AP previews going on atm afaik
They ended on the 21st I believe.
I would think that AP alone would take quite the wind out of a grand opening... but perhaps there aren’t as many APs as there once was.
AP preview was only for the highest tier passholders I think
^^^^This. It was a limited group.
I imagine that AP make up a small portion of the tourists who flock to Orlando every day.
Pandora had AP and CM previews for several weeks. Then several days of nothing. No soft open. Then grand opening.
I imagine this to be like that.
Pandora definitely had at least one day of regular soft opening. I was there for it. Not to say I expect the same here, but it did happen.
EDIT: Looking at my Snapchat history, it was May 26th. The day before the grand opening.
Tomorrow is an opening ceremony, and apparently DHS will open at 4AM on Thursday for the big day.
Has anyone heard when they will allow people to start parking in the parking lot? Or when will they let people start lining up outside the park entrance?
Great timing for a hurricane...
I haven’t heard yet. If you show up at 6am I think you’ll be one of the first. Not that I think there will be that many people.
That's evil even for me
Shade towards Hagrid/fans comparing success based on wait times? He's listening to the conversation...
To Chapek: More like an eight month wait after rest of your land in Disneyland opened with just the one ride.
"When asked about the possibility of creatures and droids roaming the land, Chapek says Galaxy’s Edge will grow over time and add elements, but he also comments that it already has more characters than any other land because each Cast Member has their own backstory"
I don't want someone serving me food at Docking Bay 7 to have a 'backstory'
Yeah, to heck with the CM's who work hard to ensure we have amazing experiences. Keep your mouths shut and give me my blue milk.
I'll make it a point now to engage with these CM's who came up with fun backstories for themselves.
It's fine for the CMs to have backstories, but the weight of the land shouldn't be on their shoulders. "Project Delos" should have some planet specific baddies walking around. Weird-looking, original aliens, with blaster sidearms getting into fights with other Battuans on catwalks around the land like the Imagineers intended. This was supposed to be the old west style bastion of the worst crooks and scum in the Galaxy. From what I have seen so far, it doesn't feel like their own backstory for the land is landing.
Like I have said before, they'll likely unroll something new every couple years, like Mr. shorty-legs in Pandora, rather than all at once at opening. That way it seems like they're "plussing" the land over time, rather than the reality of them cutting entertainment before it opens.
The point is, Bob is spinning something to make it sound good when it's actually cheap and about cost saving, not guest experience.
