Mobile Galaxy's edge already in trouble.

Apparently even though you need to queue up at 4am to get on its marquee attraction Ge is a business flop and may be rebranded as soon as the spring. Apparently its the black spire aspect which will go to allow more familiar characters to be used removing the timeline specific items. More if a Starwars land I assume.

Just because certain die hard fans don't like it as it isn't set in the original trilogy era or locations doesn't make it a flop. Less and less people are that die hard about it. The same was said about Pandora and New Fantasyland at one point.

I can't see how a product that is getting people up at 4am to experience it can be characterised as a "business flop". Maybe it's more to do with the backstory and narrative needs development?

well I'm confused

so many people want in that they had to come up with boarding groups, and those run out so early in the day ...

how can anyone call that a "flop" ... ?

a "flop" is fast&furious at universal ...

so have you ACTUALLY been to Galaxys Edge and experienced Batuu yourself or are you going by whats on the interwebs?

I have been to Batuu, and you are wrong on all accounts

Right now its opening day for Rise of The Resistance in Disneyland California. Its 12.30am, the park wont open until 8am and there are already 100 people queuing for boarding groups.
