Rise of the Resistance, very disappointed

Apparently Rise of the Resistance is not going to be open in early morning hours for onsite guests.

Its also going down a lot. Apparently, like Hagrid, its supposed to be not quite ready but they have to press ahead anyway. Its been going down a lot in testing and takes a long time to get running again. I know its highly complex.

May be seen as entitled, but when youve paid all that money to Disney to stay on site, why not open it early morning, then if it has to be down for maintenance, close it a bit during the day?

I was very excited to ride this at Christmas and it looks to be living up to expectations. Of course no Fastpasses as usual for a new ride, but I did expect to have a fighting chance with early morning hours.

I suspect this Xmas could be stupidly busy ( more than normal) with tens of thousands extra brought in on the hype of ROTR which comparatively few will be able to ride. So tens of thousands of extra people, over the Xmas holidays bought into the publicity but unless they queue all day, very little chance. I hope I am wrong.

If you are going over Xmas and staying on site, Id prepare to be disappointed.

Oh what a shame. Out of interest why do they not do FP for news rides? Is this something that eventually changes?

You will need to book into boarding groups using MDE. It is now shown on the app.
Watched ROTR on YouTube this morning and looks absolutely amazing.
