Does it have a high ground.

I've lived in L.A. for fourteen years. In that time, I've been to Disneyland once and that was at the behest of a woman I was dating. Not that there's anything wrong with the place, it just doesn't appeal to me that much, I've been to Six Flags numerous times. Starting in 2019, I will be visiting the park, probably several times.

Now,  imagine that same picture, but put about 2500 tourists into it, walking around.  The complexion changes, doesn't it?

maybe the lines will be shorter in other areas of the park, though.

You'll have opportunities to work for the Resistance (yay) or to collaborate with the First Order (boo).

It almost sounds like they are describing an MMORPG zone with quests. I was already excited about this, but that makes me almost delirious. I hope a version of this goes in the east coast park.

EXACTLY what I was just thinking. No way in hell to ever get a good shot of the Millennium Falcon without seven hundred people in it.

/so much for my epic selfie...

I lived in Orlando for 8 years and the only time I went to Disney was when my GF at the time worked there and we could get in for free. Heck a couple of years back I was offered a free ticket and I turned it down because yeah Florida in the middle of July.  No thanks. I might have to make my way there again based on this.

/If you like coasters and rides Busch Gardens is where its at anyway.

article says it is.

For example, you'll be able to go on a "ride" where you pilot the Millennium Falcon - but if you do a bad job, a certain hairy co-pilot might have some angry words for you when you visit a nearby cantina.

"Hey, Chewie, even I get boarded sometimes.  Think I had a choice?  Now get me something fizzy before I consider replacing you with that sassy Cathar mechanic with the tight pants."

Depends on when you go. Their fast pass system does help to filter people around the parks. Mind you, July, you are doomed at any theme park, but Disney does handle crowds well in most places.

Tis not wise to upset a Wookie. They can rip your arms off and Disney's lawyers are good enough that you'd end up with the assault charge

The video reminded me of a kickstarter campaign.
 
2017-04-17 06:04:16 PM  
Aside from the obvious in missing friends and family this is the first time I've regretted moving away from Florida.
 
2017-04-17 06:21:13 PM  
Where do the crying kids, bro-dads who hate star wars, and moms trying to take photos on the largest iPad available come in?
 
2017-04-17 06:22:24 PM  
I'm three hours drive from the park, I'm definitively going to check this out.
 
2017-04-17 06:34:10 PM  
Why in the fark did they even mention kids..................................Star Wars fans are mid 30-40 men
 
2017-04-17 06:35:44 PM  
I have a 7 month old boy and a nearly 3 year old girl.  I have never been to Disneyanything but was looking forward to bringing them when they are old enough.  Hopefully by that time this area has calmed down....you know...so the kids will enjoy it when I drag them there several times regardless of their level of interest...for the children.

because a lot of those folks have kids who enjoyed Clone Wars and Rebels?  I know my niece and nephews love the animated stuff but dont care so much about the movies.

But will there be real PVP?  Or will it be a powerpoint slideshow like Ilum was pre 1.2?

\god I miss those days.

My 4-year-old girl loves Star Wars.  Kids like what their parents like.

It will be like Ultima Online in town. You can try to PVP, but the guards will jump your ass so fast.

It's Disney. It WILL take all your money. Half of it just to get in the park...
 
2017-04-17 08:39:38 PM

Then I'll do what I always do, and talk my way out of it.

They're at Disneyworld. The fat Mexican families of 8 are at Disneyland.

Honeybuns != Mouse Ears

That being said, I can't wait.

The one and only time I've ever been to Disney World, I went alone. Often, when I tell people this their initial reaction is "awww, that's kinda sad". Until I tell them how great it was not dragging someone behind me who was complaining the whole time that they were tired, or hungry, or had to pee. I literally ran from one ride to the next and because I bought a fast pass, I whizzed right by all the plebes waiting in those unholy lines. See ya suckers! I rode Space Mountain three times and the last time I ran all the way through the empty line maze up to the turnstiles and boarded with the attendant telling me, "You're the only one, it's all yours. Enjoy!" And I did. I did enjoy.

Might want to check your math on that

If there's Naboo-land with Ewoks singing "jub jub" songs then I'm done with you LucasArts. You hear me?

Ewoks live on the forest moon of Endor, not Naboo - you ignorant pile of Bantha poodoo.

Che womok jeerota! Deajstare eedada Tana. Danvay coatee-cha.

MiceChat's April Fool's joke was about Disney charging a separate ticket for JUST Star Wars Land, no access to the rest of the park, at full price.  Of course, all I can imagine is some Disney exec saying "Challenge accepted."

...and I'd probably pay it.
 
2017-04-18 01:49:46 AM  
Looking forward to trying death sticks.

I can't wait to meet Larry Skywalker.
 
2017-04-18 08:27:44 AM  
My son watched the video on the Star Wars YouTube page. He basically stated that 2019 family vacation has to be to Disney. My wife just said fine as long as I can stay by the pool. I think we will aim for late Sept/early Oct 2019. Unless King Cheeto has nuked us into oblivion by then.

If I see one goddamn ewok or gungan I'm burning that place to the ground.

I think the Ewok tree village would be awesome!  Might not work as a tourist hotspot though.
 
2017-04-18 04:36:56 PM  
Anyway, where do they plan to put this?  Moving something else out or just expanding?  Can we get rid of the "It's a small world..." thing that makes every adult want to bash their brain in?

I wouldn't get too excited, it's probably just going to be a choice of badges.
