Len Testa shares his experiences from both the press event for “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” as well as opening day for this new Disney’s Hollywood Studios attraction. He then offers his advice on how to increase your chances of actually getting to experience this ambitious ride while the Imagineers work out its kinks


In this episode, listeners will learn about:

How – given the technical difficulties “Rise of the Resistance” is currently experiencing – Dumbo the Flying Elephant over at the Magic Kingdom now has a larger hourly capacity than “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” ‘s new signature attraction

Why getting into getting Disney’s Hollywood Studios as early as possible and then immediately joining a boarding group is crucial if you want to experience “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” during its first weeks of operation

Why the Stretching Room at Disney’s Haunted Mansion repeatedly comes to mind as you’re making your way through this massive show building

How “Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure” can be a wonderful experience AS WELL AS the least efficiently operated major theme park attraction in North American today

Why booking a VIP tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios isn’t going to guarantee you access to “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance”
