The ride was probably the least of Disney's worries since it appears to be very high capacity. Savi's workshop & Oga's Cantina will likely have MUCH higher wait times than the ride. Reports are you will not be allowed to line up for the Cantina in the last hour of your reservation, so that's pretty telling...

Within the land, the detail is incredible and the sight lines are designed to tune out Disneyland. The audio is even louder by the train to hide the noise from the train passing. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, so I can't truly appreciate every detail since things in the land span the entire Star Wars universe (seen the movies. Not Clone Wars cartoon or any of the comics/novels), but I know it all looked incredible and Star Wars fans will be in heaven.

For those who have now been in the place... do you think the four hours allotment for this first opening period, will be enough (for now) for those to get (at least) one Falcon ride in, and/or then eating and buying and "sight seeing" everywhere?

Just curious, thanks. :smile:

incredible immersion by Disney (the attention to detail is pretty mind blowing), and some fantastic pics and video Robb and Team TPR.

looks like y'all had a great time, and even tho I'm not a big Star Wars fan, I look forwards to visiting this in upcoming years.

Awesome coverage, as always, Robb! I really enjoy seeing these reports, and can't wait to check it out for myself!

This is a difficult questions to answer, because we do not know how many people Disney plans on letting in for every reservation period and day. It could be increasing as we get closer to the actual opening. That being said, when I went on June 1st, there was plenty of time for all of that. We did food, shopping (in the market), pictures, cantina, Falcon (Single Rider). With maybe 15-20 minutes to spare. The issues that people will run into are the things with the lines: Ogas Cantina, Savi's Workshop, Dok-Ondar's, and Droid Depot. You're likely only going to have to choose 1 or 2 because they will cut off lines at some point.

Again, this is only for the reservation period, after that you're welcome to stand in all the lines you want!

There’s no way you’ll get a chance to see everything in the 4 hour window. However, you can definitely eat, ride (multiple times), and do at least one of the droid/lightsaber/cantina.

I don't know if it's credible, but one twitter account was claiming that after that opening weekend, they are now taking text reservations for the Cantina. If true, it'd be like a restaurant: you check in, given them your number, and when they're ready to seat you, you get a text. That way you're free to enjoy other shopping and whatnot instead of wasting your time in that line.

If it's not true, it ought to be. :) If others visit in the near future, confirmation would be welcome. I'd also appreciate confirmation if they're allowing multiple rides on SR, or instead marking your wristband and only allowing one ride.

^ Except in the Cantina, there's hardly any seating at all in there. From what I've seen in video tours of it. Mostly stand up. So texting a reservation to stand in a bar? Well ok, if that's what you want to do. And when Resistance finally opens, that should (maybe?) change the queuing times for other stuff like Cantina. Then again, Peter Pan is still pop-u-lar, with big queues, after all these years.
