I agree with this 100%, and I am also surprised they also built such a big beautiful waste of space (at least on the West Coast where space is a luxury). It's amazing to look at, but it's hard not to imagine switchbacks in the place of all that rockwork!
?? I'm not sure what space you think is available. Rock work does not take up much space.
It seems the reason they're doing so well is astonishingly low crowd levels.
I think that is the reason they are booking out so late in the day, for sure.It seems the reason they're doing so well is astonishingly low crowd levels.
My boarding group (153) was called at 7:15pm. Of course, I didn’t take advantage of it. I was joined by two friends at that point.
Reliability and running more vehicles than FLI think that is the reason they are booking out so late in the day, for sure.
But I think the reason they’ve been able to make it through so many boarding groups recently is more-so related to improved attraction reliability
I’m pretty sure that it was a mistake to build the version of Star Wars Land that they built. I don’t think they’ll see a return on their investment for a long time to come....
I think this lesson should teach them that they better start hiring people to help them with theme park direction that actually know what they’re doing.
Cue the Coronavirus, and Millennium Falcon: Target Run is closing this Friday night with no AP blockouts and currently a 15 minute posted wait time. It's like June, 2019 all over again when they posted a 15 minute wait but it was more like 6 minutes each time I rode.
This was definitely not how Star Wars Land was supposed to go. If you had told any of us five years ago that Disneyland would open it's first new mega-land since New Orleans Square with two major new E Tickets and the Millennium Falcon E Ticket would rarely get more than a 45 minute wait and close a Friday night 8 months after it opens with only a 15 minute wait, we would all think you were crazy, or drunk, or both.
But that's exactly what happened, and continues to happen. That certainly can't have been the business plan they proposed in Burbank five years ago to spend a Billion dollars on this land. But hey, Bob Jr. obviously knows theme parks better than we do. We're Immersed!
While Millennium Falcon: Target Run closes tonight with a 15 minute posted wait, Star Wars: Rise Before Dawn had a rather unspectacular day. It opened two and a half hours late at 10:30am, and then had a few long break downs throughout the day. The thrill-data graph seems to have some glitches in it where it drops out entirely, but they ended the night by closing at 7:30pm at Boarding Group #120.
Because, you know, the park was open for another four and a half hours tonight so why not close the ride at 7:30pm?
With the glitchy graph info it's hard to tell exactly how many hours of break downs they had today. But just the 10:30am opening, the 7:30pm closing, plus at least three hours of breakdowns (likely more) equals at least 9 hours of closure. It could be more, but let's just pretend. Disneyland is open 8am to Midnight today.
Friday 3/6: Open 10:30am, Close 7:30pm at Boarding Group #120, 9 Hours Closed, 7 Hours Open
