New Croud Control Designs For Disneyland’s “Project Stardust”
Makingstarwars.net’s, John Bishop, reports “New Details Designed to Mitigate Crowds in Run-up to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.” With the summer of 2019 close at hand, Disney park managers are preparing for LARGE crowds to gather around the new addition of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This new section of the park promises a realistic experience to make you feel as if you actually traveled to a galaxy far, far away.
Now with all this detail comes a problem, where are they going to fit it all and how to make it to where no one feels claustrophobic due to enlarged crowds. According to, John Bishop, “Disney knows that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will change how its theme parks work.” The article moves on to state that they are taking a hard look at the operations of the park, infrastructure, traffic flow, and access.
Fans planning to visit the addition can now sit back and take a breath. Disney is hard at work to make damn sure everyone gets the ultimate Star Wars experience they are paying for. Further on in the article, Bishop, relayed a twitter status from reporter, Robert Niles. The status said, “With more than 18 million people visiting the park each year, according to an industry estimate, Disneyland must consider ever square foot of space in the park as a precious asset…. How do you accommodate many thousands of people in a limited space, while preserving that space as a place that millions of people would want to inhabit?”
Their answer, “Make changes that help, instead of hurt.” An obvious statement, lets just hope Disney creates a really great Star Wars experience. No one wants to go and have it ruined due to an abundance of attendees. I’m sure Disney can handle it. We’ll find out this summer!
May the force be with Disney as they open this portal to a Star Wars universe.
