Thread: Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Opening thoughts and ideas

  1. #76

    My husband said that it was either missing or a lot harder to see on a computer but not on a tablet/cell phone. That was my experience. I'm a pretty smart/observant person and while I will agree that I was rushing, I knew that I wanted to add my daughter so I was looking where to put that information and when I registered the first time - I did NOT see it. I assumed it would be on a final registration page and instead was told that my registration was successful but just for me. I logged in a second time with my husband's account on a cell phone and the hyperlink was very visible.

    The Disney person I spoke with insisted that this was user error - but if I was not the only person who made the error than the web page was designed poorly. I don't know if it was a glitch or an error.

    I didn't complete the registration for my husband's account but based on what I saw if I registered the first time with my cell phone, I doubt I would have had any problems.

    I had no issues with it on my laptop. I found the spot to fill in my husband and kids. I know it might be something one could miss though but considering websites can glitch and have things missing at times I can see that happening as well. So I guess it could be either way but in the end Disney also could have designed it a heck of a lot better too.

    Meh

    I see a Disneyland overloaded with rehab projects (park guests are paying 100% admission and not getting a 100% experience) 🤷🏼

    I see a Star Wars Land that will debut 2/3 ready, with no idea when the other 1/3 will be complete for park guests experience (yet people are willing to fight over a timed pass just to get in?) 🤷🏼

    Off topic - but important to me - 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of Disneyland Haunted Mansion .... nothing is being done (not like they did for the 30th, and 40th with deluxe merchandise and dining experiences - and you didn't have to join D23 to get access to it) ... what the deuce? 🤷🏼

    I guess I'm going to be the outsider going to Knott's Berry Farm, enjoying an enhanced Calico River Rapids (complete with an animatronic Big Foot that works, kinda makes me wish the Yeti at Expedition Everest could be brought back to life) 😊

    Sorry if I broke any rules with my comments, I guess I'm just shocked that nothing is being done to celebrate the Haunted Mansion's Anniversary (except outside Disneyland at a convention that's non Disney Co related) 🤷🏼

    I have heard there are things being planned, just not announced yet. Will have to see.

    I'm so glad this worked for you -- and that Disney is allowing this for those who got caught in the glitch. Looking forward to reading your review of your Galaxy's Edge visit!

    I think in the last few years they have not done extensive celebrations of any attraction like they did in the early 2000's. Even for Pirate's 50th in 2017 they made an announcement on the Parks Blog just 5 days before the anniversary (overall with food info) and 4 days before for merch. And for other attractions (indy 30th, Splash 40th, etc) just a pin announcement. Gone are the days when you'd get huge events and opportunities for special entertainment announced months in advance. The pattern now - it seems - is to limit the pre-release of information until closer to the event date. Of course SWGE doesnt fit that bill because there is huge demand for a land launch.

    I would expect to see something in the Disney Pins world announced at the end of july (there is a Merchandise link on the Events and Tours subsite of Disneyland.com) and then more of a general announcement the first week of August. Friday, Aug 9th, is the anniversary so it will be a good opportunity to kick off the weekend. One caveat - they could do something very small if they want all the focus to stay on SWGE.

    Has anyone found out a definitive answer about multiple reservations for one person during the reservation period? For instance a friend of mine booked a hotel under their name and added me as their guest (hotel asked for my AP) during opening weekend. But I also booked my own reservation under my name (my AP info with guests) for a couple weeks later.
    My fear is if I go opening weekend and my AP is scanned and I go back a couple weeks later they will go to scan my AP and I'll get flagged as having already been during the reservation period. I mean I would be fine if I wasn't allowed entry on my second visit but I would hate for my guests to miss out (which is why I haven't let them know for sure yet) My second reservation isn't until June 17 so I guess I will hear from people in similar situations on social media before then.

    From how it sounds so far there has been no mention of tickets/APs needing to be scanned. We know you have to bring along the confirmation to be scanned though and adults have to show an ID but that is all that has been said on it at this point. I can't imagine it will be an issue though for those under other's reservations but we shall all find out that first week how it ends up.

