If they've got the money, honey, Mickey's got the time.Schnikes, we've found the catch. Everybody and their Momma can come. What's the point of exclusivity, if almost everyone is able to take part in the tea party?
What's next they are going to allow all of the Irlo Bronson motels?
Should we do a "when will the first person line up?" bet? My money's on 2pm on the 28th of August.
I'd expect spillover throughout the park/parks...either you elect to wait in huge lines and then want to do something else afterwards, or you see the lines and immediately bolt to another area or park. TSL and EPCOT will feel the pain. F&W is already crowded far beyond the normal EPCOT crowds. This will make it worse.My family booked a vacation 8/28 - 9/4 thinking that SW wasnt going to be open then. Planning for this vacation is getting more and more intense. my family has little interest in SW, but what do you think the lines will be like in TSL? my kids are obsessed with TSMM.
What impact do you think these new hours (and the opening of SW in general) will have on Epcot and the F&W?
Which will only make it exponentially worse for everyone involved. If my cousin were any younger than he will be during our trip, there is no way I would even think of attempting it.I hope that people realize what it will be like and do not drag their kids along because 7 hours of queuing when you've been woken up at 4am to get to EMH at 6am is going to cause all sorts of ructions with tired toddlers.
Do you think that's part of why DLR's SW:GE is opening first?I don’t think the demand will be as high, as Universal found out with HP west coast the second (nearly) identical land will not get as much fanfare. I’m going to DL in June, July (booked after I realized I would only get limited time in SWGE in June) and Oct because I choose there for my AP this year. DHS will still pack in crowds but it won’t be as bad.
Along these lines, I think folks are grossly underestimating crowd size/time. This idea of strolling over at 4 or 5am, I don’t think that’s going to get you near the front of the line until October. There will be non-Disney “Star Wars only” fans who sleep outside of theaters when the new movies come out.
I really hope you are right we will be there mid September, But I would bet BIG that you are wrongI'm going to disagree and say that, other than the opening week, arriving at 4am will get you exactly to the front of the line.
I think that the 'Star Wars impact' is starting to reach a mythical status around here that reality can't possibly measure up to and the pendulum for this discourse is starting to swing sharply towards hyperbole.
Yes it will have a large impact, but I think that if I show up at 4am for opening on the last week in September (my trip date), I will end up feeling silly for having come so early. I could be wrong.. but that's my prediction. There will be plenty of worms for the early birds in September.
