I suppose they could have a screen at the front of the passenger compartment that acts as a 'window' into the front of the craft, showing the driver and his view out the front window.
you mean like this...?

It actually would be cool to have a themed driver.
And it’s been confirmed hasn’t it? A female RX droid.

Finally! GS reopening on March 1 and booking on Oct 28!
2 possibilities:
A. GS will be fully booked on Oct 28 or soon after, at least for the first few months, if not for the entire year.
B. Not A.

My money is on B because, to summarize what I've said in the past:
1. There are not that many people who can afford 3K per night;
1.5 There are not that many people who can afford 3K per night but is willing to give up the 3 bedroom grand villa at a Disney deluxe in exchange for a standard sized room with no pool for the same money;
2. There are not that many people who like sequel SW role playing so much that they want to do it for 2 days straight;
2.5 There are not that many people who want the prison-like covid lockdown experience to be stuck inside with no window anywhere for 2 full days and not be allowed to go outside except for the regimented 4 hour Batuu visit.
3. There are not that many sequel SW fans whose family members are also all sequel SW fans as well and want to be in this thing and skip Magic Kingdom;
4. There are not that many Disney fans who has the time and energy to spend 2 nights and exactly 2 nights at one hotel and then move somewhere else -- that is, bother with the split stay;
5. No jogging outside or exercising equipment inside or landscaping or pool.

I will be very impressed to find A to be true, and especially if it persists. Because when I first tried to book a trip for October, a few months back, there was not a room left. But now, there is all kinds of availability. So, I'm imagining this guy who takes the money out of his kids' college fund to book GS, only to feel buyers remorse later and put the money back.

I don't want to stay there, but I'm interested in visiting and eating an expensive meal there, like with Space 220. Hopefully, Disney will open that Crown of Something dining room for a fixed course breakfast to outside guests during the Batuu visit of hotel guests. (Fixed course so that they can get people out of there in time).

... but it only takes about 1/10 of 1 percent of the total WDW attendance in an average year to fill the hotel, so even with all those "not that many's" there may still be enough to fill the hotel.

I got a similar DVC email though I didn't get the AP one. They are giving us the right to be the crash test dummies. Unless, of course, the price is somehow less early on. I suspect it won't be

I didn’t get an email despite being AP and DVC (which is typical). Did it say if you book online or call?

Darn. I just want to book it for early June for my dad, husband, and brother.
