Is Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Already a Flop?

Disneyland annual passholders are largely blacked out for the summer

Disneyland has a vast array of annual pass choices for guests, but one thing that all the most popular passses have in common is extensive blackout dates, And while some of the most top-tier guests can currently get into Disneyland park, the vast majority of annual passholders are unable to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge until later this year. Now if things continue to move slowly, Disney could lift blockout dates for some annual passholders as they have done in the past, but there's no way to know how Disney would make such a decision just yet. 

There is one bright spot...

Though things have been really slow at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, particularly at Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run and specialty shops like the Droid Depot, there are two places that have still managed to draw huge crowds: Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop. Perhaps not coincidentally, these two experiences require a reservation, and have very limited capacity during the day. So even though guests can just walk right into this land, pick up some lunch and blue milk before going for a spin on the Millennium Falcon, if you want to have an alcoholic beverage or build your own lightsaber, you'll definitely want to familiarize yourself with Disney's new reservation policy for these experiences before you go. 

We still have several weeks to go before Disney's Hollywood Studios opens their version of this new land, but it is very interesting to see how crowd levels at Disneyland have been during the opening weeks of the West Coast Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. We don't know how much of an indicator this slowness might be for Disney's Hollywood Studios, but if guests really are getting tired of Star Wars and/or waiting for the second attraction in this land to be finished, we could be seeing a more low key opening for this upcoming land in Florida than we initially thought...
