So it sounds like the park is using a boarding pass system again. I know that no solution is perfect and people will complain regardless but this sounds like the best possible solution. Good for them for doing it.

After watching the video, my only response is "holy crap"! I'm really looking forward to riding this now. The way Disney has integrated hi-def video with physical effects, sets, and animatronics is outstanding,

Yep, it's 100% immersive. Rides like Spidey, Transformers, etc, all depended on the high-sided cars to force your view to a certain area. This is all around you literally the entire experience. There are no black walls with projectors in the ceiling or behind you. It's unbelievable.

I’m not much of a Star Wars fan, but this looks beyond awesome!! Like Chuck said “Holy Crap!”

It is really fair to call this a “ride”, or should it be labeled an “experience”?

Probably gonna head to Disneyland and check it out in late February/early March, before “Spring Breaks” starts to check it out.

I'm curious how the Single Rider queue works for this attraction. Actually, is there Single Rider for this,
and does it bypass some of the stuff you'd see in the Standby Queue?

In DL: Is the left opening an exit? And is the entry on the right just for Standby?
I forget what's been posted about this entry gate to the attraction.

In one of the vids I've seen it looks like there's a separate line once you're inside the star destroyer, before being broken up to the groups for the main ride. Perhaps there's the standby, singles, and fastpass lines out front, they all merge for the hologram room and transport, then fastpass gets a secondary bypass on the star destroyer while singles remain with standby.

Then again, how about I shut up and let someone who's been there provide accurate information.

Yesterday there were only two lines I saw, Standby and Fastpass. I did not see a Single Rider line. I am working on a trip report now and will look more carefully.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Oh Nooo's. Panic ! Oh Noo's Tonight, while watching the local news here in Fla, the headlines were that "Riders had to be evacuated from new ride failure at Disney" OFFS, it was a stupid video where the riders were walked off their car and down some steps to exit. The ride was back up after the reset.

What I like most about this is that you don't have to know Star Wars to appreciate it. The story tells itself well with all the tech and immersion, which is what I think the land sorely needed as a whole (I would guest most people know Star Wars from the recognizable items like Millennium Falcon, Chewy, lightsabers, R2D2, and Stormtroopers and don't fully appreciate the details the land has from the newer movies) to feel complete.
