"I have a bad feeling about this..." Controversy ahead!

We’ve made it no secret at Theme Park Tourist how excited we are about the introduction of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The expansion is proving quickly to be one of the most anticipated ever but also one of the most controversial in some ways. Disney will be taking guests to new heights in that galaxy far, far away with a land so immersive, even the merchandise will be tailored to feel like it belongs in a bustling galactic marketplace. For Star Wars fans, it’s a dream come to life, and we can’t wait to see what Disney has in store.

While Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge looks extremely cool, it will bring with it some potential downsides that many of our readers have voiced. Not everyone is thrilled about this expansion for these reasons. While we are optimistic that the end result will be positive, here are the top six downsides guests are concerned will arrive with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
