I wish I was at the shareholders meeting. I hear they do a Q&A at the end. I would have asked why do reservations at Disneyland and not disneyworld and why doesn't the disneyland version have early magic hours.
The term "soft opening" is for avid fans who are aware that sometimes an attraction opens early without any big fanfare. The general public wouldn't know what a "soft opening" was. "Soft openings" are also a bit spotty with no guarantee of being open from one day to the next or even one hour to the next. Unlike a soft opening, Disney is committed to everything except RotR being officially open.
Always fun to argue with future people who may or may not exist.Imagine this scenario:
It's mid-September. Our insiders tell us that SWL is ready to open except RotR. They say RotR will be ready at the time that everyone's been expecting, sometime later in the Fall, around late October.
You know there would be moaning and screaming...
"Why can't they open it without RotR?!""Why would they keep the Falcon ride away from us just for that?!""Why can't they do soft openings without RotR?!""If they open now without RotR it will help with crowds! All the looky-loos will get the shops and cantina out of their system!! So.. OPEN NOW!!!!!!!!1!!1"
So, I find all this hair-on-fire screaming and moaning about an earlier-than-expecting opening without RotR to be quite disingenuous.
Sometimes, fanbases are, or appear to be, perennially complaining not just about minute details of the Canon, but about everything. This sometimes relates to fake fannishness: some people just don't like a piece of fiction, yet insist on …tvtropes.org
Nope. Super excited that we moved our trip up for the free dining, and now we will be able to see at least part of the new land. And eat.Anyone else feel a little deflated that they’re rushing the opening date and RotR won’t be open for an undisclosed amount of time?
I haven't seen anyone acknowledge the chance that Galaxy's Edge might soft open in advance of Smuggler's Run being ready.I am using English so anyone with a basic understanding of the language should understand.
Who cares about September guests? What about May guests? Should the open the land with no rides so they can experience some of the land.
They advertised late fall and now it is opening at WDW in the late summer. Are you going to WDW in September? It seem you really want it to be open then.
I believe they should open Galaxy’s Edge when it’s done
Scenerio 1: The complete land opens
People want to be the first to see this land and the opening is crazy busy, but the full land is open to spread the crowds around through out the whole land. Full capacity is achievable. Even still some guest are not able to ride both attractions
Media is able to judge the completed land as a whole
One ride is open.
People who want to be first to see the land come and the opening is crazy busy, however there is only one ride open. This reduces the capacity of the land. Now there is not an additional attraction that pushes 20,000+ Guests through it a day. Due to capacity issue more people are turned away from the land. Everyone that does make it into the land will not be able to ride the single open attraction due to demand. People are upset they went to Star Wars land and couldn’t ride the ride. Since most people go to Disney for the rides they are understandable upset.
Media reviews Galaxy’s Edge with the caveat that is isn’t finished.
How the entire SW universe feels about those announced dates..
Well we check out 8/28... so happy to be checking out before the day of madness, but just hoping the early part of the week is not tooI think the opposite. They're trying to dilute the surge by splitting it in half.
So glad I check out on August 24, which is check-in day for the lunacy week.
That’s always the wording. All Disney-owned resorts are included.Can someone clarify this...
"During Extra Magic Hours guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can spend extra time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios enjoying select attractions."
Do you think they are saying screw the peasants who are staying at the value and moderate resorts?
