    That conversation really makes me think of the leaky faucet scene in My Cousin Vinny

    An we have our first food/drink casualty for the land, the Bespin Fizz is no more.





    This bums me out since that was one of the better drinks, not to mention the presentation of it was one of the most fitting for the land.

    Most likely the carbon freeze will be gone too. My guess is the dry ice machines are too much maintenance. The first few months these things were offline from time to time.

    Finally tried the vegan Ronto wrap. Really good but expensive. But then again everything is expensive at Disneyland.

    Damn its so sad Disney can't afford maintenance on crazy expensive drinks in the most expensive land ever made in one of the most expensive parks in the world.

    After watching the Mandalorian, I have two suggestions to fix GE:

    Baby Yoda meet and greet. This will easily get longer lines than MF.

    Serve “ZOOKA!” at Docking Bay. Imagine being able to cut off the top of the egg to consume that good stuff.

    I think we use Spider-Man and Forbidden Journey as our benchmark since they feel like the most complete dark ride experiences in Central FL

    I would have to imagine that we will get a Baby Yoda M & G sooner rather than later.

    Totally agree, but only after Disney come up with suitably decent Baby Yoda merch and not the half assed stuff they have come out with so far.

    I thought the merchandise at GESWL, besides the robots & light sabers, was pretty much terrible. Some of the stuff I saw was just pure ugly. Nothing that I even considered purchasing. I thought that with Chapek being a 'retail guy' that Disney would shine in the GESWL merchandise aspect.

    Timeline it could work, Mandalorian is set 25 years before TFA and since baby Yoda is a baby at 50 years, another 25 years would make him Toddler Yoda?

    So basically Chapek isn't even good at the thing he is supposed to be good at at?
    Well that's a shocker... or not :shrug:

    In fairness I haven't been but there seems to be some nice stuff. I'd have thought they would have used focus group research for the land merch?

    See that could work and aren’t all M&G usually timeless and never “age” so to speak? Seeing that these are part of the new trilogy I could see it working. My guess would be something similar to the BB-8 M&G.

    I dunno I thought the Star Wars merch was pretty strong already, just a bit greedy on prices. I don't really understand the interaction though. I really have no clue about how good the interactive stuff is though. Wizzarding world with the wands seems like a much more focused product that way. Really obvious as to the value of buying a wand. Maybe Disney has a lot of flexibility and expansion of the interactivity in mind though for the future.
