No Roaming Droids in Galaxy’s Edge Says Disney

When Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge was announced, Disney promised tons of live entertainment including drone shows and most importantly roaming droids. When the land was closer to opening, Disney had said that they were going to postpone the drone show because of the highly anticipated crowds that did not show up.

People have speculated that when Rise of the Resistance opens and the land is complete then Disney will start rolling out the droids and other live entertainment. Apparently, that is not the case either as Disney has now confirmed that droids are not coming to the lands in Disneyland or Hollywood Studios in the near future.

Personally, I am disappointed in this decision because I believe some entertainment is all that is needed to make this a very good land. I am hoping they change their mind in the not so distant future, but what do you think about this move? Do you care if there are droids or not roaming around the land? Comment your thoughts below!

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at WDW Dethemes Their Food Names

Just two months after it opened, Disney has decided to simplify the food names at Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World. At Disneyland all food names are the original themed names for now.

The reason Disney did this is not known, but I have a theory. My theory is that since Disney World is very tourist heavy and lots of foreigners go there, my guess is that many people had no idea what they were looking at or ordering. If they are from another country then they may not be able to read the names of the food and depending on how good their English is, the cast members may not be able to communicate with the foreign guests very well. All of that mist likely led to numerous guest and even cast member complaints about the situation which then forced Disney to make a swift decision to simplify the food names so that it is easier on guests and cast members for communication purposes.

Disneyland is a mostly locals park and people who are not locals usually come from other parts pf the country such as Nevada Arizona, or Colorado. That is the reason why I believe Disneyland for now is staying the same since communication is easier and those guests are able to read what the actual food product is in the caption under the themed name.

Now as soon as this changed was announced many people automatically became upset because they were promised full immersion from entertainment to food. Disney already let us down big time in the entertainment department with the lack of droids or shows in the land, so people feel like Disney is further taking away the immersion by changing some of the food names.

If in fact my theory is correct than I don’t mind the changing of the food names at all if it means guests know what they are about to order and eat and that drastically reduces complaints. The only thing I am asking for is that Disney bring back the proposed entertainment that was cut such as the roaming droids and the shows. Hopefully with the opening of Rise of the Resistance we get some of that entertainment back.
