My wife, who gets intense motion sickness on Star Tours, would not appreciate such a requirement lol
Haha! My partner, who is epileptic and nearly had a seizure after riding ST her first time, wouldn’t either.

As a Star Wars fan - a Star Wars park sounds incredible.

But from the POV of an average theme park goer, Star Tours feels like overkill in DHS (not DL). Only because there’s 3 attractions in a park with a severely limited amount of rides, and it’s a simulator just like Smugglers. It feels like DHS is now “Star Wars and Toy Story the park”.

Totally get it about capacity and investments now though. But pre-Covid, I was hoping they would change ST sooner than later, even if they made it a Big Hero 6 or Incredibles simulator.

I wish it felt more like a Star Wars and Toy Story park

To me it feels like a "we didn't know what to do with this space so we filled it with Star Wars until Galaxy's Edge opened and now we still don't know what to do with it" park

And you try fitting all THAT on a guide map...impossible

Agreed on keeping ST in the near term. Their next order of business, once things begin to resemble normalcy, should be to close up the animation courtyard (remove SW shop and VOLM) and redo that entire area to add more PIXAR properties and connect it to the end of Sunset.

The refresh was good and bad in that it improved scores and rerideability, but now it’s a solid ride tied to a top-drawer IP. Those are hard to replace. It‘s also pretty cheap to throw a new scene in there, which is way more flexible than most rides.

It was definitely on the block to be replaced, but that IP went elsewhere.

connect it to the end of Sunset.
This would only happen as part of a massive redevelopment and not just refreshing Animation Courtyard - there’s a cafeteria that part of the Brown Derby/Disney Junior building that isn’t going anywhere unless you kick all the office people out.

Change “didn’t know what to do” to “the ancillary stuff lost funding” and you’ve hit the nail on the head. It‘s much closer to a full day park now but it feels like it’s missing the last 10% because it is.