    I saw this a few minutes ago on the blog "After June 23, reservations are no longer required to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the Disneyland Resort will utilize a virtual queueing system, as needed, to continue to provide a great guest experience, so guests will be free to enjoy the rest of the resort while waiting to get called back to enter the land. Guests, once inside the park, will be able to request to join a boarding group to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge via the Disneyland app, or a non-technology option."

    Glad that they are setting it up in a way that doesn't have people waiting in the walkways. As well as can go about their day in the park and not waste it all day in a long standby that might not get them in the land. I wondering though if they will stop offering the virtual queue if they hit a certain number of guests wanting in for the day. I can imagine it will be hard to get every guests that wants in on each day considering they have pushed the interactive part of the land so much and I can see there being plenty that will want to try it all out.

    MP had an explanation of the virtual queue - guests will get a 2 hour window to come to their virtual queue space for the land. so if you are dining or in line for another ride you wont get pressured to get there. THat would indicate I think that the last window of a 2 hour queue would be either 2 or 4 hours before park close. Something like that.

    It’s per stay not per ticket/ap. From my confirmation email:

    There is one reserved space for each registered hotel guest. You receive only one Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge reservation for your entire stay. You do not have a reservation for every day of your stay.

    I wonder what the Galaxy's Edge themed Garbage Cans and Restroom will look like?

    Mary do you think you’re going to this ? I know it’s still early and all, but ...

    We report back to work the 8th and welcome students on the 9th. I’d love nothing more than to go to one night but I’m likely out.

    Please hit me up if you’re in. I’m interested in some merchandise and will give you money in advance if you can help out. Thanks
    Your attention, please. The Disneyland Limited now leaving for a grand circle tour of the Magic Kingdom. Aboaaard!

    We would really like to go, but are discussing/debating our Disney budget (as usual, right?). This will put a serious dent into what we were planning to spend on SWGE merchandise and Halloween Party tickets, so... Aaarrrgh! But if we do go, I will let you know!

    I know tickets are $300 but I am seriously debating going

    The event site was pulled off the web. as of Sunday. Now Im wondering if they will still make May 23rd the registration date or will it be later. Will they drop it in unannounced and say "here, go register". Hmmm. I would think for $300 you would get a lot of entertainment, food, and probably a cool parting gift (in case you don't want to buy any merch - whaaaaaat?!)

    Hey sorry I'm a little late to the game! I have reservations for SWGE for May 31st at 11 AM. I saw just now on Disney Parks Blog that they're going to allow people to line up for merch at 2 AM that morning.
    I thought I remembered them saying that they're not going to allow people to line up at the turnstiles though? I'm just trying to figure out what my best bet to actually just get into Disneyland that day will be. Thanks in advance!

    On all of the social media sites I follow people are asking the same questions and nothing official has been stated yet. I am scheduled for 11am on the 31st as well so I will chime in if I find anything out but if you are staying at a Disney hotel I believe they are going to give instructions when its time.

    Considering its opening day I would bet the earlier you get there the better to just get in the parks if that is your goal. I think there are those that will still go no matter if they have a reservation for the land hoping to get in...even though we all know Disney has stated there will be no stand by. I have seen some on another site try to say Disney is lying about that. I am not buying that. The set up being as it is with reservations and even after with the set up to come is making it clear they are not going to be doing stand by and doing their best to keep walkways from being jammed with one. Its actually one of the smarter moves they have done in years. Yet there will still be those hoping it isn't the case and now because of the merchandise that will be put in other areas you will have those trying their hands on whatever. Especially opening day merchandise. I will bet there will be plenty of re-sellers along with their friends/family they take along to get more of the items limited to buy per person.

    A crowded day at Disneyland beats a busy day of housework!!

    Will Disney be as vigilant with policing all those resellers who use APs to buy? Hmmmm

    Not likely. They have bigger fish to fry with everything that's going to happen for the rest of the year.

    I don't know. They were trying to make examples it seemed out of some they caught already so it could be that if it happens it will quietly be that more end up out the door like others. I can imagine they will be watching how much is bought by each AP that has a pass scanned for discount and buying AP only merchandise.

    I haven't been paying attention. They are putting purchasing limits on opening day merchandise? Interesting.
    Please don't ask me how I feel, I feel fine.
    Oh I cry a bit, I don't sleep too good, but I'm fine
