I don't get it. How will Disneyland even be walkable when Galaxy's Edge opens? Opening day alone will, in my mind, be in comparison to the infamous Black Sunday minus the news reporters making out with patrons.
I may go in mid July, so I'm curious about the answer to this as well.

My thought is it will be plenty walkable because everyone will be afraid to show up.

At some point you have to get away from using the same vehicle for destruction. This was the criticism about some of the aspects of the new films, just a rehash of the original trilogy. Also it would just be seen as a rip off of the original Star Tours.

So the new story aspect of the land is something I like.
I was just joking since 6 of the films feature a Death Star in some capacity, it just always shows up. I'm real happy that Hondo will be part of the Falcon ride. The worst thing a tie in ride can do is force the most popular characters into places they don't belong (Star Tours vs Adventures Continue).

If you look at 3-CPO's control panel in the main room, you will see it mentions a certain Flux Capacitor.

I’m terrible at video games, specifically racing or the driving kind. God bless anyone who has to deal with me on the first time I ride this... it will be a learning curve but I’m sure we’ll get through it.

If they don't, I say we all meet there for Life Day anyway dressed in our red robes. You totally know it's going to happen.

Exactly. It would make more sense if they just kept the park capacity at the amount it's currently at to help with the overall crowd distribution but that would mean less money for Disney so...

Sure, everyone wants to pilot or gun, but just wait until the piloting and shooting controls are compromised by enemy fire and it's up to the engineers to fix them and you look back and there are two four year olds in those seats.
I am 100% certain this ride is going to be fun for all involved. just a gut feeling that we should have faith on this one. I am also 96.7% certain that I am going to want to punch a stranger if they can't fix the dang thing. I WON'T PUNCH ANYONE. I'll just think about it. Briefly.

I have zero issues with her staying. The only thing I really haven't liked from the SW universe since she took over is portions of The Last Jedi. I think they are making a smart move slowing things down if for no other reason than to quiet the over the top SW fanbois for awhile.

TDA Exec: "How much square feet is there in star trek land?"
WDI contractor: "?" "Oh, you mean Galaxy's Edge. About 30000 square feet of streets and queue."
TDA Exec: "Great! We'll increase Disneyland capacity by 20000 people."

Since 8 was so divisive among fans, it'll be interesting to see how they get people excited about 9 as they were with 7 and 8. If 9 has the same reaction that it did with 8 then I could see some changes being made either at the executive level, or the direction they are going in, or maybe at their plans for future projects currently announced.
