Our prize this time is a BB-8 sipper, along with a "Rise of the Resistance"-branded shoulder sling in which to carry the sipper. And we are throwing in a Rise of the Resistance-themed MagicBand, too. (The MagicBand is unlinked, FYI.)

December 7, 2019 at 6:57 PM

First time I rode Smugglers Run, I thought it was the best that Disney has ever done (even better than Flight of Passage). Now I can't wait to experience Rise of the Resistance. And I'd love to have some swag to go with the experience. Hope the Force is with me on this one.

December 7, 2019 at 7:52 PM

I’m so excited about the new ride! I’ve got to wait another year and a half before I get to see it, sadly.

I love some swag. Please enter me

December 8, 2019 at 1:46 PM

I am the winner you’re looking for.

December 8, 2019 at 2:09 PM

RotR has to be one of the best attractions in the world. Was completely blown away by it and felt completely immersed. I was so giddy and had high expectations, but Disney did not let me down!

Always love swag. That's probably the best magicband design I've seen. Consider this my entry!

December 8, 2019 at 2:12 PM



December 8, 2019 at 2:18 PM

I hate free things, but I will take this if you pick me, because I am nice like that.

December 8, 2019 at 2:48 PM

I can’t wait for my trip in February! Thanks so much for this site and all the news and editorial content.

Really excited for this ride. Smugglers Run ended up kinda disappointing, but I have high hopes for this one... if it overcomes the weird capacity constraints Disney built into *everything* in Galaxy's Edge.

December 9, 2019 at 12:50 PM

Can't wait to head to Galaxys Edge in January at DLR to ride RotR....and I'd love some Star Wars swag!

December 9, 2019 at 12:59 PM

That swag will come in handy while I wait in line on January 17th @ DL :-)

December 9, 2019 at 1:11 PM

Great swag for when I get to ride it!

December 9, 2019 at 1:25 PM

Hung out on Batuu for 7 hours on opening day waiting for my turn to ride, and it is was totally worth it. The ride was completely AWESOME!!!! I need this swag -- I have spoken.

December 9, 2019 at 1:27 PM

December 9, 2019 at 1:31 PM
