    Rise of the Resistance Thread

    So are we looking at a (very slim) possibility that WDW’s Galaxy’s Edge will open with both rides? It would certainly make sense if it’s physically possible, given the panic that Disneyland has been thrown into.

    News Blizzard Beach closing for extended refurbishment this year with enhancements coming

    As far as soft hotel bookings go, I don’t see why Disney should be surprised after pushing Mickey and Rise back to next year. If we weren’t local, there’s no way we’d go now/fall when waiting six months or so would give us two new E-Tickets (plus Ratatouille) that were marketed to be open in...

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Historical Construction/Impressions

    On the marketing front, Falcon didn’t start getting attention until they announced that Rise would not be opening with the land. There’s a video from a few months back with Trowbridge talking about the land, and half the video is hype about how excited they are to show off Rise because of how...

    Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure is open

    Also, having been on both, Hagrid and Everest are pretty comparable in terms of overall theming. In fact, the rides share many of the same triumphs and flaws.

    The Joys of NO FastPass (DL waits for Falcon average an hour)

    I’d also like to note that we have to throw how well Falcon has been running into the mix of things. It’s high capacity to begin with, and I have seen exactly *one* report of an evac/breakdown for the entire month that it’s been open. Fastpass, crowd levels, etc. notwithstanding, this is the...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I think Carsland’s existence killed Star Wars in DCA before it was even finished back in 2012. The two lands share, at their core, the same premise (once popular and thriving town/ planet has been left behind due to the freeway/hyperspace lanes, and the locals hawk their wares to the visitors...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    The sound issues should just be a matter of turning up the volume; music and noise that seems loud and booming in an empty area can be barely audible when the area is full of people.

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    I think that would run the risk of redundancy, with Rise going in next door.

    Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure is open

    I’ve never understood why all the versions of Hogwarts look so different. Did they change the materials they used for each of them?

    News Guardians of the Galaxy attraction confirmed for Epcot

    I always took the bellhops as being ghosts from the 30’s who are materializing in the present day to allow us to check in a la Haunted Mansion.

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    I was referring to how it feels when we actually start making that walk back to the new area. Obviously we can form some preliminary opinions based on the plans and artwork, but it’ll likely change for better or worse when we’re there in person.

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    I’ll give you that on TRON, but in Rat’s case I’m inclined to disagree. We won’t know for sure until it opens, but Rat’s implementation strikes me as the most carefully thought out of any of the rides being built right now.

    New Harry Potter Coaster Confirmed for 2019 (Dragon's Challenge Closing Sept 4th)

    Bingo. I’m holding out hope for some strategically placed straw to at least partially block the view.

    New Harry Potter Coaster Confirmed for 2019 (Dragon's Challenge Closing Sept 4th)

    The back row barely goes up, but you really feel the intensity of the backwards section, so it’s a tradeoff in the same way that Everest is. If someone’s worried about intensity, I think they should be more focused on getting a seat in the sidecar versus placement towards the front or the back...

    New Harry Potter Coaster Confirmed for 2019 (Dragon's Challenge Closing Sept 4th)

    That’s hard, to be honest! The pace of the ride is lightning quick; you can tell they heard the stop and go complaints of Gringotts and Kong loud and clear, so the ride zips through everything at a nicely energetic pace. As a result, it’s hard to judge each vignette/section on its own...

    New Harry Potter Coaster Confirmed for 2019 (Dragon's Challenge Closing Sept 4th)

    I’ve been on it twice now, and I don’t think that screenshot is a fair assessment of the overall level of theming. The ride is not quite as detailed as Big Thunder Mountain (on average; the portions in and around the ruins/stables are right up there with it, and it has a lot more in the way of...

    "Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run - Ride and Queue Details SPOILERS!!!

    If I had to guess, one when Rise of the Resistance opens, and one for the 50th.

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    To be fair, a proper revamp of Space Mountain could incorporate new theming to further differentiate the two. As far as the coaster experience by itself goes, I’d argue Space Mountain is closer to Big Thunder than it is TRON as it stands.

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Toy Story Land opened with the Green Army Man show, though, and we’re still not fully aware of how substantial the mini shows with the characters throughout SWL will be. Somebody else mentioned the interactive elements, too.
