    If we are staying onsite and have a scheduled FP at SWGE would we get in if they are at capacity?

    If we have a 6pm FP were aren't going to be there to get in at 8am.

    there are phases of closure, in this case you would be the last group to be locked out. We will have to wait and see how Disney is going to arrange crowd control and access to both the land and the park

    ....and Fast Passes! I'm sure it'll be like Pandora where you can only choose 1 Tier One attraction. Hopefully TSL rides will now fall to the next tier!

    they might do MFSR, SWRotR and SDD as Tier 1, leave the rest for Tier 2.

    I would think so. And with pandora, when the park was open but hey would have a line to get into the land if you had a FP you could skip the line if you were like within 20mins of your FP time

    Okay I tried to look up what they stand for... Looks like this needs to be updated. Nothing for SWGE on here...

    I can't believe there will only be 2 rides! Is there room for expansion? I know Pandora only has two rides, but the Avatar movie is nothing compared to Star Wars franchise.

    I get what you're saying, there will be interactive stuff going on all around though. I can say from a super SW fan point of view, I'm just as happy with just being immersed in the land. If they go as immersive as Diagon Alley (1 ride) and Hogsmead (2 rides) at Universal, I'll be super happy. I'm also a HP fan and can spend at least 2 or 3 hours in those lands between the rides, the stores, food and general atmosphere

    I agree with that as it is being positioned as trying to take some crowds away from GE and also something for people that aren’t SW fans

    Sorry, my personal abbreviation for Smuggler's Run is gonna be SmugR... I just can't help it, as Han Solo was one of my favorite characters as a kid and he's more than a little smug. ;)

    Though I suspect many will just call it “the Falcon ride”

    I remember that, but AK itself was never in a phased closing that I remember. So you could still get into the park to get to the FP line.

    Right now we are looking at being there Dec. 21-Jan. 3rd.

    The current plan is to be at DHS 4 days. We figured with FP tiering we would get to ride each SWGE ride twice. However I just realised we forgot about the Mickey ride. We would definitely jump on an after dark event, but it seems they don't have those during the holidays.

    I will definitely report back and without spoilers!

    I’m interested to see paid preview prices. I can really see them being $750 plus with Disney’s current greed and that’s me low balling!

    2 rides should be enough when you compare it to Hogsmeade. The key to Hogsmeade's success (to me) was the "immersiveness" of the main ride (the queue especially) and the other "interactive" experiences such as the wand "show" and simply the dining and shopping.

    So the key is how much Disney makes the "land" immersive. For me -- the rides at Pandora are pretty great, but the look of the land and the immersiveness of something like the robot walker "show" brings it to a whole different level.

    Hopefully SWGE takes the immersiveness of Pandora and Harry Potter to a whole different level.

    For me .. if it doesn't open while I still have an AP .. I probably will just either wait a year or desperately try to get in the Star Wars Hotel when it opens. If, what the rumors say are accurate, that that hotel stay will give you exclusive access to the land (which one would think means some sort of VIP access (or a time when regular guests aren't there (early morning or late at night)) .. I would be all over that as opposed to worrying about getting a FP.

    If there is a "early morning Magic" for Star Wars land -- I suspect it will be a hot commodity .. but probably WAY worth the price. Definitely a difference of paying for exclusive access to an "immersive" land as opposed to something just like Toy Story Land or Fantasyland. (where you are mainly just going for the rides).

    I could easily see it costing as much (or more) than a single day ticket.
    I see it being .. access to the land (without the "normal" guests) -- a breakfast at the restaurant -- unlimited rides on the two rides and some 3rd trilogy character meet and greets (in other words ones from Force Awakens/Last Jedi only). Simply the ability to "take it in" without being shoulder to shoulder or worrying about rushing to a FP or dining reservation would be worth it.
    (Though it doesn't seem like there is any space for meet and greets anywhere in the land unless they are going to do them like Toy Story Land and just have them in a little nook somewhere.

    But .. I would want to know how "limited" it truly is before signing up. But I doubt Disney would every say what the limit is. I don't want to pay as much as a park ticket and find out I still need to wait 30+ minutes for the rides.
