Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

I guarantee you’ll be struck speechless and at a standstill as you round the corner and come to a screeching halt at the first glimpse of the most magnificent attraction setting yet in a Disney park, the massive Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, particularly mind-boggling after dark. It truly is a sight to behold!

Thankfully the long queue is entertaining. The line wraps around the 110-foot Millennium Falcon itself with the best views of the Falcon at the end of the line from above. After being prepped with the background story of your flight from Hondo Ohnaka, one of Disney’s best Audio-Animatronic figures ever, you’ll enter The Chess Room, the perfect place to snap a few photos.

Here you’ll receive your assignment: pilot, gunner, or engineer (two of each per flight for a total of 6 riders). If you are in luck, you’ll be a pilot allowing you a seat at the front of the cockpit with an unobstructed view. Engineers, seated at the rear, can be distracted by those sitting in front. While the ride is more like a super hyped-up, interactive version of Star Tours, the setting is magnificent and well worth any wait you may have to experience.

Minimum height: 38 inches. Not recommended for expectant mothers, those with back, heart, or neck problems, or those prone to motion sickness.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Get ready for an attraction unlike anything you’ve ever experienced! Deep in the forest outside Black Spire Outpost, the Resistance is gathering recruits for a secret mission, one with unexpected twists and turns. Move through a series of adventures until you reach the final surprise when your transport is captured by a First Order Star Destroyer filled with legions of stormtroopers—and even Kylo Ren! But don’t worry… a covert team of Resistance fighters—including Rey and BB-8—arrives to aid in your to escape. Absolutely the most amazing experience yet in a Disney park!

Minimum height: 40 inches. Not recommended for expectant mothers, those with back, heart, or neck problems, or those prone to motion sickness.
