I don’t think that’s true. Obviously there will be more people than there were opening weekend, but “packed to the gills” seems unlikely. They’re still just adding people to existing reservations, which isn’t a free-for-all. You’ll still have a lull where MFSR lines drop (maybe not all the way to walk-on, but probably to 30 minutes or less), which will still be much better than when it opens generally and probably hits 3+ hours immediately and never drops all day. You’ll still certainly have an advantage over the people there the next day!
I hope you’re right! 30 minutes or less for MFSR sounds great. Still hoping we will be able to get into the cantina too!

I'm having a hard time keeping up... how are they handling Oga's these days? Still have to make a beeline there at opening of our window? Would we still have to arrive very early for our 8am slot to be among those who can get in?

Sorry if this has been answered, but I searched and didn't find an answer. My two ds (6 and 9) want to make the droid because they have saved up $100. Is there anyway I can escort them in and let them build it together, or are they strictly enforcing the two guest rule?

    I didn't see them enforcing any kind of limit, but it does get pretty crowded in there, there isn't much extra space in the build area. At 6 and 9, I really don't see how it would be any problem for you to go with them, they won't be able to do it on their own and it's pretty DIY. I figured mine out without any help, but it took me a few tries (I kept putting his legs on backwards, that's not important is it? :) ).

    You will be fine. My adult friend built one and myself and another adult were with him (if it was too crowded one of us was going to move to the other side of the barrier)

    I didn’t get an email about adding guests to my reservation, but I called anyway and was allowed to add people. If you want to add people, I’d call as it seems they’ve changed the policy.

    Any reports of being able to change names on the reservation ahead of time? I know there have been reports of being able to do this at check-in.

    Oh man, I guess that means my reservation on June 23 will be packed to the gills. Sigh... I wish I could have gotten opening weekend!
    We’re the same day and I’m worried as well! Especially with the reports they’re letting anybody add to their reservation even if they didn’t get the email. Our priority is Oga’s as well - fingers crossed for both of us. I am really glad I went with the 8am-noon time slot though; it still has the be the calmest of the crazy.

    And it will all be calm compared to the next day! Which I suppose if we don’t get in to the Cantina on the 23rd, we can always try again on the 24th & 25th.

    We are also 8-noon. I do this it’s the best slot!

    Since the "you can add people" emails went out, I've had FOUR different people contact me and offer to add me to their reservations next week.

    I'm going to be in Utah next week. :sad:

    Only you people understand my pain.
    I must not know enough Disney people or Star Wars fans because no one has mentioned anything about getting an email in my immediate friend group lol. I got an email and the people who I asked don't want to go haha

    8am-noon for Oga's? I guess you're after different beverages to me :P My last visit was 2-6 and we got into Oga's at just after 5pm - perfect for an afternoon beverage or two :-)

    Heh. It's been kind of a random group of people contacting me, actually; I think it's mostly just because everyone on my social media knows I go to DL all the time and I'm pretty much always down for Disney.

    Except next week. Whomp-whomp.

    Which is why I think Disney is smart, about the way they opened SWGE in CA. I really wish they would do that here in FL, maybe make 2/3 of the reservations for hotel guests, and 1/3 for non-hotel, 30 days out. Makes some people mad online, but better than people losing their heads at the parks because of the waits.

    I do think they need to do at least two lightsaber building rooms, and at least two cantinas (different themes) at WDW. Those are the biggest tie-ups in DL
    It’s not June 24th yet...

    The Bloody Rancor was the perfect adult beverage for 9am! My husband got a cocktail off the regular menu (The Bespin Fizz), and that was yummy, too. The music was a lot quieter than when I went on opening day (the 2-6 time slot), and I wasn't sure if that was because of time of day or if they've just lowered the volume overall...

    After seeing the list the only thing I really want is the dolls of course. I wish theyd shown us at least one doll pic. That woody is tempting but is the doll itself black and white entirely? Im trying to limit myself to dolls only but Disney is really good at luring me in.
