    So they actually are going to refuse to cut prices and just take the hit until the new ride opens? I hope the exec's get burned by that plan.

    I thought I would go over the old video's from the announcement and from 2017. It is a bit telling that the reaction of the crowd, when they announced the names of the (new trilogy) characters, the crowd was quite silent. There where cheers with Chewbacca and for whatever reason Rex but nothing on the other characters.
    It's also shocking how the look and feel changed from something very vertical and cozy to whatever the concrete and stale looking place it is now. I get that it's concept art but the feel is lost, the feel of all the aliens and robots. It's also telling when both rides are announced the last one (the one that should be the best I guess) is the Millennium Falcon. That is the thing that should people get excited but even the audience didn't go wild when it was clear it all depended on the group effort.

    I am probably over-analyzing but it looked as if the D23 uber fans where excited for the idea of Star Wars but was confused why it wasn't Star Wars what they where seeing.

    It's almost like they took their Star Wars playbook and copied it for Marvel.

    I find it fascinating that we have 2 examples of what happens when a ride starts to have issues.

    Hagrid has been getting flack for breaking down, but crowds are coming and the ride is still receiving great reviews despite the waits. On the other hand, Disney decided to hold off Rise, and now they have a very soft summer with cuts incoming to make up for it.

    Granted there are some differences (Like AP Blackouts, and Disney foreseeing the Rise issues way before, while the issues on Hagrid happened within a few weeks of opening) but it should give at least some perspective.

    The only thing I don't fully agree with in your post is that Disney decided to hold off on Rise... Hasn't it been pretty much confirmed that there were some issues, and they pulled people off Runaway Rail that allowed DHS to sneak ahead? Add in California's much stricter rules and Disneyland feel even further behind.

    Isn't that what happened?

    For whatever reason it is, Disney decided to hold off opening the ride along with the land.

    You know that pass you paid for? You can totally pay another fee to go. Now what are you waiting for?

    And the picture used is taken behind the “Partners” statue. It sounds kind of backwards.

    Man people who spent money for the top passes sure get pissed off at anyone else hoping they ease blackouts.

    Because it’s not ready? I mean, this ride sounds like it’s been through some crap. If it was ready, it would be open, especially with the problems they’re having.

    I would bet that if any of the die hard Disney fans who are making fun of the Hagrid problems would happily switch the current situation with Hagrid and Rise of the Resistance.

    I'd rather wait 4 hours than 6 months.

    I was hoping someone would see the irony in that

    It's almost as if they're doing it on purpose

    Also, what am I not seeing in simply just lifting all blackout dates?

    Yes, it wouldn't be the first time they lifted blackout dates early. They've done that in the past at both Anaheim & Orlando....Heck, even Universal has done that plenty in the past. And just now they did it with Volcano Bay.
