t’s the day many people have been waiting for as thousands of people flocked to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the opening of the new “Star Wars” ride.

The grand moment of riders getting to experience “Rise of the Resistance” was met with disappointment, however, when the ride was evacuated early Thursday, according to several social media users.

BlogMickey.com reported on Twitter at 7:30 a.m. that “rumors were true of construction woes and Rise of the Resistance is experiencing downtime on opening day. We had made it onto the ride and were in a final briefing before the lights came on and we were evacuated from the ride.”
