So it sounds like they decided to prioritize WDW since Disneyland isn’t packed and swarming as expecting? I mean... the dates aren’t that far apart... so odd.
What's more interesting to me is that they announced it now instead of D23 next month. I mean why announce it now, that is the part that is odd.

As for why WDW over DLR, I assume it was a coin flip decision.

I think it’s fairly obvious , people aren’t going to travel to Disneyland as proven by SWGE poor launch , they will open when those APs aren’t blocked to have the built in crowds. WDW on the other hand people will plan vacations around and want to make sure it’s packed as early as possible

Could also be that whatever the change was was faster to implement because whatever needed correcting hadn't been completed at WDW but had been completed at WDW. I guess it's also possible that WDW had more personnel to throw at the issue diverting people from MMRR. Further, WDW is currently in the process of building three trackless attractions, they may have simply had the expertise on site. Not sure if any/all of those are true... just conjecturing...

It's because it's relatively downer news. It's perfect for a press-release 6 months prior, but up on stage it would elicit some Awwws or Booos. Especially since everyone would be hoping that it would be "any day now" at DL.

It’s all very disappointing. Can they fire Chapek now?

That I don't buy, I'm sorry. Its still going to be brought up at D23 anyways especially now because there are dates attached.

I have to say I am let down by this. I bought a pass in June so I could ride this one with the expectation of the fall opening (that Disney themselves said) being honest. I will still be able to go on it for a decent amount of time, but having the opening of the major ride 9 months after the land opened is a bit of a letdown.

This post of them mocking a tourist that will miss RotR for Disney opening their ride incredibly late (and without advance notice) is insulting to paying customers who spend a lot of time and money trying to plan their trip.

Agreed. I assume they announced it now in hopes that it's not too late to still convince people to book vacations at WDW for Dec/Jan. If you wait another month and a half before making such announcements, it may be too late for people to plan vacations in that time. Maybe at D23 they announce passholder previews at WDW for RotR or some contest to be the first to experience RotR?

Where did Disney actually say ROTR would be opening in Fall? It sounds more like you believed a rumor instead of what Disney actually said, which was "later this year".

Same thoughts here...

That is the only reason I can see it being announced now, try to get more Dec/Jan bookings for WDW.

The DLR portion was just a tack on, because if they didn't include it everyone would be up in arms. My opinion anyways.

Who says Disney is officially announcing anything about ROTR before D23? I take that info in the tweet of "real soon" to mean that we'll likely get an update at D23.

If anything I'd imagine they'd announce the same thing they always have about ROTR, "coming later this year" at D23 next month. D23 happens the week before DHS opens their SW:GE.
So looks like you re wrong... again. Lol. It’s like deja vu. This wait and see approach doesn’t seem to work for you. Join the “where there’s smoke there’s fire” team.
