Today is the day! Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is opening today, December 5, 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. To go along with highly anticipated attraction, Disney Parks Play has some new and exciting updates to their app to incorporate this brand new high tech attraction.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open in Disneyland soon as well with these same updates. Disneyland will get the attraction opened on January 17, 2020.
Whether this is your first or fifth time traveling to Batuu, you’ll notice that there is a language and immersion all its own on this far far away planet. You will need your Datapad (cellphone) and will have to download the Disney Parks Play App in order to partake in this interactive experience.
According to Disney Parks Blog, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will take visitors on a harrowing adventure and put you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. With your datapad, you can choose to support either side by selecting new jobs within the app as you move through the Resistance clearing and towards attraction.
Distress Signal Received: If you choose to help the Resistance you’ll receive a distress signal from Finn, who is undercover on a Star Destroyer near Batuu. Connect and help him navigate the ship by selecting his path – and you may even free Resistance prisoners, reprogram droids and gather information on what the First Order is up to on the way. Depending on the route you share with Finn, you’ll uncover items and schematics exclusive to this assignment.
Infiltrate Resistance Recruitment: Meanwhile, First Order loyalists entering the Resistance recruit line will be tasked with surveilling and reporting back on the status of Resistance supplies. You will be able to communicate with a First Order officer as you make your way through, and with her instruction you may choose to scan crates, intercept transmissions or even plant tracking devices from your Datapad.
See where this exciting interactive option takes you as you explore Black Spire Outpost. There are a number of features all throughout the land that come alive with the app and you are also able to translate words all throughout the park and a number of other features only available on the app.
Be sure to download the Play Disney Parks app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store before your visit to check out these exciting features and experiences. And during your visit to Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort, don’t forget there’s even more to explore with the Play Disney Parks app, from in-queue games and Disney trivia, to specially themed Disney Parks playlists through Apple Music®* and playful ride achievements.
Available for iPhone® and smartphones for Android™.
