It’s Disney’s, for sure, but one that I have grudgingly come to agree with over years of visiting the parks. I’m one of those diehards who says mess with the originals over my dead body. (The smell of burning wood!) But go and watch most kids as they ride 😬

I tried a test version of the Millennium Falcon ride as part of reporting. Built in a CA warehouse. I must say, pretty amazing. You're in the cockpit with only a few others. But they will have enough pods to handle 1,800 people/hour.
