    So when Galaxy's Edge opens up, which ride are you guys running to first?

    I'll answer this question seriously: Alcatraz/Battle Escape, no question. I'm expecting it to be a Top 3 ride in all of Orlando if the things we've been hearing about it are accurate (numerous AAs, gigantic sets, and basically every trick in Disney's book, both physical and digital). Consequently, this is the ride that will devastate me the most if it underwhelms.

    I'm not overly jazzed for the Falcon aside from the novelty of being in the cockpit; I expect it to basically just be another Star Tours-y simulator. I'm sure it will be fun, certainly, but kind of old news. I don't believe the interactivity will really prove to have much of an impact. This ride, though, is the one that stands the greatest chance of pleasantly surprising me since I'm not expecting it to be anything terribly special.

    I concur on both of your assessments. Battle Escape should be something really special.

    Agreed with all points. It's hard to maintain my expectations. But I'm really hoping for Disney to extend the ceiling on this one.

    If Battle Escape disappoints I think it will bring the entire park down. They better be pulling out ALL the stops. There is no reason a brand new Disney ride can't compete as one of the best rides in the world. They have the ability to make it happen.

    That it's being overseen by the man who oversaw the current greatest ride on the planet (Spider-Man) gives me a lot of confidence that they're going to pull it off.

    I didn't know that. That's exciting info. It's crazy that Spiderman really is still the benchmark

    How long do ya'll think the lines will get? FOP is still at 180 minutes most mornings and it's been over a year.

    Battle Escape should have significantly better capacity than FOP does.

    Interesting that Iger states that DHS attendance has lagged over the last number of years. That should be news to TEA which steadily declares attendance increases for DHS.....Well, once GESWL opens, DHS will 'truly' have attendance increases and no longer need TEA's 'fake news' increase estimates. :lol:....Iger knows what the 'real' attendance is. :)

    That's kind of fascinating. Iger didn't realize the numbers were being fudged to look better than the reality, and just assumed we all know the truth! Which we, basically, do.

    I don’t think he assumed anything, he was just trying to pimp Galaxy’s Edge and if that meant demeaning the park in the process, then so be it.
