Disney's Plan For Galaxy's Edge Ruined Everything

As anyone who has EVER read one of my articles knows, I LOVE Disney. The company, the movies, the parks, all of it. However, with all of the park expansions and movie deals, I've been getting kind of annoyed recently. Galaxy's Edge, the new "Star Wars" land is set to open in the parks very soon. Personally, I've never seen a Star Wars movie in my life. I still want to see them, and I can't wait for the expansion to open, but I think it could have been done differently.

When Disney bought "Star Wars," it was a big deal. It's a popular thing with a HUGE fanbase, it's iconic. In my opinion, I think that Disney Co. saw this and knew that they would have to make that one of their main focuses. That's all fine and good, but now here we are a few years later and all of the good things are being tossed to the side to make room for more "Star Wars."

We lost parades, fireworks shows, certain performers, Photopass photographers in certain locations, and even more. Toy Story Land was sized down when it could have been much bigger and less rushed. There were way too many budget cuts in order to make Galaxy's Edge perfect while throwing new additions in alongside that as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'm always open to change. I love seeing what will be added next and watching the process of it being built. However, I feel like Disney always misses a lot of great opportunities or ideas that can be made into the coolest things. For example, a lot of people were saying that the Three Caballeros ride in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot could be made into a "Coco" ride. Some employees have addressed this, but never went through with it. It would have been such a cute concept and definitely would have educated people on the Mexican culture of Dia De Los Muertos.

I know that making Galaxy's Edge as stupendous as it can be isn't only for entertainment but marketing as well. I'm sure that on opening day, they will have to stop letting people into the park due to the crowd levels. That means loads of money and everyone gets to see the new things.

Whenever something new and anticipated opens up in the parks, it takes well over a year for the crowds to fully die down, and even then they're still pretty large. Pandora has been open for about two or three years I believe, and the rides can still have over 100-minute waits on a good day. Being that "Star Wars" is a way bigger franchise, I can only imagine how intense the wait for those things are going to be.

I'm glad that Disney is taking such an iconic and legendary thing and honoring it in such a big way, but I just wish they wouldn't have forgotten about the other things that reside in the parks.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6340

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
