Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in theaters now- and it’s got to be on your list of must see movies. And trust me, you want to see it in the theater for the full experience. But if you are like me and know sitting for over 2 hours and 20 minutes straight without a bathroom break is almost impossible, I’ve got Rise of Skywalker Survival Tips for you. Here are my non-spoiler suggestions on when you can make a break to hit the bathroom- look, you gotta know when you can pee at Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, amirite?
Hi, I’m Patty and I have the smallest bladder on the planet.
My special skills include knowing where the closest bathrooms are on a runDisney racecourse and at pretty much at any theme park you want to visit.
Rise of Skywalker Survival Tips (ie, When Can You Pee?)
Let’s be real.
When you gotta go, you gotta go. And I feel like there’s a point or two in the movie that you might be able to run to the bathroom for a break.
Please note: I share this information to help you be more comfortable for what’s to come toward the end of the movie- it’s critical that you don’t leave your seat for any reason after about the 1-hour 30 minute mark.
Also, please make sure you have checked this list of Star Wars movies out before you go; there’s a lot of references to the old movies. Consider this a bonus tip!
Tip #1: Do Whatever It Takes- To Hold It
Don’t drink in advance of the movie. Like, at all if you need to.
You know your body (or your kiddos!) best, so you know what that might mean to you.
I’d also avoid that Large $6.50 soda for the show, but that’s just me!
Tip #2: Sit Near the Aisle If This Is An Issue For You
But you probably know this tip and have been incorporating it in your movie-going life for years.
But thought I’d remind you to choose wisely so you can be quick!
Tip #3: The First Half of the Movie is the Best Bet to Dash Out
This movie is full of action, and if the first scenes got you worked up and your kidneys got that shot of adrenaline and kicked things into overdrive: go pee early and be quick about it!
Tip #4: Pee Fast- And Wash Your Hands.
I mean… we’re all in a rush to get back to the movie but never too much of a rush to skip hygiene, amirite?
Yup, you’ve been mom’ed.
Sorry, not sorry.
When Can You Pee During Rise Of Skywalker?
Here are the moments that I think make the best go, run, pee! times for Rise of Skywalker.
If you are getting squirmy, run right after the times listed and you should be good to go. (he he, get it? go?)
- When they arrive at the desert planet around 21 minutes
- When they leave the desert planet around 42 minutes
- When Rey gets on the Falcon around 1:05 minutes
After that, I’d suggest sticking in your seat because this is when things get really good!
