Seriously, how successful does your lobotomy have to be to be able to sit in your cubicle each day and write this stuff? :oops:

"As soon as work is completed at Walt Disney World, Imagineers will head back to California to complete their mission at Disneyland Resort where Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on Friday, Jan. 17.

Between now and then, we’ll have lots more to share about this immersive, multi-platform experience so keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for updates."


This big delay has inspired me to start building my own immersive, multi-platform experience in my own home this summer.

Hopefully by Labor Day it will look like this. Stay tuned!

Which is the one with rabies?

Oh wait, I see it at two o'clock...

The second half of the post you quoted explained why fake greenery is an issue. Seven Dwarfs features fake greenery and a fire resulted with fireworks fallout. Galaxy's Edge is closer to the fireworks than Seven Dwarfs meaning that its mountain range covered in fake greenery could potentially be a huge fire hazard.
SWGE burning down as a result of misfired fireworks , worse things could happen ?

Anyone else getting weird Neiman Marcus Star Wars ads with see-through tops? I edited out the inappropriate parts, but it would seem the entire ad is inappropriate as it is. What have I been Googling?

Isn't the Parks Blog great?!? It's like this little gift of comedy that we get from Celebration, Florida every week.

I would pay $100 bucks to take a tour of their Celebration cubicle farm, and for the grand finale' to the tour they would let you stand behind a big window in their conference room and watch them craft these statements. They have to be given some basic facts and info to start from, in this case that the big new E Ticket that was supposed to open last month is still totally screwed up and won't be opening until next year, ruining everyone's vacation plans and causing alarm.

But then they take that bucket of steaming crap and dump it on their conference room table, and they mold it and work it and shape it and build it up into this beautiful series of words and paragraphs that make that steaming pile of crap into the literary equivalent of a gorgeous marble statue of Mickey Mouse releasing Peace Doves into a summer breeze. Ahora!

They are talented people to keep doing that with words week after week. I'd love to know what anti-depressants they are on to keep sane.
Thankfully they are so good at weaving their tapestries of BS, because they likely failed out of every other course in business school.

DHS has no excuse to not have any greenery then so it better have some. Honestly, though, I don’t think greenery even would’ve been a real problem.
Neither will have any greenery unless they rush some in. Both parks were designed to have as close to identical as possible expansions to both save on money and to prevent one land from being an improvement over the other. This is ultimately one of two big reasons why SW:GE doesn't begin at Star Tours in Hollywood Studios, then wrap around to Streets of America with a middle entrance/exit behind Muppets. It was a vastly better option for Hollywood Studios, but was scrapped.

Maybe I'm nieve... but I was under the impression that most of the landscaping on SDMT was real plants (not plastic). I was under th impression that it was some of the (real) grass on the mountain that had caught fire. I wouldn't imagine that plastic greenery would catch fire the way the foliage caught fire on SDMT... again, I could be totally wrong...
I'm not sure. All I know is that the plans mid 2014 were to have lots of plastic greenery (including huge faux trees), and just after the fire that was all scrapped.

The 7 Dwarfs fire as I recall looked like a big blaze because it was next to miniature trees.

They shoot off big flamethrowers next to the castle. I'm sure they can have some shrubs in Galaxy Edge.

Stop making excuses.
The issue now is that there are no irrigation pipes for real plants, so it would be difficult to add anything other than faux. However, with the current reception I wouldn't put it beyond them to try to add a lot of green in a rush.

Ouch.

That's moronic. If the lands are different, people will want to experience both. Disney is run by imbeciles.

That poster is still the best thing out of the land. I hope the attraction is as great as that image sells it to be. Disappointed WDW will get the attraction over a month before Disneyland, but I won't be in the park again until the summertime so what do I honestly care.
Based on the lackluster crowds at DLR it’s not surprising they decided to send the resources to FL to finish there first. Gotta start paying off that billion dollars :greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy:

Does anyone know when the AP blackout gets lifted? I'm going mid-August and crossing my fingers the crowds will still be light then. Oh, and I'm also going to WDW December 7th. That should be fun. o_O
What I could find online:

SoCal select blacked out until 9/3
Southern CA 8/26
Deluxe 8/19
Signature is not blacked out all summer

There were some rumblings that they may cancel some of the blackout dates due to attendance issues. I think it was Micechat that said area businesses were asking Disney to remove blackouts because of low crowds and they did apparently remove some of the CM blackouts.

I really don’t think they will remove blackouts, here’s why:
-Flex passes: it’s clear that long term DL wants a majority of their passholders to be flex passeres, if that happens, DL will be able to survey local hotels and release tickets to keep the parks consistently busy but not mobbed every weekend. I fully expect that eventually if you do not book your flex dates two months in advance your date will be sold out.
-If they’ve already written off FY2019, they will want to look FY2020 look better by keeping low numbers this summer so as to proudly report % increase in attendance next year.
-There is only one month left until deluxe passers get back in

I hope you are right. I’ll be there 8/10 for a few nights and would love to see crowds like they have been lately.

There’s a pic floating around of the storm troopers installed in the hangar bay and the room is not as big as some are making it out to be (*cough* Jim Hill *cough*). 3 rows of troopers with a fence installed about 5-10 feet in front of them.

You mean a lot of SWGE rumors are crap?
You mean like how the Falcon was to have hundreds of interactive elements?
Or how Smugglers Run was Sooooo much more advanced than Star Tours.
