    A line is 10 hours long because people were willing to wait that long. Nobody was being forced to get into the line. They were choosing to get in line because it was worth it to them.
    Yeah, I think it is a good way to build hype. "If people are willing to wait 10 hours, it must be pretty amazing."

    What's bad is what happened with TSL. 6 hour line to get in the day it opened, a week later no line to get in, and every attraction had a shorter wait than the top attractions at MK and AK, sometimes less than ToT and RnRC in the same park.

    Fixed.

    IOW, I don't think you can make the determination that a ride is amazing based on initial wait times. That comes down to interest and desire to ride rather than the ride quality itself.

    REVIEW

    Guardians of the Galaxy themed food and drink at Liberty Inn & Fife and Drum


    sounds pretty good and like a good size portion - definitely something to share .... They say it is a sweet bbq which can be hit or miss for me

    Still thrown off by the moldy looking bun on that bbq sandwich though
    The fries look great...and that rootbeer float thingies definitely is intriguing....the adult version, that is

    I agree, that line was supposed to be in quotes, as in what random joe-public would think. "Wow, that must be an amazing ride if people are willing to wait that long" or at least "Wow, a lot of people must think that is going to be an amazing ride."

    Either way it builds interest and hype.

    Judging by today's July park hours update (or lack thereof), Disney continues to expect light summer crowds.

    I'm torn, I like they idea of light crowds, but I also want to see Pandora in the full dark. A 9:00 pm AK close seems unnatural now.
