Star Wars Weekends were always amazing, I miss them!!! Marie

That's a bummer to hear this doesn't live up to SWW. I'm an enormous Star Wars fan but haven't gone to Galactic Nights yet because of the price tag. I'd rather spend that special ticketed event money on MVMCP or NSSH for my son. RIP Star Wars Weekends. Those were some of my favorite memories at WDW. I'm so glad I went for the final year.

Had fun but this thing was a bit of a mess. First of all, Star Wars Weekends was much better and I said that in the survey. The food was great, especially the porg drumstick. Chewy missed out. I couldn't get the viewing package online before the event but it was available during the event. The cashiers could only ring up one voucher food item at a time. The first cashier I encountered thought you could only get one item period then have to go back in line. After I asked a manager-looking type about this the cashier mysteriously disappeared. The lines for food were backed up most of the night. Highlights for me were Troopers in Star Tours, the fan made droids, walk-on TSMM, and the Galaxy's Edge presentation. RnRC was a disappointment. And as always, the CMs were outstanding. Well, except for the one confused cashier.

My wife and I were at Hollywood studios yesterday before the galactic nights started and we came across Warwick Davis and he agreed to do a selfie with us. One of the best things to happen to us

Last night.

The current show from the past couple weeks or last night?

marni1971May 28, 2018

The current show is the new format. IMHO for the better. It has comets from the remote launch location. Everything else is rooftop launched.

spectromagic04May 28, 2018

Last night for Galactic Nights they had absolutely no high pyro in the show. Did they officially cut the high pyro again in the show?

OTOH, the forecast was revised to 90% chance of rain. Well, I'm going anyway with poncho in tow.
