  1. Arrghh! We picked Sept. for low crowdsand to avoid this opening! It was supposed to be late 2019! What happened?!

  2. We are going the week of Sept. 16th. I’m a bit worried this will raise crowd levels. Going in September because my husband hates crowds.

  3. Exciting, but I was hoping for low crowds when my daughter and I visit Labor Day Week. I figured we could deal with the heat if the crowds were low. We are planing a March 2020 visit, so I thought we’d see it then.

  4. We going the 22nd – 31st…..what do you think this will do to the crowd levels for the week? I don’t plan on going to HS our last three days so it doesn’t mess up our schedule but wondering what the other parks are going to be like.

  5. I don’t know if I should be excited or angry about our upcoming October trip. While seeing Galaxy edge in October trip vs our trip next year is exciting, Im a bit nervous about the crowds now overall for all parks.

    1. I’m also going in Oct. and am not sure what to expect. I want to see it and kind of hope both rides are open by then. Curious if it will be included in the after hours special ticket – I was planning to do that for HS anyway since it’s usually a 1/2 day park for us and we love Slinky Dog.

      1. If they put that in the after hours pass it will not be worth getting. They will oversell it and everyone will buy it.

  6. Uh-oh, we are going September 17th and I was hoping to miss that huge Star Wars crowd. Do you think it will still be crazy September 17th?

What do you think?
