Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

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.
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.

I'll be honest, it was intended. It is so tiring to see the foolishness that is generated by these boards and the degree that people feel the need to know every little detail before it becomes a public experience. Yes, I know it's my opinion and my opinion isn't that of everyone, but, once in awhile it just gets to me. I am not going to apologize because I want the discussions to stay relevant. Just because someone wants to know some random thing does not make it relevant. Maybe if that poster had said why they wanted to know it would be easier to understand. Without knowing the reason it just becomes a ???????

Do we know how tall the highest point in the land will be?

And it is real tiring when you belittle everyone else's opinions on those topics and then write paragraphs about why you think it isn't important or why it shouldn't matter to us. Some of us like these details and they do matter to us which is why we discuss them. Sorry if it bothers you. Just move on.

The height of the Star Wars rock work is certainly relevant to the topic of this thread. It is not your job to monitor the threads for what you deem irrelevant. We are not on your lawn.

The SWGE entrance queue might have a backstage overflow area, which would make a lot of sense.

While watching the DSNY Newscast today, I was reminded of this backstage gate near the Grand Avenue entrance to SWGE:

348338

...so then I checked out the Google Earth images of the area behind that gate:

348339

With some "box shrubs" and "temporary tent" coverings, they could have of a lot switchback space there. They could even have a stage with entertainment and the like, as well as food and beverages, etc., for the people in that queue area.

Have our insiders heard anything pointing to this? Do our experts have thoughts on the feasibility?

Possibly, but I think they'll need to still maintain food supplies/waste truck access for Baseline Taphouse and SciFi diner through that alley.

They 'could' do it, but I think they'd prefer to just have the line snake further away throughout the the park.

this is what DCA did for the Guardians Mission Breakout opening months.

Hi guys I’m new to this forum but I was following for few days.

Are there any rumors/insiders info about the highest vantage point available for visitors? The reason I’m asking is if the visitors will be able to see the millennium falcon from above but without being able to see structures outside the SWGE so that the immersion remains intact.

While outdoors, guests should only be on the ground level.

Welcome,
I've wondered about the row of windows seen behind the Falcon on a second level:348576
Could be part of the queue, or a swanky up-charge space. We'll see in a few months.

I'm pretty sure one of our insiders said we'll be looking out of the second floor onto the land when inside the queue.

Also, next to the exit on the left side, there will be a raised area like a stage. Don't know if there will be guest access to it.
I put out that same idea about those windows a while ago on the California thread so you may be confusing it with that- I don't remember anyone confirming it.
Here's the stage area I think you're talking about via Bioreconstruct and model:348658348659

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.
You do know there's such a thing as Trivia, right?

It's totally possible to be fascinated with information like how tall the Castles are in the different parks without looking at them clinically. Knowing the height of the tallest spire in Star Wars Land amounts to a Fun Fact, and to some people knowing it is . . . Fun.

I'm curious about the height too, if anyone happens to know. I wonder how it stacks up in the skyline of Disney attractions.

In your case you explained why and didn't expect the world to know what type of info you are looking for and why. Your example is fine and I suspect could also cover how much water is going to be in the toilet bowls. People didn't give me the benefit of that doubt. So fine, but, it seems that being a trivia buff myself, I see no possible time when that information would be useful unless someone is getting ready to rant about how they will show from outside the land. I suspect they will, life goes on!

You know what they could do. They could re-theme Muppets to be a Star Wars based Muppets show. and use that as a queue time killer. Think of Dumbo in MK. You get in line at Muppets go through the show and dump you out right inside SWGE. Oh well, sounded good for a minute in my head at least. LOL

That was my hope with Star Tours and having the option
