I would like that and I also doubt it. It is posted in red letters that resort reservations do not guarantee entry and same posting about tickets/passes not guaranteeing entry.

I think WDW just has too many rooms to be able to do this.

They should do it for WDW club level.

    I was kind of hoping the Star Wars tour price would have gone up a bit or the description beefed up a little. Our 180 day booking window is next month for our December 2019/My Star Wars boy's 10th birthday trip. I was hoping for the Star Wars tour or paid FP. I just want to know what's happening at this point so I know what's happening and how much it's going to cost o_O

    Has anyone heard back, yet, from WDW VIP tours as to whether or not the tour guides will have access to GE? We have a tour booked for August 30 and our hotel is booked, but I'm in a holding pattern on flights as we may adjust this trip if private VIP tour access is a no-go. I'm really trying to be patient with this, but I'm kind of busting at the seams trying to wrap up my trip planning!

    That’s why I booked a club level for Easter next year. Maybe there will be some kinda paid option like they have now for fast passes. I said I would never do it but if the second phase opens by then and it’s just too nutty I’ll cough it up. I don’t want to but I just don’t want the stress of it all.

    Unfortunately I have not heard it and ours isn't until Sept. I called and chatted in and both times they stated they didn't know yet. When they did know, they're going to send out an automated email with information. It's extremely annoying! I just want to know! lol

    I don't trust that we will get any type of communication. In dealing with other issues at WDW, I've been told numerous times CM's would get back to me and they never did. I guess I will keep checking these boards and, perhaps, call again once DL GE opens.

    Not sure if this has been asked yet, haven’t been able to read all the info here.
    Does Disney still let you get in line for a ride 1 minute before park closing? Can you do that for FOP? I’m wondering because if you can do this for the rides at swge, how will they have paid evening events at HS like from 10-1 am. Won’t the lines still be 3-4 hours at park closing? I know they haven’t announced anything yet, but I’m sure the paid events are coming.

    Yes you can still do that. However many times when pandora opened they didn’t always allow it especially if there was an evening EMH. They would cut the line off before park closing.

    I'm was thinking about a VIP tour over Thanksgiving. I called WDW yesterday and they still have not worked out the details of GE. I am expecting $625/hour since that is the holiday rate but it could be more if the demand goes up.

    I think I'm going to cancel mine for 9/10 and just suck it up and do a 6am early entrance. Not necessarily that day.

    I was able to book a private tour for November 2nd from 11 am to 6 pm. This will coincide with Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend. The total was $550 an hour, or $3,850 total. They confirmed on phone it would include Galaxy's Edge.

    Now, to find 9 people to join me at $385 a head.

    We would be super interested for 3 people (2 adults; 1 child age 12). Is the private tour just for DHS?

    It sounds like it is truly for whatever we want. Private transportation between parks, etc. If you have any specific questions I can ask!

    Person I spoke to on phone said they can't confirm it'll include GE yet. @rteetz have you heard anything one way or the other?
