Millennium Falcon ride looks great.

Update: found a better video of the ride - Fox 11 LA Rides Smuggler's Run

Here's the GMA walkthru video from this morning: GMA GE WalkThru

Watched it last night, had a bunch of the original actors too, worth a quick watch if you have time.

Just saw a special on Good Morning America and WOW I am SO EXCITED!! I love that the millennium falcon ride has different experiences- every flight is different. Makes me want to ride 50 times! Can't wait to see it. Probably can't make it back until late 2020, but maybe lines will be reasonable by then.

Thank you for posting these clips. This just made me even more excited, and I didn't think that was possible.

Possibly. Pandora's down to 2.5 hours 2 years after opening.

I am indeed excited! I fear it's going to be one experience per trip until things settle down.

I am just waiting for them to finish . Everything I read now says you do the ride and then you stand in long lines to spend money.

I am opposed to standing on line to spend money (one reason I don't have a wand from Harry Potter land yet )

I hope to stand off to the side and watch other people spend money.

I did flirt with the idea of making my own droid, but I already have a banshee that just sits there and looks at me. Iím. Not sure I need a droid to stare at me from the other direction.

That said, people seem to be loving the light sabers, even if they donít purchase them.

Is anybody else planning to monitor news media ďhypeĒ for tomorrow grand opening? It is already entertaining as reports are already online . ...
Millions of dollars spent and Disney still needs to use masking tape to direct wristband pickup.
