Just after announcing annual passholder previews for its version of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney World instituted a substantial price hike for passes for both Florida and non-Florida residents.
The new “Harry Potter”-themed coaster has drawn rave reviews, but has also seen waits as long as 10 hours along with numerous weather delays and on-ride malfunctions.
Those with Platinum and Platinum Plus passes and the Premier Passport will be able to sign up for “complimentary special preview opportunities planned before the land’s opening.”
Of all the descriptions Disney executives have used to hype Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, once I saw it for myself, all I could manage was silent, wide-eyed wonder.
Making matters worse for guests, ride operation was suspended several times due to rain and lightning in the area and by 5 p.m., the ride was listed as “at capacity.”
The only operating attraction inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is less than what you were promised and less than you wanted it to be.
