Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney World temporarily closes after lightning strike

A guest at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida caught a dramatic lightning strike on video that reportedly temporarily shut down a ride.

Aaron Coppock told FOX35 in Orlando that the lightning bolt appeared to hit inside the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge park Monday.

A ride in the park, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, was temporarily shut down after the strike. The ride reopened Wednesday.

Disney has a network of lightning rods throughout its parks in order to deal with storms, according to the report.

A Disney representative didn’t immediately respond to questions.
