Is Star Wars at Universal Studios?

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is not located in Universal Studios, but in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Rise of the Resistance is easily the most popular ride at the park, but there is also a designated themed Star Wars area known as Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Rise of the Resistance

The average wait time to this ultra popular ride is 75 minutes, but during peak-season it can be upwards of 2-3 hours.

This isn't your ordinary ride that you hop on, and it's over in under a minute. There's a walk-through portion, a dark ride portion, a simulator portion, and even includes a drop and a lift.

Even the cast members are dressed up, and immediately spring to action in order to transition you into the next portion of the ride. It's a full experience.

Galaxy's Edge

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge on the other-hand, is a themed area inspired by the Star Wars franchise that is located in both Disney's Hollywood Studios (Orlando, Florida) and Disneyland (Anaheim, California). 

This is the newest area of the park, and fans were extremely excited to find out when the opening date would finally be.
