The only other rides that I've seen that empty are Nemo and The People Mover and those are also huge people eaters, so you might be on to something.
Not a big mystery.

Star Tours does have a high capacity. There are 6 simulators, each of which has a capacity of 40 people. The ride run time itself is around four and a half minutes. Allow perhaps a minute to reload, and my calculations have it at 2618/hour. When operating all six. They don't need to at all times, so they will cut down to what is reasonable to save on maintenance and staff. So in general, regardless of how busy the park is, it generally seems to have the same length of line.

I don't remember other capacities offhand, RNRC I think is around 1800.

I'm really not sure on TOT. Some napkin calculations come out way too low.

I've heard TSM is around 1000 or less.

ST could be one the biggest capacity ride attractions outside of the Omnimovers.

My family would love a Star Wars Land. We do like the stunt show, but after seeing it numerous times we don't mind giving it up for something as awesome as new land.

I'd say it isn't going away short term as the OP implied, but could still be gone within a year, as some other rumors say...

They recently added Fastpass+ lines to Festival of the Lion king and we know that is moving, so I wouldn't read to much into this.

I agree, I think it's probably a temporary measure to come up with something else for people to choose for fastpass+ selections. DHS isn't as attraction heavy as MK, so they'll need it. They can take that out as easily as they put it in once they got rolling on new construction.

Now that being said.. it may be temporary but it's still ridiculous

Did not read any of this thread except the op. HOWEVER I have to say the stunt car show was a huge yawn. I went once and that was it. I would love to see something more interactive or at least cute in its place.

DHS upgrade?

Think I would prefer Cars Land to Star Wars Land. But replacing the stunt show with almost anything would be an improvement in my book. Saw it once, that was enough. Still miss the movie lot area of backlot tour. Especially at Christmas.

Lest anybody think Team Disney Orlando will go full force on any new projects, this comes from Mice Chat rumors:

Quote:
The Board also got overviews of WDI’s plans to attempt a more modest makeover of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios park in Florida, with a scaled down Cars Land section and some of the same Star Wars concepts planned for Tomorrowland.
Booooo, WDW always gets screwed over on these things. They know they can halfass things and people will still come. They try to do that in DL and there will be a revolt.

Tomorrowland?!? Do they not remember that Star Wars took place a long time ago?!? Nor do I think it meets "retro-future" tests...
