less than an hour is by using Early Entry or getting in line right before closing.

The second option is to pay to ride. Using the Individual Lightning Lane option, you can opt out of the standby line and ride with a confirmed return time. The third option, and arguably the most expensive, is to book a Galactic Starcruiser voyage.

If you are willing to drop some serious cash, you can enjoy a 2-night stay which includes a daytime excursion to Batuu at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. There are also drinks, food, characters, and fun missions to complete during your stay.

But, what happens if Rise of the Resistance is closed during your stay? We all know this ride is popular, but it also breaks down a lot. You can read about our recent evacuation experience HERE.

Many times, it also fails to open until late morning-early afternoon. We shared just last week (and many times before in the 2 year it’s been open), that Rise was not operating with the rest of the park. So what do Guests staying on the Starcruiser do when the ride is closed?

Alternate Missions

If Rise of the Resistance is closed during your Batuu excursion, Disney will give you alternate missions to complete instead. Using the datapad on My Disney Experience, you will still have fun in Batuu.

Although it’s not quite the same, Disney is prepared for times like these. Hopefully this never happens to you when you are on your voyage!

Do you think alternative missions are a reasonable solution for times when Rise of the Resistance is down?
