    Because it cuts the capacity of the original ST2 ride in half? Continuity didn't bother me. I'd rather have a more varied choice of destinations in one ride.

    And worse, for the short term at least, it forces the Disney version of Star Wars down guests throats.

    I can't really believe this would be much different than picking Tomorrowland or Fantasyland sides of the Matterhorn. (Or Alpha and Omega on FL Space Mountain). As much as someone might want one time period over another, once one side appears to have a shorter line, people will find it more attractive. A self-solving problem.

    Did no one else pick up on this from the Disney Parks Blog article?

    I think that the line about there is another referring to a location might be a reference to Dagobah

    Personally I will ride the attraction less when it is fixed as I don't have to re-ride to get different scenes.

    When the Jakku scene went in rotation I rode the attraction 10 times at DL trying to get the scene but never did... if I'd got the scene on the first ride I probably would have only ridden the attraction 2 or 3 more times hence I made the queue longer.

    I don't see this as cutting the attraction capacity in half... more like Mission Space Green/Orange where you make an active decision to ride one or the other.

    And therein lies the beauty of not being a Star Wars fan. They could put up a picture of Jar Jar taking a leak in the bushes and as long as it was interesting and fun I really couldn't care less. I just hope it is good quality and exciting.

    It was locked into one sequence for 20+ years before ST2.0 came along.

    Are we now again riding ST1.0? Is this 1997? No. ST2.0 is supposed to be random, not fixed.

    Again, though, the ride will will still have tons of combinations, it’s just that you won’t be time traveling within a singular ride cycle. You’ll either see various (random) scenes from 1-6 or various (random? If not now, then when they add the Episode IX scenes) from 7-9. The idea of walking on the ride and not knowing what you’re getting into remains completely intact.

    Barring them eventually cutting the ride in half and making one side 1-6 and the other 7-9 (which I think is a bad idea), I’m struggling to see what the problem is. The overall variability is going up for a second time, and is strengthening the ride’s continuity in the process.

    But capacity doesn't really matter since a majority of guests will be happy riding either side. I agree being forced to ride the new sequence for the first few months is frustrating, but at least it's temporary.

    That's an assumption I purposely didn't assume.

    Hmmm...but wasn't the rumor that Star Tours was going to be rethemed after Galaxy's Edge opened? How far "down the line" are we talking?

    Ahhh...gotcha.
    I was assuming (and you know what happens when you do that), that it would be rethemed right away since it wouldn't be a part of the "land" and could confuse people. Thanks :)

    All this “news” means to me is that now I’m gonna have an excuse to ride Star Tours twice every time I go to DHS.

    Given the 2011 changes I'd be surprised if you didn't already.

    Lol! True story! :geek: My success or failure in that regard just depends on who I’m with on a given day. I just hope the rest of the sheeple go to the shorter line to balance wait times out, but I think you are probably right about capacity being cut (which is the only drawback with this for me personally).

    They can't afford to loose the capacity when Star Wars Land first opens.
