School got in our way once the state travel advisory lifted. With scheduled zooms from 9-3 it just didn't work. We're banking lots of points lol

Still, there will be no shortage of interest considering the extremely limited number of accommodations.

I was really excited until we hit ROTR last week. If the whole thing is like the "acting", if you can call it that, in ROTR then this thing would be a hard pass for me at any financial level. I think I must be the only person who ROTR was a massive let down, so my expectations for this are greatly diminished.
Nope. Was a one and done for me. I wasnít impressed. While everyone else is waiting for ROTR, Iíll be in line for FOP!

ROTR is not in my top 10 at WDW. FOP is currently #1 in my book.

When I get off of FOP, my smile on my face and shear giddiness if off the charts.

Not having a window in the room to see outside would be the issue for me. Being able to see outside only on the "field trip" to the planet would not be pleasant. Considering all the people who reserve a specific location for the view or the balcony, I can't see many people enjoying a stay here unless they were big into play acting. Just don't accept a red shirt.

As well as the small size and needing to play a role the entire time. Not a cruiser and not into cos-play.

Yeah - it's more like the cruise language. A '3-day' cruise boards around lunchtime or after on day 1 and disembarks first thing in the morning on day 3. I'd expect this to have a very similar model.

Wow - I've been really excited for this ride. Will be interested to see how feels for us if we can get on!

Good one, even if it is the wrong show.

Somewhere I have a very embarrassing video of DH and I doing the Star Trek sketch at Universal from 1992.

Everyone is different, and I wouldnít deliberately discourage anyone from riding this with every expectation of enjoying it. Just not for me. Go forth and conquer!

Not on DCL -- cruises marketed as 3-day disembark on the morning of day 4. And I'd be willing to bet the same is true of other cruise lines.

Interesting, FOP is fine but I don't love it. The glasses fall on my face and with the back issues it's not comfortable. I don't find it as visually interesting as Navi to warrant many rides. My kid loves it though so we do it lol
