He's gonna come back with a few dozen paragraphs screaming at everyone, get ready
No, I'm not going to scream at anyone, everyone has their own way of processing reality. Mine could be right or it could be wrong. I do know that you didn't attempt to "correct" my evil outlook or inability to state myself clearly, but, you did choose to ridicule me. Thanks for that.

You got it

I've tried many times in the past, and have since learned it's always in vain

Thank god it’s not worth caring about. Imagine if we did.
Passive aggressiveness does not become you, Martin. I do understand that I didn't express myself in a sufficient way that I could make people understand my point, but, I suppose that your two or three word sentences are far more significant then my sometimes unsuccessful wordy explanations. And yes, I can imagine if we did. Absolutely nothing would be different. I didn't see it as a problem and you folks do. It doesn't matter who is correct, it isn't going to stop the backside of that land from being any different.

This shows how low Disney has sunk.
Could you imagine if they had left the "backside of water" in JC completely exposed like this, allowing guests to see all of the inner hydrogen and oxygen atoms?
What? Excluding the fact the Studios has always been about "showing how the show is put together," hence the exposed show buildings, you can clearly see the unthemed backside of Everest, the unthemed backstage at World Showcase from Test Track, etc. You can't see this stuff while standing IN the park though.

It was a joke... Disney didn't actually have to do anything for the "backside of water" to be "complete"

New video from Disneyland, showing aerial from a couple weeks ago.

These aerial shots are great, although they are about a month old now. That said, it's best to watch this video on mute. Anyone who went to D23 Expo or looked at the photos of the giant Star Wars Land model online knows what structure in that first photo is the queue entry for ROTR.



And yet he continues to blabber about a queue bend 50 yards away and thinks that is the queue entrance. He just needs to be silent and let the photos speak for themselves.

I had a very short, but interesting conversation with a CM hosting a VIP tour on our recent visit. We were both waiting for our parties to finish riding A.S.S in HS. This guy was not your average young CM... more like in his late 40's to early 50's. I know that does not equate to years of experience or reliability of his knowledge, but the way he spoke and carefully selected what to share, mixed in with a few "not at liberty to share more" led me to believe that what he was saying was more than just speculation. So... here are a few bullet points from that conversation:

  • Don't expect the usual AP previews, AP events or soft openings
  • Don't expect to be able to use FP+ for the land or the rides when it opens
  • Disney is expecting the crowds for SW:GE to be larger than what Universal saw for the opening of Potter
  • Up to this point, MK has always had the highest attendance of the four parks. Disney is expecting that HS might actually surpass MK in attendance because of SW:GE.
  • Don't believe the wait times that are posted. Disney manipulates them on purpose (Edit: forgot to include this in my original post)

As far as rumors go, aren't the plaids just high priced bus drivers?

It will be phycially impossible for studios to surpass MK in attendance.

Improbable but not impossible. Sure the park’s capacity doesn’t hold enough if they were both maxed out all day every day but there are other factors. MGM’s capacity was roughly 75% of Magic’s. Assuming with Galaxy’s Edge that Studios regains the same capacity; If it runs at capacity all year, Magic would have to maintain over 75% full to stay ahead. Or if Studios has a higher per person cycle, they could be letting in more than Magic’s 100k capacity or so, a massive rope drop and leave crowd could do that. With the projected crowds of capacity closures and 8 hour lines for a year, it could actually happen. I’d still say it’s highly unlikely, but it’s not impossible.

No FastPass would be a great move.

No AP preview is a bad move. For me.
This was to be expected since they didn't have AP previews for TSL, and I actually loved the Passholder Play Time, I hope they do the same thing for SWGE. We got so much time with no one around, rode SDD like 5 times in a row.
