Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

yeah. This is probably a good idea. Don't think DL really has any choice but to do something like this to make it at least a bit manageable.

I expect DHS to implement the same system for entry. I am not sure that it makes sense for 10k people to stand outside the entry of SWGE for 12 hours a day. Guests are not spending money if standing in one place.

Also, OC Register just confirmed in this article that even though Disneyland will sell elaborate costume in SW:GE, guests will not be allowed to wear them in the park at all.

Does anyone know if WDW will still adhere to this policy too? It seems pretty dumb to me to put so much emphasis on immersion, role-playing, and in-universe merchandise and then tell guests not to wear or use said merchandise.

Westcoaster has an update up and I noticed what appears to be bathrooms off the backside of the Resistance queue in the area I have speculated could serve as overflow space (and now possibly overflow toilets).

That backstage area doesn't have an easy way to lead guests to (unless you're creating a path through Muppets)

If Disney plans on doing backstage overflow, I think the easiest and most out-of-the-way spot would be between SWGE and GMR
You could even use the closed off second half of Pixar Place for it (or even all of Pixar Place)

Now imagine if you could queue yourself up via the app to enter SWL once you're in the park, not unlike mobile order and hitting the button "I'm here" to let them know to put your order together. Then Disney could push a notification to you where you would have a set amount of time (30-60 minutes?) to arrive at the entrance to the land or your spot would be given to the next person in line. I don't believe they'll actually do anything like that, but it would be nice if they could figure something out OTHER than just having to wait in an 8-hour line to HOPE you will get into the land.
Virtual Queue is happening for DHS. In fact, DHS was planned to have it before DL.

DL confirmed the virtual queue just today. I would imagine its more to control crowds going into the land instead of allowing the land to be overrun with people. This would allow a better experience for all.
And less angry guests complaining to cast members they've been waiting 4h just to get inside the land and lil Timmy doesn't have his wagon
 
This is way late to the current discussion, but what happened to the table service resturant? Seems like an odd decision to table that (oh yes I did). They could have charged pretty much whatever they wanted and reservations would be filled 180days out all the time

As for why they didn't build it? We know not.

But, it's clear it wasn't even constructed at all. So, they definitely cut it, or, decided to open it later, like with the Star Wars Resort.

I would like to think it would be for guest flow. This is going to be a multi-year issue of trying get as many people through this land as possible. A sit down restaurant would slow down guest flow.

But if they are that concerned about capacity and getting people in and out of the land. They should already be starting on an expansion of the land and/or other parts of the park.

This decision strikes me as a way to keep passionate LARPers from taking it way too seriously, showing off their Napoleon Dynamite-esque dark force skills, causing brawls, scaring kids, knocking over grandmas, etc.
