May the Force be with Mickey if this ride has the uptime of Rocket Rods and the animation sophistication of the Yeti on Expedition Everest.

Yea. The ride could be good. Or another over blown meh great movie ride like attraction. I would be very concerned that with under two weeks left no employee testing has occurred.

These were the hours through at least October …. with Star Wars Galaxy Edge opening at 6am via Xtra Magic Hours. Isn’t Disney just reverting back to the old schedule?
