    Hello All,

    I apologize if this question has been asked already but why is Disney creating identical experiences in Disneyland and Disneyworld?

    I don't understand why they made the same land on both coasts instead of making them unique.

    Does anyone know the rationale?

    Thank you!

    This seems pretty obvious, no?

    Even if it didn't save them money they do have people who only go to one coast and never venture to the other.
    SWGE is far from the only thing they put in both parks

    I’m glad they’re doing both. I don’t like to fly so would never get to CA. Can’t wait for GE to open in WDW.

    Yep.

    Most people who go to Disneyland will never go to WDW and vice versa

    Plus, it potentially spreads out the Star Wars crowd to two parks rather than crowding them all into just one park. It's going to be insane regardless, but can you imagine if they only put the land in one??!! :faint: :crowded:

    I get what you're saying. I do feel there was a missed opportunity here. Considering that both rides take place in space, you could have had each Galaxy's Edge themed after a different planet with different dining/shopping experiences while keeping the same rides intact. Would have made for a cool way to immerse the SW universe in the parks.

    I think if it was in two parks that woudl be different, however it is in two different resorts altogether. Many families have one home resort: DLR or WDW and never go to both. In theory it would be lovely, but in practice, not so much, I think.

    also there are other Disney parks around the world, not just in America. By creating almost identical Star Wars Galaxys Edge in the America parks, gives Disney the potential in the future to put it into the other parks around the world. Disney is now a global park experience and there are millions of people who will never go to America but are annual pass holders, regular visitors and one time visitors to the other Disney parks in Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo.
