Just made plans to go to Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood
Studios in September. Busy trip. In 4 days we'll do
the following - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party,
Universal's Halloween Horror Nights, Galaxy's Edge, and
Epcot Food & Wine Festival. We're also hoping they are
doing soft openings for the Skyliners at our resort
(Art of Animation). They're not scheduled to
officially open until Sept. 29th.

For MNSSHP we're going as Duke Kaboom, Officer Giggle
McDimples, Gabby Gabby, and one of the Bensons. For
Universal, my daughter was able to find 11's romper at
Target.

Really looking forward to those gondolas. Big fan of Pop Century, which shares AOA's station.

Craig, that is one hell of a Halloween plan and costume list. Big thumbs up on how you and the family celebrate. =)

I've got a date with a Florida Galaxy's Edge preview in one week. I predict that if anything knocks me on my ass or brings me to tears, it will be the chessboard room in the Falcon.

The current rumor is that Galaxy's Edge does not feature iconic original sequel characters like Luke or Darth Vader. The rumor explaining that rumor is that Disney is trying to avoid paying something like a creator royalty to George Lucas for characters introduced in the first six movies. 

For those going to Galaxy's Edge, let us know if original trilogy and prequel trilogies characters are represented there.

Galaxy’s Edge is “set” in the current trilogy. The whole point is to be an immersive land, not Star Wars’ Greatest Hits Park. That being said, there’s plenty of merchandise within the world that depict the characters from the previous films. What a stupid rumor that falls apart with the bare minimum of application of common sense.

It's strange to me that folks would want to shell out hundreds (thousands?) to be immersed in the desert world of The Force Awakens (can't remember the name) rather than Tatooine. But those folks are fans in a way that I can never hope to be.

Are you still talking about Galaxy's Edge? Because it's neither a desert environment nor a location on Jakku. It's been open for more than two months now and is well-covered on the web and on YouTube.

There's even this site called Google that can direct people to coverage of Galaxy's Edge that would easily debunk these "rumors" advanced by the usual toxic fan sites.

We were able to get reservations for Oga's Cantina at
WDW's Galaxy's Edge in September. All of our friends who
are cast members in Florida have loved GE. Their
pictures have been amazing.

So I Googled it up, and while nothing supports the rumors, things aren't looking good for GE:

“Wait times this summer for the new Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride were expected to be over 2 hours long all summer, but in reality, the lines have been averaging half that or less,” an employee, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, tells FOX Business. "As a result, the company has been forced to cut our hours. The need for us to work simply isn't there."

Disneyland is considered more of a "local" park than
Disney World. From June 1st through August 25th,
Disneyland blocked out the entire summer for people who
bought the Southern California Annual Pass. Non-locals
decided to wait a year to go to Galaxy's Edge because
they figured it would be extremely crowded with local
annual passholders.

Disney World is not blocking out Florida annual
passholders and is expected to be VERY crowded when it
opens later this month.

Disney also has the Disney College Program which means it
can pay college kids less and work them more than full-
time cast members.
