The way they described the Falcon ride, it sounded like the riders would be able to control/steer the ship and fire the lasers. I'm hoping that's actually and it's real control, no M:S like. That admitted would be a bit like Buzz Lightyear (moving the vehicle and firing) but on a much much higher level.
I felt that the Millenium Falcon ride was like Star Tours - like a motion simulator except you control the motion of the Falcon (within certain parameters) and things correspond on the screen through the front window. Other passengers "shoot" and you get a rating afterwards.
It will be interesting to see - I liked the mockups of the merchants row and dining areas.
