Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this episode by talking about one of Disney’s biggest concerns when it comes to “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.” Which is that people’s need to get selfies of themselves in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon will then significantly slow down the load / unload time for “Smugglers Run.” Len then talks some of his recent dining experiences around the WDW Resort


Over the course of this podcast, listeners will learn about:

What the Imagineers have planned for “Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run” in the event that none of the Guests in the cockpit touches a single knob, switch or dial

How P.T. Barnum’s old “This Way to the Egress” trick may influence Guest flow in & around “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge”

How Be Our Guest’s new prix fixe menu may have caused more problems that it solved for this popular Magic Kingdom eatry

Where – if you go by an industry standard game development timeline – “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” currently sits on its production / construction curve

How the Imagineers designed “Toy Story Land” both for the Guests who only want to ride rides (i.e., adding a third track to “Midway Mania”) as well as the total immersion fans (EX: Andy’s super-sized sneaker print in the pavement)
