I just got back from my Disney trip and besides all the talk about Avatar in Animal Kingdom, it seemed like DHS (New name, Toy Story Land, Star Wars Galaxy's Edge) was the talk of the resort. With that said, I heard some interesting discussion about the name change and was wondering if anyone has heard anymore rumors regarding a new name since the survey ones sent out 2-3 months ago?

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

^Those surveys were the last I heard. Hopefully they are trying out some different options now.

Was just wondering with all the new touches they have been putting on Star Tours...has there been any indication as to what the plan for that ride is when Galaxy's Edge opens?

Can I park my donkey here?

Hang around for 2-ish years after the land opens then change the theme. But last week one of the insiders dropped that a last minute proposal to connect the exit of Star Tours to SWGE was being considered. Basically a really long exit ramp that would dump you into an area by the entrance to Alcatraz. But like they state, chances are very slim so don't expect it to happen. If you want to see the full resolution image, you'll need to have an account over there.

^ I read that too, about the "backstage exit tunnel" that took you to SWL through your own entrance way.
And then you would exit the land by way of the other placed entry/exit points.

I think it would be great if they did that! Would certainly make more sense about the whole
"separation thing" with Star Tours and SWL. They could even make a whole section be the "planet/border
control" along the way to SWL.

I'm not a Star Wars junkie, but really looking forward to this new land. I'm expecting the same amazing details and effort that was put into Pandora and to be totally immersed in this land.
