Has anything been discussed as to what type of experience this will be? I think Martin mentioned something like Gringotts and either he or someone else mentioned itd be pretty neat. I'm excited to see anything new at this point, but it's crazy to see Disney dragging while it feels like Universal pooped out Hagrids and Velocicoaster in like a couple of years.
if by dragging their feet you mean opening 2 new galaxies edge star wars lands and an Avengers Campus....Then you have everything currently being built....all the epcot renovation with about a dozen awesome things happening, tron at MK, MMRR at DL...and thats just in USA. Take a look at whats happened around the world...DSP getting major work done, new BatB area at Tokyo DL, New 30+ acre expansion at TokyoDisneysea, New castle and New Frozen area at Hong Kong, ZootopiaLand at Shanghai....seems like Disney is building a lot right now lol

GE does not contain 2 E ticket rides. The rest of what you wrote… I ain’t got the time. 🤦‍♂️

So? It’s not the same people juggling all of these projects.

fixed it for you
They are in fact dragging their feet. Most of what is going on at WDW was supposed to be done and opened this year, if not opened already. If there are "a dozen awesome things" going into Epcot, I'm going to win a huge lottery jackpot. Plus what was mentioned above - It is not the same people juggling all of the projects.

Go back to late 1987 early 88 Just in Orlando.

Now THAT was building a lot.

(The list you posted is a multiple project operation done by multiple divisions and multiple companies. And let’s not forget GE is two years old now)

I feel like it does have 2. SR is just as exciting (and more engaging) as Star Tours or ToT, which I consider to be E-Tickets. Star Tours was also the only "thrill ride" at MGM for a long time.

SR isn’t even in the same league as ToT, and the Tower is insulted you even mentioned it with such a comparatively paltry ride as SR. Star Tours is a solid D in my book. I’d put SR in the D ticket category as well. It’s just not greater than the sum of its parts, particularly for something that uses an iconic piece of SW as its base of operations. It’s a glorified video game.

ToT goes up and down and has a nice skyline view. SR is a simulator w/ guest interaction. I don't see how SR is less than ToT.




Back on topic, will Guardians reuse the Dinosaurs or Caveman-Kramer?

I can’t imagine thinking MFSR isn’t an E-ticket. It isn’t a spectacular one, but it has everything an E-ticket needs. If they had a more compelling video game to play, people would love it. Maybe have us actually engage in a star war?

I'm the opposite -- I can't imagine anyone thinking it is. Being inside the Millenium Falcon is great. The actual ride experience is pretty bad -- you can have more fun/a better experience playing a 25 year old Star Wars PC game than you get on SR.

As someone who actually plays video games regularly, though (or at least I used to; not as much now), I think it would be very difficult for me to have any ride that's essentially a video game be an E ticket. They're basically guaranteed to be significantly worse in essentially every way than what you can play at home on your couch. I feel similarly about rides that take place entirely or almost entirely in front of a screen in general, though. It's almost impossible for that to provide the ride experience necessary to be an E ticket.

Talking about E tickets ends up being subjective at this point, though. Something could invariably be an E ticket and still be a bad ride, so I guess it doesn't really matter if Smuggler's Run is an E-ticket or not. It's still a mediocre to bad ride.

ToT is greater than the sum of its parts. SR is a glorified video game that you can play on a multitude of home gaming platforms. Not that I can obviously expect you to see the difference between a pinnacle of Imagineering and Smuggler's Run, which if not for the source material, could show up at any mall in the country.

No, it won't.
