Default Rise of the Resistance Delays?

Just putting this rumor out there for people to be aware of when planning and hoping.

There are rumors around various boards that seem to track back to a post from an insider on WDWMagic that Rise of the Resistance may be delayed, perhaps until early 2020.

The rumor source suggests 12/14 is the "hoped for" date if there is a delay. Disney isn't announcing because they don't want to hurt bookings. It all seems to come down the reliability of the ride system that is supposed to be very complex.

So, my take-away - be prepared to not experience this attraction if you are going over the holidays.

Dirk

Oh my! Thanks for the info., as I rather be prepared for disappointment, then to be unpleasantly surprised by it.

We were going to miss the 12/5 opening by a day.
Was hoping for a soft open pixie dust thing while we were there, but with low expectations.

Now this...bummer if this does happen for other December visitors.

Blargh.

If there is a delay, I suspect it will be announced at the last minute. SWGE has been a rollout disaster. The overall, the land is a masterpiece, but Disney has shot themselves in the foot and got a big nudge from mother nature.

Yep. In hindsight, probably better to have simply waited, or else opened the land in “preview mode” so everybody feels super privileged to enjoy what is there.

Oh, well. I do look forward to going back, and really hope RotR is open for our late January trip. If the tech is this hard to get nailed down, it must be something awesome!

Should be open by the time we are there though.

So maybe DL will be the first one to open it!

This is kind of a big oops by Disney. They have got to be crossing all fingers and toes that they can pull it out or their going to have some pretty unhappy people around the World at that time. Not everyone but enough who waited and planned on it once it was announced.

Yeah, if there is a delay, those who booked for the announced dates are going to be really peeved.

The timing has been all about what marketing wanted, not what the actual construction and operations people thought possible, I suspect.

Just watch this last night with my wife who has never seen any of the Star Wars movies. Prepping her for galaxies edge.

I am going to send Vader there to make sure it is open by MLK weekend!

Possibly it will open at the same time as Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railroad which I believe is due to open in the late Spring of 2020.
