    disneyland is launching their star wars land - galaxy's edge - tomorrow by reservation only. the reservations ran out within less than an hour from the time you were allowed to make them, and my highly motivated son scored reservations for himself, his friends and my husband and i. reservations give us four hours at specific times. wrist band colors will allow cast members to remove anyone who outstays their appointed times.

    disneyland required names of every guest, and apparently we'll all have to show i.d. to show it's really the people on the reservations. they won't do package express for stuff you buy, and only one of the two rides will be active.

    still, it's been fun watching galaxy's edge grow - every time we go by on the train for over a year, we peek over the wall, and have been watching the buildings get taller and more star warsy, and last time we went last month, it looked finished. i wish that it had been an existing star wars city rather than an unknown one, but it still looks like fun. the cantina will have star wars themed drink bottles, and they're already selling for $25 on ebay :D and there will be cast members in star wars attire wandering in the crowds with guests.

    anyone else gonna be there for the launch tomorrow?

    i suspect a lot of our day will be standing in lines, but still, i expect to have a fun and interesting time. hopefully the group of us can do the millenium falcon, where you work together to fly it

    I'm not too keen on the polished, Disney compliant pile of crap that became of Star Wars.
    It's like a saturday morning version of an once epic story.
    Eurodisneyland is an hour drive from here yet I avoid it as much as possible.

    actually i feel disney pretty much ruined star wars - i went out of my way to NOT see the last jedi, and i never will see it after what i heard about it. i feel that ms kennedy doesn't get star wars at all, but unfortunately she's in charge.

    but the land in disneyland could still be fun, and they claim that for launch day they'll be running at quarter capacity, so it'll be our best chance to see it when it isn't packed.

    there are several disney movies that i didn't love or didn't see over the years that still made great rides. i've never seen the wind in the willows, but i enjoy mr toad's wild ride, and while i thought their animated alice in wonderland was okay, the alice ride is my favorite in the park. i guess what i'm saying is that i separate the movies from the rides in my head.

    Just before the 7th movie came out, there was a giant expo at the Movie Hall in Paris. It was fantastic. Somehow I'm afraid Galaxy's Edge might disappoint grown up fans. Let us know!

    Star Wars is dead to me.

    I mourn its passing.

    sadly i agree. like i said, i will never see "the last jedi", and i disliked "rebels" (the cartoon series) and ... er... what was the first movie rey appeared in? i can't even remember.

    but on friday, i'll still be in disneyland waiting in line.

    I lost interest the day they decided to separate the official cannon from the extended universe.
    It was what made Star Wars so rich and unique, with ideas going back and forth from official stories to independant authors.
    What's even worse, they did it so they could use write an original story for sequels to ROTJ instead of following the frame offered by the comic books, yet in the end all they offered was a watered down copy of it.
