Thanks! I thought it was at the back of the Cantina building. Which, in turn, I thought was right in the middle of things.

The two huge ride buildings are at the edge of the land. So I assumed everything else was therefore in the middle of the land, bar the berm between TSL and SW:GE . Hmmm, I need to go look at a map again.

Judging from comments from CM's, I think I've got the placing figured out. @The_Mesh_Hatter can correct me if I'm wrong.

The building just to the south of the Falcon ride circled in blue is Oga's Cantina. Directly south and west of that is a big open plot of land outlined in red that was recently paved over with blacktop according to bioreconstruct's Twitter. I've edited one of bioreconstruct's photos taken last week.

If they start building the dinner theater restaurant on June 1st, 2019, it's not going to open for another two years. My bet is we don't see the restaurant open in this spot until 2022 at the very earliest. Maybe not for five or ten years, based on how Burbank lowball and defer and delay their investments in the parks.

I still can’t figure out where that is at DHS though.

The second picture, with added coloured outlines is at DL. And I thought that where the Rivers of America is would be roughly where TSL is at DHS.

Extrapolating from that assumption, I placed Oga’s slap bang in the middle of GE at DHS. As in, half way between TSL and the big ride buildings. But clearly it isn’t!

DL and DHS are nearly identical, so, DL's version should be informative, but, here's DHS's in context... (Oga in red, empty TSR lot in yellow)

Ahhhh!

Well that explains it. I thought that the building in the middle with what looks like a domed roof with an odd shaped building attached to it was Oga’s. And that the TSR was going to be in the empty ground surrounded by the green trucks.

Thanks!

I'm sad that it appears the building on the far right, that serves as the third entrance to the DL version, will not be similarly accessible at DHS. I had assumed all along that they would atleast connect a path to it so you could still walk through but based on the latest photos it appears that the area on the far right (where the large yellow arrow is) may just be used as backstage.

I think he was talking about DL, where if you have an onsite room booked you get a SW:GE reservation slot.

Hm. I see where it could be read either way. @Kman101 - can you clarify what you were talking about? If I misunderstood you, I apologize.

I like the idea of opening at 6am instead of the reservation system very few can take part in, but of course if you have a $600 room a night you can get in

Disneyland has started employee previews today, and this morning they took a big group photo of the opening team of Star Wars Land.

Mr. Damaro, the Disneyland President, posted this photo to his Twitter.

Again, this is Disneyland, but it's a great view of how the finished product will look like swarmed with thousands of customers. Just add about 3,000 strollers and 2,000 electric mobility scooters to this photo. :cool:
