All of the pictures I've posted were found in the app files of the recent version of Play Disney Parks.

This is the mystery building attached to the garage. Anyone know what's inside. I think it's too big and has too much of an onstage presence to not be a public space. There was mention of some "flex" space, maybe this is what this is. Perhaps it could be quickly fitted to fill various needs- sabre shop, cantina, meet and greet, etc. Any thoughts?

So Star Wars Land... looks cool! (This is coming from someone who likes but doesn’t love Star Wars).

I was just wondering if there is any ballpark date/month that Rise of the Resistance is projected/speculated to open? How late into this year? I’m going in mid December with a bit of trepidation regarding crowds, so I keep hoping Resistance is open a solid month or so before we go. Sorry, just can’t bring myself to sort through 907 pages...

Latest rumours on here have been a potential December opening, but I'm sure that's very much still up in the air. It honestly seems too early to get a very good read on an even half-way accurate date. I'm going end of October/early November and am trying to hold out some faint hope that it may be open or in a soft preview state.

Best place to look for that sort of news is always the rumors thread:

Hmm so map shows 2 rides(one not ready), and then a bunch of food places and "2 experiences" That will set you back $100 to $300? I am not in a hurry, I am sure there will be plenty that are, but honestly, I wish they had worked in something for younger kids too, like a play area since there are no longer any in HS

As per the new Disney park expansion standard...

- Two Rides
- Two Shops
- A bunch of places to eat.

See also: Pandora
- Two Rides
- One Shop
- Two places to eat.

Toy Story Land
- Two Rides (Toy Story Mania doesn't count since that was open already)
- One place to eat
- and they are apparently building a shop one day.

New Fantasy Land
- Two Rides (Under the Sea, Mine Train Coaster) I don't count story time with Belle as a ride.
- Two places to eat (Be our Guest and Gaston's tavern)
- One shop off of Gaston's tavern.

This is the new standard. Where is the innovation?

With all of the places to eat Disney is slowly becoming a giant food court and an expensive outlet mall.

SWGE has 2 shops? There are 3 experiences - Cantina, Android building, Light sabre building; plus multiple shops - First Order cargo bay, Resistance supplies, and multiple vendors in the market place. All of these are part of the immersive experience in BSO.

WDW's Adventureland only had two rides until it was 'plussed' with the carpet spinner. DCA's Cars Land had three, but one had to be quickly killed off and later replaced.

Frontierland only has two rides.

It's a long time practice and one that was followed by Universal with both Wizarding Worlds and Springfield.

I'm still pressed that they changed the DL map for this franchise. Each land was so original, clever, and charming. I understand why they built Galaxy's Edge and where it fits into the brand/theme parks but not physically into DL. It wasn't even Disney's IP until semi recently. Oh well.
AttractionMovieHow old was the IP
Sleeping Beauty Castle (1955)*Sleeping Beauty (1959)-4
Mr. Toads Wild Ride (1955)*The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)6
Alice in Wonderland (1958)*Alice in Wonderland (1951)7
Peter Pan's Flight (1955)*Peter Pan (1953)2
Mad Tea Party (1955)*Alice in Wonderland (1951)4
Roger Rabit Cartoon Spin (1994)*Roger Rabbit (1988)6
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1999)*Bought the IP in 2001-2
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (1998)Toy Story 2 (1999)-1
Magic Carpets of Aladdin (2001)Aladdin (1992)9
Stitch's Great Escape! (2004)Lilo and Stitch (2002)2
And many more
Disney bought Star Wars ~6.5 years ago in October of 2012. As weird as this sounds here are some things that Disney opened in less time after acquiring or creating as an IP:
