Will the Star Wars Hotel be open when GE opens? Or will that be a later date?
Grand Ave entrance is the "Big Reveal". I'm not convinced it will work as they think, but it makes the most sense from an ops standpoint as Grand Ave can handle the queue situation that will be needed.
TSL will be exit only upon opening and likely for quite awhile afterwards.
yeah, that's probably a good thing. TSL will draw it's own crowds, and having the SWL line interfere with the TSL lines will be chaos.
It will be interesting to see what ride will prove to be more popular. The Falcon or Battle Escape.
Also, I wonder how Fast Pass tiers will work with so many new rides in the park at once. This is my one hope that will keep standby lines somewhat manageable.
Falcon might be more popular initially just due to it being the freaking Falcon, but I’m fairly confident Battle Escape will be the better/more popular ride in the long term.
I get from an operations stand point that makes sense, but all of the mockups we see have come from the viewpoint above TSL.
It definitely seems like DL lucked out with having the better "reveal" entrance. I'm still excited to check out DHS's version though, just to see what the small differences will be.
Just curious...Anyone hear any budget cost estimates for;
* DHS GESWL
* Disneyland GESWL
Kind of somewhat different builds, state/local construction codes, wage costs, etc. . Probably close to one another but I wouldn't expect them to be exact duplicates.
According to an interview with Iger back in 2016, he says each land will cost $1 Billion.
Wow, that’s a lot of money. Entire theme parks have been built for that much.
Obviously, this will be the most expensive theme park land ever. What’s number 2?
Probably Pandora....Numbers bandied about were in the range of $800 million to 1 Billion...
How much was Tokyo Sea built for?
Rock Work is expensive!!
335 billion yen.
That's just over 3 billion dollars
That number was for the entire resort upgrade including The Mira Costa and Ikspiari (shopping village).
In an interesting light, expect some new information coming out of the planet of Batuu in the upcoming book: "Thrawn: Alliances", the sequel to last year's Star Wars Rebels book, "Thrawn".
