    First an overall summary of the plot of RotR, spoilered in case you want to be surprised if you do this. Second, two videos from the ride.....

    OK you start this amazing experience as Resistance recruits taken to a shuttle for transport. You start in the briefing room with full size BB8 and an awesome full size Rey hologram, this is so clear, she just appears in the corner of the room no more than a couple feet from you. She gives an overview, that Finn and some resistance fighters have infiltrated a Stardestroyer. You are walked outside to a landing area with a full size T-70 X-wing in Finn's black squadron logo, and a full size shuttle. You get on the shuttle (the X-wing and shuttle engines are starting, superb sound effects and visuals too). Inside the shuttle you see various display screens and also a mon-cala pilot (superbly detailed animatronic). Suddenly Poe comes onscreen saying enemy spacecraft inbound, you are attacked by TIEs, Poe loses a couple X-wings and has to break off, he says "stay strong - I will be back". You are caught in the tractor beam and taken aboard the stardestroyer. At this point the SAME DOOR you came into from the outside, opens, and you are ON BOARD the stardestroyer, in the most beautifully detailed FULL SIZE hangar bay [I have no idea how they did this - it is amazing]. The room must be 100 feet by 100 feet - there is a FULL SIZE TIE fighter on the right side and rows and rows of first order stormtroopers in front of you. At this point the FO officer takes everyone into an interrogation room, and the officer approaches each group and asks some questions, my 17 yr old son had a light saber he bought that he hid inside his shirt!. You are then herded into a holding cell with about 4 other families. Hux and Kylo appear and tell us we in deep trouble, and do not expect any help to arrive. The lights go out and suddenly one wall of the room you are in SPLITS OPEN with glowing red edges and a Resistance fighter bursts in saying he is part of Finn's team and he can get us out!! You leave that room and walk to an adjacent area where you board individual prisoner transport units with black R5 FO droids on front. This is where my video begins, as you now travel througout the interior of the stardestroyer in your attempts to escape. You get to the bridge, which is a magnificent room, with Hux and Kylo, at that point on the forwardview screen Poe and the resistance fleet jumps in and starts attacking your star destroyer! During this ride you go through a room with at least 2 FULL SIZE AT-ATs that you go under, around, and then eventually on an external elevator going up one level to the head of the AT-ATs. you can see inside the open head hatch and see FO officers and troopers, just an amazing effect. Finn and his troops are shooting at the FO and a huge battle ensues, with you in the middle of it. You go through a room, UNDERNEATH huge shock cannons that are shooting at the resistance fleet, just jaw dropping. You end up getting jettisoned from the stardestroyer and FREE FALLING through the space battle to the planet surface below......words cannot describe this attraction.....just amazingly detailed throughout...NOTE: YES that is Kylo cutting through the ceiling trying to get to you at one point!!!

    Here is the sequence inside the Resistance Shuttle at the beginning



    Here is the sequence inside the Stardestroyer at the end

    Looks pretty rad :D

    Say, when you're in the shuttle, it looks like there's a gunnery station in the back (the oposite end of the Mon Calamri pilot dude). It looked to me as if you could've jumped into that station to play along? But nobody did? Or did I misread that?

    In any case, this looks relly cool indeed :)

    Btw, did you do the Millennium Falcon ride thingy?

    Looks like you guys had a fun time! My trip to Disney keeps getting pushed back, but hopefully I’ll make it to Batuu in the next year or two.

    I highly recommend you wait , if possible, until mask mandate ceases and fast pass opened up again....ride wait times were becoming too long while we were there.

    My family and I were planning on going Fall Break this year, but school will get in the way of that. We may just go sometime early 2022 but it’s up in the air right now. I definitely don’t want to be thinking/worrying about COVID whenever I do go, so that delay may not be entirely bad.

    I hope that by the time I go, the only masks I’ll see there are those of Kylo Ren and his stormtroopers. :p

    yep. Multiple Disney trips over the years have taught us that Jan-Feb and Sep-Oct are the best times to go

    Here is some Aurebesh Translation. This is an advertisement sign for the "ORES" or "Outer Rim Expedition and Supply" company, this is as you walk through Batuu.

    Here is the full translation. Pretty cool !!! I guess if you are interested in exploring the Outer Rim these are the people you go to!!

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. It really looks cool Baatu and the Galaxy Edge complex. I hope I can make a visit to Orlando in 2 or 3 years (because my daughter still has one year only).

    Some questions to you:

    - What's taste the blue milk? What's that actually? Made of what?
    - There had been any parade during your time there? I meant , some troopers passing through, or some characters interacting with the people;
    - Did you buy anything from the stores? Toys? Lightsabers? Etc;
    - This was in Orlando, Galaxy Edge in LA is open, incomplete? Because I only heard of the one in Orlando. Even here in Europe they are planning to open one in Paris only in 2024 or 2025....

    I would so love to go to some star wars themed world for a day. It’s like any kid’s dream. Or anybody’s dream for that matter. Who would’ve thunk that you can board the millennium falcon in real life! Crazy yall!
