And George thought the ESB cockpit was too big

The Falcon was only a light freighter, this one is clearly a Corellian workhorse.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Am I the only one who wants a Radioland Murders themed restaurant in Hollywood Studios?

A1000 Advanced Robotics | Walt Disney Imagineering’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qteMlMAaNM

'A1000 advanced robotics are the next evolution of the A100 Audio-Animatronic figures that were first introduced by Walt Disney Imagineering in the mid-1980s. This standardized system for building humanoid robotic figures incorporates new electric functionality, replacing former hydraulic functions, producing extremely realistic, lifelike movement. Future figures in humanoid form can all use this system to ensure the same degree of realism and advanced levels of movement.

The advanced figures that were developed for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge - like this animated figure of Hondo Ohnaka, as seen in the Star Wars animated television series - are a hybrid of A1000 technology enhanced with custom-built elements.’

I’m trying to have a sour grapes attitude about this, since there’s no way in hell I’ll ever be in a financial place to afford a visit. 😉

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

I need it to become so large, it’s like Westworld on HBO, and then I will live there like the man in black.

I knew he was going to host the Millenium Falcon ride but to actually see him in the flesh!

My boy Hondo!

To see any of the TCW/Rebels characters come alive really makes me happy.

Same here man - plus, even if I had the money for such as thing I’d likely wait a couple of years - hopefully for the likely frantic initial interest and lengthy queues to die down a little… 💰

When this Hondo starts asking if you’ve seen John Connor you may have a different attitude 😉

This looks like it’s going to be so much fun. We just took our kids to Disney World for their first time. We only did two parks: Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. It was such a blast. We did the Star Wars ride twice, the Indiana Jones stunt spectacular (the kids LOVED that show!) and we signed up for a special Star Wars “Galactic Dessert Party”. The party included some pretty creative Star Wars themed desserts as well as kid friendly and adult beverages from the GFFA, plus you got to meet Chewbacca, BB-8, and Kylo Ren. It was also patrolled by First Order Stormtroopers who then escorted you to special reserved seats for the Star Wars themed fireworks show.

It pales in comparison to what’s coming with the whole new land, but it was so much fun! And the Stormtroopers would talk to you! I don’t know how they did it exactly, because we realized they were using pre-recorded lines (that sound just like the movies) but they must’ve had tons of lines to choose from because they always had an appropriate response no matter what you said to them. My wife almost got us “arrested” when she asked one “aren’t you a little short for a Stormtrooper?” His reply: “You think you’re so clever, don’t you”. And they told my kids (wearing Stormtrooper t shirts), “your loyalty is appreciated, citizen”. It was a blast.

As for the long lines, they aren’t a problem if you have a wife who is an absolute ninja master at the fast passes. I don’t know how she did it, but she learned all the tricks and we rode everything we wanted (sometimes more than once!) and never stood in line more than about 30 mins. And the vast majority of the time we were in line less than 10 mins per ride. Even in the newly opened, crazy popular and crowded toy story land. She gets major props for whatever magic she was working!

I don’t know when we’ll be back but we are DEFINITELY going back sometime for the new Star Wars land.

I suggest handing out optional VR glasses you can wear while roving around the park. Through them you will see CGI robots or dinosaurs or what have you obscure your field of view from time to time.

I got to visit the park on Monday. It was AMAZING! Unfortunately I don’t have time right now to write a big post about it but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask and I’ll try to answer them when I get a chance.

What does blue milk taste like?

Well there’s two different versions, there’s a slush variety and a traditional liquid. Unfortunately the line was so long to get into the cantina I missed out on the latter. =(

But the slush version, I’d say tasted like liquid skittles. It was delicious.

I’ll bet the lines at Star Tours are quite short tonight. 😉
