    I guess my remaining question is whether or not they will plant on top of the tunnel itself. It will be interesting to see.

    Interesting question since the tunnel is concrete. I can't imagine they would plant on both sides and leave a giant hole in the middle though.

    If I had to guess there will be something there.

    It seems like they've taken a massive leap forward over the last month.

    Based on the design they chose for the Grand Avenue side facade, there will be no planting on the tunnel. It drops off immediately on both sides of the tunnel, making it next to impossible to put dirt on top without it falling off and into Grand Avenue.

    It will be planted up there. It's how they intend to hide the rock work from being seen from Grand Avenue. There's enough of a lip especially toward the exit of the tunnel into the land to fill it in with dirt and plants.

    Yeah, there is a 4’-5’ lip on the top of both ends of the tunnel. So, they will fill that area over and it becomes a question of depth and whether there is enough to accommodate large trees etc. Either side of the tunnel will be fine for the big deciduous creatures.

    The top of the tunnel is the same height as the top of the walls that lead away from the tunnel.

    Ha ha, so it is! The plot thickens...

    Perhaps They will just put a Ferris wheel or carousel up there.

    They can put those fake plastic plants from Pandora up there. Just call them outer space stuff. ;)

    It's important to note that they still aren't finished filling in the dirt on the sides of the tunnel.

    Sorry I’m late to the party, but this isn’t the Falcon ride.

    Assuming you're the real "Marni", you are most definitely not a rookie or late to any party.

    Marni has been posting here for quite a bit. His posts have lined up with the info he places on Magic. No doubt in my mind it's legitimate Marni (Martin). And he's a close social associate with some of our most prominent members on IU, one of who "liked" his above post.

    That was what I thought. However, I wondered if some schmuck had usurped his name to plant false rumors.

    Galaxy's Edge merch that was debuted at the Star Wars event a few weeks ago is now being sold in Tatooine Traders. There's also AP specific merch.

    I also believe I noticed this the other day, but some of the GE Merch is also now at Disneyland at their Launch Bay location, with a portion of the model there too.

    I'm probably gonna break and get the GE tumbler. I'm not keen on most of the merch but I love the look of the tumbler and it would go with my Mission: Breakout one well.

    This is a weird question but are the tumblers the same style across the board but with a different print for each ride?

    No. Different Styles.

    Actually my MB one isn't even a Tumbler, but they would pair together nicely.
