I was wondering more about if there might be a security gate to get from the rest of the park into Galaxy's Edge (or vice versa - checking for alcohol?)

If not, though, what do you suppose the security gate near Critter Country would be for? Backstage?

Again I doubt its for GE, its not labeled for it. My guess is backstage security gate behind Splash.

There's still a road for backstage that runs between Disneyland Dr and the park. Likely just for that.

Posting with No inside info. Just my knowledge of how Disney works.

But how about a Disney Hotel Guest gate, early entry into Galaxy Edge...

There is a CM gate currently accessible from the Mickey and Friends Structure South West corner next to the tram path. Have guests use the new Magic Way Bridge from the 3 Hotels to get to the area, and then have a couple of hours a day "guest route" backstage to the border of Critter Country and Galaxy Edge.

Nice perk that could add to the room rates based on demand....

Just a thought.

Interesting idea. Wonder if they'd actually do something like that, I have doubts in my mind, but who knows....

Not sure if it can be done logistically, but it matches up with how the execs think... On heck of a Hotel Perk to stay on property. And now with no 4th Hotel, could bring in some new money.

Interesting idea. I think the biggest obstacle would be at the SE corner of M&F. If they take the new Cleo escalator down to the plaza, they would have to cross the new tram path inside M&F. But if they route them through the 2nd floor of Cleo across the new bridge to M&F they would have to descend the stairs with no elevator. Wheelchair parties would have to take either the Cleo or M&F elevator down to the ground and cross the new tram path inside M&F.

Once through Winston Gate, they could be routed South down the sidewalk behind the RotR queue to a presumed gate near the Critter Country entrance to SW:GE.

But even though the sidewalk seems to be fairly tidy from what we can see, there is still a lot of exposed infrastructure opposite Winston Gate. I know these things are visible when the RunDisney events traverse backstage areas, but this is a little different. I'm not sure seeing the empty back side of spires is the best introduction to the new land. I wonder if offering access by monorail to hotel guests and traversing the hub and Frontierland would be better.

Honestly, though, they might just offer early morning access every day, depending on operating hours and the need for nightly maintenance. I know when they have done the 24-hour parties certain big attractions had to close for a minimum number of hours every night.

But I think everyone is right--TDA will be looking at every option.

Hmmmm.

BLD2019-00018 Disney - Critter Country / Splash Mountain - Tenant Improvement: Create new door opening to lead to ride, securite gate, guards at selected locations, 100 sq.ft rock work (plaster).
I would say no, it looks like backstage access from behind Splash to me. Permits for GE are labeled as "SW - DL Frontierland Expansion".

Also as of now there is no separate entrance for SW:GE. You have to go through the main gate like everyone else. ;)
Doesn't sound like backstage to me- they wouldn't be installing 100sq feet of rock work for backstage. But I could be wrong.

I’m assuming this would replace the sales center that used to be in Downtown Disney?
More than likely. It is in a good location, right off the GCH entrance to DCA. They can make exceptions for its use, and adding attending a DVC presentation is easy to do.

Question is, how many guests used the exercise room, and will they replace it somewhere else at the GCH?

That is likely the correct location, which has been an empty space for several years.

The fitness center moved and eliminated the Grizzly Game Arcade. The fitness center moved again and eliminated Pinocchio's Workshop (daycare).

I hope the single rider line moves as well as the one for Racers...that's really the only way we ride it.
