My newest strategy with Disney is, don't put off until tomorrow the thing you want to do that is available today, because things can change on a dime and no one knows what the future holds. If it were me, I would only wait if I'm okay with potentially never getting to do it.
Wise words!

but seriously, I don't see any of the SW offerings going away before Galaxy's Edge opens up
Thanks! I think I’m going to cancel and keep my fingers crossed for July. I have done the party before so it wouldn’t be the end of the world if it’s not happening but I really hope it is!

I learned that lesson many years ago after our 1st trip to WDW. My daughters have never really forgiven me for promising to do do River Country “ next time”.

    We did this tonight and had an amazing time! The show may not compare to HEA but the spread sure makes up for it. Savory selections included Hummus, Prosciutto, Capicola, Fresh Mozzarealla, Pita and Sun Dried Tomato Feta. Desserts were a step above the normal Dessert Party options and the addition of Adult Beverages make this a superior Dessert Event compared to others we've done. The center stage viewing area with plenty of space to spread out is also a plus.

    In addition to the above we were selected as the Family of the Day and my daughter led out the Storm Troopers and the rest of the party to the viewing area. If that weren't enough there was a Blogging Event going on and we got to meet and enjoy some nice conversations with Ryno, Tim Tracker and Big Fat Panda. Quite a memorable evening!

    Ahh, good memories. I volunteered to do Audience Control a number of times and really enjoyed it.
    The Symphony in the Stars fireworks finale was the best I'd ever seen. They should bring it back for GE's opening day.
    Agree -- wish I could see this with my kids. My favorite fireworks show ever.

    I followed some of the coverage of the SW Tour from Panda yesterday and he mentioned that he learned a lot of things he didn't know....now I do take that with a grain of salt because 1. the tour was paid for by Disney and 2. he usually is very enthusiastic/positive during all these media type events.
    A friend of mine did the tour when it first came out, we met here during the SWW years and became actual friends in real life :) she's an avid SW fan and told me it wasn't worth it cause she didn't learn anything new, but now I'm seriously curious if they added extra info and I'm considering doing the tour....maybe

    I haven't followed this thread in a REALLY long time. Would you mind letting me know what the "souvenir" is/was? It used to be a stein, but I don't know if it has changed or not.

    I’m totally ok with this. Our trip is 8/14-8/21 and we are not SW people and happy to leave before the chaos starts!!!

    I totally agree about SitS fireworks. I've seen a lot of shows at both coasts over the years, and this one was amongst the best!
