Very well done mate - and am quite envious after seeing the footage from the ride on your video 😃

Finally made it to Galaxy’s Edge yesterday. Was very fortunate to get the chance to ride Rise of the Resistance, which is probably the best theme park ride I’ve ever experienced (seriously). The Falcon ride is also a lot of fun though there are some things holding it back a bit. The land itself is absolutely fantastic and the attention to detail is very impressive. It might not be a location we’ve seen before, but it is very clearly in the SW universe. I had a busy day so I didn’t get to spend terribly too much time there, but I feel like you could easily just spend half a day hanging out there. I’d have loved to just spent some more time there just soaking in the atmosphere.

My biggest complaint is a common one, the lack of music is really unfortunate. I understand they want you to feel like you actually are inside the SW universe, where there’s no soundtrack, but that’s not really what people want. People want to be inside the movies, where there most certainly is a John Williams score. The music populates the rides however, so there is that, at least.

Didn’t get a chance to go into the cantina because I didn’t have a reservation (next time) and also didn’t make a saber (not next time or probably anytime until I have money to waste). I will say, unfortunately, reports of the land being a failure have been exaggerated. I can assure you it was very crowded.

There are rumors that they’ll be updating the Falcon ride possibly some time later this year with a new mission based around The Mandalorian.

I think adding additional missions to Smuggler’s Run ala Star Tours could definitely add some nice variety, and it makes sense to incorporate Mando stuff in there. Although, they seem quite married to this idea that everything in the park takes place in a specific timeframe so I’m not really sure how Mando content would factor in, besides simply using a location from the show or invoking the Guild.

I’m kinda interested to see how this plays out, how successful it will be. It looks freakin’ gorgeous, though likely to be way out of my price limit!
