Anyone ride lately? Still locked into Ep 9 locations?

And less Hondo yelling.

Then we finally get random multiple missions for Smugglers Run. While I enjoy the locations of Star Tours better than Smugglers Run, Smugglers Run feels more realistic and I enjoy the inter-activeness of the ride. Just give me other places to go.

They should update Smugglers Run with a better mission and have it light speed skip.

Define plan. Like the OT Conversion, it was a talked about, but never fully realized proposal that will likely never happen. Basically, Fastpasses and Stanby would both enter where they do now, but things would change as guests enter the building. There, Fastpass would keep left and go up what is currently only the wheelchair route. Then, roughly where the podium is now, standby would continue in one of two lines (former Fastpass or Current Standby). As I said before, very unlikely, but not impossible.

It's been one of the small variations.

Is the Gungan on the windshield new? First time I've seen that. Usually he's just run over.

MouseInfo reports that they spoke with imagineer Tom Fitzgerald who said that when the randomized voyages return there will be new footage of Rey on the side screen in the Jakuu scene: In addition to adding Lando Calrissian, Imagineers took the opportunity to add Rey into the fold, as well. Although the attraction is currently only showing the new RISE OF SKYWALKER scenes, it eventually return back to its normal randomized voyages where we’ll find the Jakuu sequence updated with new footage of Rey filmed specifically for the attraction. She will not feature on the main screen, though, we’ll see her presence through the side screen in the cabin.

Rode this in California's Star Tours and people were cheering when Lando showed up. I really loved this version. The Galaxy's Edge teaser version was nice, but this combo felt particularly fun and sweet.

Lol Fantasmic gets higher ratings than MFSR.

RobWDW1971Dec 22, 2019

"If"? For those of us that lived through the opening of Star Tours on both coasts and now this tepid "meh" reaction of MFSR, there doesn't seem to be a question.

And some other minor variants like whether a Wookie lands on your windshield or not in Kashyyyk, or what happens to some droids you plow into in final scenes.

FigmentJediDec 21, 2019

There's also "First Order Stormtroopers" as an intro option and a couple Naboo variants like running over Jar Jar or having the Naboo starfighter's tail crash through the windshield.
