    Rise of the Risistance is meant to be the ground breaking ride. I think Galaxy edge looks amazing, I have avoided videos of
    Smugglers runs, so get full experience riding first time in October.

    Yep looking forward to rise of the resistance, it sounds like a hybrid of a lot of interesting ride systems

    Smugglers Run sounds a bit *too* interactive from what Tim Trackers video suggested.

    I want to sit back and enjoy a ride, not play a video game with some strangers.

    Other than that, overall it looks like they've absolutely nailed it.

    Yeah SR is definitely not going to be the best 'ride' in the area eventually but just to stand in the Millennium Falcon will be enough for most people tbh. The queue and the location is almost as important as the ride system with that one. Whereas ROTR will definitely be more about the ride system etc.

    And I'm a huge Star Wars fan so It means more to me. I can't believe I'm going to have to wait another 3 years. :(

    I appreciate that they've tried something different. From what I've seen of SR it looks like a seamless experience. Very cool concept.

    Smugglers Run was always going to be a D Ticket that has only really gained an E Ticket status with ROTR not open yet.

    SR has plenty going for it too. The queue and being able to stand in the MF will always be a huge pull. Don't think ROTR will have such an amazing queue or setting but I'm sure the actual ride will be better.

    They are totally different experiences though. Something for everyone.

    I would have thought you could slap the Star Wars brand on a baby changing room, and it would aquire "E" level interest from the fanboys.

    Both attractions are clearly E-ticket attractions.

    Looks like Disneyland has been very quiet since Galaxy's Edge opened. The area looks stunning though, by far the best theme park area in the world in my opinion and I am not ever a Star Wars fan.

    Aren't they still being quite reservation focused on the area? That and the lack of Rise being open might be putting people off...

    I've just read the following post over on WDWMAGIC forums regarding Rise of the Resistance and when it might open:
    I've no idea how accurate all of that information is regarding testing timelines but with this being Disney 4 months of testing and training sounds about right.

    I've certainly given up all hope of riding it in September.

    In news that has sent shivers down the spines of all of those who are visiting Disneyland later this year, it has been announced the the Main Street Electrical Parade is returning to Disneyland between August 2nd and September 30th.

    I love a good old parade - such an 80’s thing. AT will be wheeling Henry and the gang out soon to reinstate theirs

    Just seen this on Twitter. Family brawl at Disneyland.

    Seems to take a while for cast members/security to break it up but I guess you don't usually expect this sort of behaviour at Disney.

    Absolute morons, lets hope they were booted out and banned for life. Should have their kids taken off them too.

    Could be worse. Had this happened pretty much anywhere else in the USA, it wouldn't have been broken up by bystanders and park security. They would all have been shot on sight for being black by the police.

    The opening dates for RotR at both parks has been announced:

    Hollywood Studios Florida - December 5th 2019.
    Disneyland California - January 17th 2020.

    I find it odd that Cali's opens after Florida's, despite the lands opening in the opposite time frames....

    I wonder if they've had to make an alteration to the ride that involved redoing part of it. This would explain how Florida's version could open first if less of that part of the project had been completed so they have less to alter.

    There were rumours that the Cali version has some sort of major construction issue that was found out quite late on, and the announced opening dates would back that up. I also reckon that Disney think that the capacity of an extra ride is going to be needed sooner at Hollywood Studios than it is at Disneyland.

    Disneyland is still much quieter than it expected to be at this time of year and it sounds like Disney have begun to implement budget cuts due to the poor performance. I'm just hoping it stays quiet in September after the passholder restrictions have been lifted!

    EDIT:

    Here is what MiceChat have said:

    "The Florida version of Rise of the Resistance has benefited from being a few months behind the Disneyland construction schedule and was able to avoid some of the issues of its counterpoint."

    "The reason for the delay is complicated and there are a number of factors impacting the attraction. But sources in the themed entertainment industry point much of the blame at Oceaneering Entertainment Systems, the vendor responsible for manufacturing, programming, and installing the trackless ride system."
