Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run (DHS)

Sigh. It was bound to happen eventually. I hate what Disney has done with FP+. It has increased wait times across the board to ridiculous levels. They give out far too many times per hour. It’s to the point that if you don’t have a FP the lines are torture.

At this point I wouldn’t even be mad if Disney moved FP to pay only if that meant it reduced the number of times given out.

Got on this at about 7:15am this morning.

Excellent queue, followed by a fun -- but very lightweight -- ride. I was lucky enough to be a pilot, and I had a very good time being in the THE seat on the Falcon, but I could imagine that if you’re not a pilot, this could essentially be a lesser version of Star Tours (enjoyed the RISE OF SKYWALKER iteration of that ride that they’re currently running, by the way). All the trappings around the ride experience are A+, though. I'd consider it a quality D-ticket.

Wanted to single-rider a couple more rides to see the other crew positions, but was vetoed by the rest of my group, who didn't want to wait for me or ride it alone themselves!

I saw this yesterday. Is the only difference in the ride the fact that you hear Chewie? I have only ridden it once so I can’t tell if it is a different video as well.

Some guests wondered how not distributing the cards yet you still have to press all the buttons and levers would help protect guests... but it wasn’t done to protect guests so much as it was done to protect Cast Members from catching something, which in turn protects guests.

Health concerns or not, I kind of think this is what the procedure should have been anyway. The cards don't accomplish anything significant that organized CMs can't, and I would think this streamlines the process.
