We tried the blue milk while we were there---interesting flavor and actually pretty good---heard the green one is not good. I actually thought about trying one of the alcoholic concoctions but we didn't.
Have you been and tried the new ride? I know it opened this month--or was supposed to---not even sure what it is based on.

You can also make ADRs for Olga's Cantina. No food, just drinks, but worth the experience.

Make your list of must haves there---we spent all day and into the night for Fantasmic there the first day, then back for half a day for the others and I stayed longer to make my light saber. Right now there are no fast passes for anything in Galaxy's Edge but you can make reservations for building a light saber or making droids---we did both---not cheap but when you are big Star Wars fans, so worth it. But I was the only one to make a light saber---if you are traveling by plane I would recommend not doing either of those things---robots take up a lot of room in a suitcase---it took one suitcase for the 3 we made---and not sure how you would get the lightsaber on a plane---it is heavy and very long.

Had a great trip---although it was too hot for November---really enjoyed the new Galaxy's Edge and all the Star Wars stuff. I made a light saber---it was a real experience. Crashed the Millenium Falcon multiple times---LOL---and later on the Storm Troopers walked by us and said that they didn't have to worry about the Falcon any more and those 2 crashed it----LOL If you see the new Star Wars movie, the first scene with the Falcon is very similar to how the ride starts out---pretty cool! Enjoyed the Lion King Show at Animal Kingdom.
We also went to Legoland before heading home---I would recommend that park to anyone with children and I enjoyed all the sculptures all around the park a lot.

That is so cool.
My husband knows a lady who has a son that just got the part of Darth Vader. We hope to see him there.

Funny story. My daughter is the cast member. So she calls me up some time in July to let me know there was a cast member preview and she was going to submit her name to go. So I innocently asked if she was allowed to bring a guest and she said she wasn't going to mention it, not thinking I'd come down for the day. She obviously does not know her father. I flew down on Monday night and we spent the day in SWGE with hardly any crowds. 10 minute wait for Smuggler's Run. It was well worth it. It will be interesting to see the crowd difference when we go on Sunday. We do plan to take advantage of early morning hours.

Less than a month until I go to Disney World. So excited to go to another planet---LOL Our Magic bands have arrived with the neatest suitcase tags to put on our cases. Reservations are made. Going to do the Dessert experience for Fantasmic Show! We plan on making light sabers and droids---don't know who is more excited about that---my 29 year old son or me at age 64----LOL

Last year, I went for the anniversary of my daughter's passing to do Pandora because she loved all things Avatar and never had a chance to see it at Animal Kingdom (it opened the month she was in hospice and passed away).

This year, I am waiting on permission from social services to bring my newly placed foster-to-adopt daughter to Disney for the first time.

Hope you get to go. I am looking forward to the changes since it's been 16 years since we last went.

I am hoping to go to Disney in May (though I'm not sure if it will work out). If not, I am looking at a January 2020 trip to do all the new things at DHS. I just missed the opening of Toy Story Land last year.

Thanks for advice. Maybe we will see about early November. We wouldn't do the wine festival stuff. Not drinkers!

I think crowds are going to be heavier than normal for that time of the year, what with Star Wars land opening and the Food & Wine Festival. We're going for a week mid-October before a cruise on the Fantasy, which was planned before the announced opening date. I may stay away from DHS with the exception of any fastpasses I can get for SDD, RnR and Star Tours.

We love AKL. Don't worry if you can't get a savannah view, since there are viewing stations all over the resort. Plan a mean at Sanaa or Boma. You can make a meal on the Sanaa bread service alone.

Hoping to take my whole family to Disney World in October or November to see the new Star Wars world. We are all big fans of Star WArs so we have been waiting for it to open. Anyone else planning on going because of Star Wars?
I am thinking of Staying at Animal Kingdom resort. I have a 10 year old granddaughter that loves animals. Have you stayed there?
