I have a trip lined up for Disney in October, and while I understand Galaxies Edge will not be offering Fastpasses, will park capacity be an issue? Like if I have a RnR fastpass am I potentially locked out of the park because so many people are trying to get into GE?

We don’t really know yet. Until it opens at DL and they see how it works, there are probably several possible ideas as to how it will work at WDW.

My hunch is there will be a separate line for Galaxy’s Edge. But they will need to factor that into the park capacity. But phased closures of DHS are possible, even likely. And in that case, staying onsite, having an ADR and/or FPs should at least give you a decent chance at getting in. Onsite guests are the last to be denied entry.

Not sure if this has been discussed yet, but the reasoning for opening SWGE sooner than later is that SR is ready to go and ROTR is behind schedule because of its complexity. They have stated the SR is based off proven technology that is reliable and stable as appose to ROTR with its new ride system and technology. Can someone tell me then what SR is based off of. The only thing I can remotely think of is the green mission on Mission Space and I know it's not the same. But I am thinking it may use some of the same technologies.

SWL in DL was supposed to be open this Summer. Until Summer passes, then RotR is not behind schedule.

Seems like a mashup of Star Tours-type vehicle with screen with interactive elements of Mission: Space

SW lacks this element - I cant think of a single moment in the movies where the characters go shopping.
Granted there are not many, but here's a few I could think of...
Qui Gon Jinn shopping for space ship parts in Episode I
Luke and Uncle Owen buying droids in Episode IV
Rey bartering junk for food in Episode VII.

...issues with communication shutting down the ride vehicles all the time from what I have heard.
Correct me if I am wrong of course...
So would this be considered the fault of the RCS/ wayside computer? Or maybe it’s working as intended, and something keeps tripping it. I’m not sure which option is more serious. Hopefully they can iron it out soon.

[BEGIN RAMPANT UNSUBSTANTIATED GUESSWORK] Before, when we thought MMRR was smooth sailing, I guessed that ROTR’s issues had to do with a feature unique to itself. With the word that MMRR is having issues too, I wonder if it is a ride control system engineering issue shared between both attractions. [/END RAMPANT UNSUBSTANTIATED GUESSWORK]

With the plan of only letting people in for limited time slots, how long can they sit on there hands and not go phase 2 with this to expand and make more money on this? I just can’t see modern Disney not wanting to capitalize on this and get as many people and their money in this land.

Two people need to be fired -- the person who greenlighted Andy's back yard and the person who didn't push for a whole Star Wars fifth gate.
