This just in...The "Smuggler's Run" (Falcon) attraction has 3 separate entrances! Fast pass, Single rider, and Stand by and they each have their own way in!

One of the entrances is through the previously mentioned "vent" in the side of the mountain area (see image #1) and the other 2 are behind the Falcon.(see image #2)

Educated GUESS - the "Fastpass" entrance will be the "vent" one since it is right next to a turntable. Not confirmed.

*NOTE image #1, I initially was guessing at what it was for.

This was posted in the DL SWGE discussion and goes along with the questions of guest flow into and out of the show building. I dont know how accurate it is just passing the info along.

The discussion spanned November 25th- 26th (page #586) and between myself and BrianLo, I think we nailed it. (Also, I know these threads are huge, but I think if you at least searched my posts, BrianLo's, and Britain's, you'll find deductions on most key points of this project well ahead of other sources and with confirmations by Martin.)

So, on the Q1 Conference Call, twice it was mentioned that SWL in Orlando was opening this fiscal year. This fiscal year ends Sept 30.

Edit. I missed that Bob whispered a correction. So, that means it won't open before Oct 1.

Voice recording of conference call...


See 31:45 for SWL.

I'm so pumped - this is starting to feel real!

Before WDW changed their ticket system to a dynamic pricing model, bought a 3-day park hopper that's good through 2019. Didn't have accommodation booked but was getting antsy about on-property rates, so bit the bullet and used Marriott points at the Swan. Being able to walk to DHS and having early FP+ access should be huge. The only thing missing is airfare–and confirmation that the land will be open by 12/15/19...

Do we know how tall the highest point in the land will be?
While we are checking that out... can we find out how much water will be in the toilet bowls in SWL. What? Seems just as relevant. However, in fairness, if that question will be to determine if anything will be visible from outside the land, of course, it will... everything depends on where one is standing at the time. The important thing is that we bring our inner child with us when we go to a Disney park. That enables us to easily not notice stuff like that because we have suspended disbelief long enough to enjoy life and not let OCD take it over.

See correction above.
Great catch, I listened a dozen times and didn't hear him whisper that correction - I hope you're right, @MisterPenguin . The woman speaking isn't really that smooth with delivering information. Also, did I hear her correctly that they are not allocating additional funding to Ops for the opening of these lands? Doesn't the seem odd?

No, they are indeed increasing expenditure that comes with opening the land. They're not going to spend a lot on marketing. Bob joked that him tweeting it's open would be sufficient given how popular the IP is and the buzz already around it.

All you have to do is look at all the new forum members who are Star Wars fans infiltrating our forums with questions and information. The buzz is strong with them.

Sorry, not really the same. Disney keeps things under the height that requires having lights on the structure. While it doesn't make sense to have flashing lights on top of the castle. You could go higher in galaxys edge because it's a space port, so it makes sense if there are lights. Actually I would expect them. So comparing it to the water in the toilets is a bit unfair. You might not care, and that's ok too.

Spoken like a true Jedi.
Thanks for the correction, I guess I just had a hard time following along with her delivery. I got the Marketing jokes....ha, good one Bob! Too bad they stuttered across the opening information. Even with Bob's correction Oct 1 and any time after didn't give us much more than we already new, I don't think anyone thought it was going to open in September.

Well, the next time someone asks if it will be open for their Sep 20th vacation, we can tell them Bob Iger says 'no.'

Having a humor cramp today? That was a facetious comparison. What it was about was the irrelevance of the concern to begin with. It is not going to improve or lower quality if they have lights or they don't. I might have missed that part where anyone was talking about elevation concerning lights. I don't see anything that is going to be higher then either the MK Castle or even SSE. If it is... cool and like you said it would be fine and in line with the land. You were also right they I don't care which is what promoted my post to begin with. One thing that Disney has a lot of experience with is making things look bigger then they actually are. Nothing stops them from putting light on it even if it is shorter, but, I don't think they want that difficult maintenance situation.

I know it was facetious. But you made that comparison to belittle the question. My point was, it's fine you don't care or think it really doesn't matter. But to others it might be interesting to know. What you feel is "irrelevance" others might feel differently. Your post came off as very dismissive of the poster asking the question, that was the problem.
