Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open at Walt Disney World Resort on December 5, which also happens to be Walt Disney’s birthday!

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance has been highly anticipated since it’s announcement, but will not open with the rest of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Here’s more about the ride, courtesy of Disney:

When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.

Disney World will not be the only park to get this ride, either. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open at Disneyland on January 17, 2020.
