Disney & SW super fans in this family but also I think it’s a reality check.I am shocked at how many people are either planning on avoiding Disney or not changing their plans for GE. I expected a substantial number of people here to be chomping at the bit to go as soon after opening as they could. Apparently not. Where are you, SW and Disney superfans!!! ???!!
Look at Pandora and I’ve never heard of an Avatar fan. I imagine that Grand Street area full of hours long queues to even get in land, wall to wall people, impossible ADRS or getting in Cantina, ride lines unbearable since most wont score FP+ even at 60 days and the inevitable guest ugliness, probably worse than ever.
Every time they share cool photos or renderings I then imagine not being able to see most for crowds wedged in. To me .... I would think the more SW fan you are (DS2 is) the more you want to avoid your first time as insanely packed and not being able to appreciate. Waiting at least might help Disney get their operations and crowd management fine tuned.
Disney is building this land, almost direct easy fast access to/from highway, new buses and gondola to be ready for influx. But they have done minimal to get that park ready to handle the crowds. TSL is packed and that will get worse for awhile as I’m betting that SW tunnel will be exit only. MM railway isn’t enough to bring balance. RnR and ToT lines will get worse. Most QS in there are overwhelmed. Park simply is too small to have balance.
Hope I’m wrong, but for now we’ll try to wait and hope for AP or upcharge events. Note: We did Pandora AP event then avoided Pandora for next few trips.
