Episode Description

Rise of the Resistance is open at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Orlando and it lives up to the hype. We discuss the virtual boarding queue, logistics, Joe's experience, and give a spoiler free review.

BUT THEN - Doug McKnight from Rope Drop Radio joins the cause to discuss the ride in depth - SPOILERS IN THIS SECTION.

If you haven't ridden yet, please, turn the episode off at minute 17! (There's also a warning). It's an attraction best experienced with as little pre-knowledge as possible.

Check out Doug's live opening day review here (also spoilers at the end of that one).
