        I'm going to use these plans to re-create a new cantina diorama eventually.

        But I believe Han Solo's booth was on the other side of the bar from the stage with the band.

        I'm still going to compromise my display to put the stage to the immediate left of Han's booth because I cut the bar in half in order to do a display in a store fixture and have the bartender's view of the cantina scene.

        Obi-Wan vs. Ponda Baba will still go down in the same area it always did.

        The image is an example of what will not happen, unfortunately. That is too bad, as that looks cool.

        That said, they are considering turning the pizza restaurant into the Mos Eisley Cantina which is a nifty idea. But I suspect that they won't carry through with this unless Disneyland California does it first (which would be fine by me since Tomorrowland is now the least-interesting land in the park), Disneyland Paris doesn't follow through with a lot of their plans, from what I've heard.

        Well this is nothing like what I really want, such as a roller coaster around a big ATAT that dives through Hoth ice caves where people ride in snowspeeder cars and man laser tag weapons that track there accuracy for a score at the end of the ride

        That would be an awesome ride Tycho. Much better than just a simulator ride.

        Disneyland has a ride where you shoot stuff and it tracks your score, Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters, I actually didn't enjoy the ride though because the shooting was distracting, and the shooting wasn't that good because you really aren't sure if it's tracking your hits or not. I think a ride is a ride and shooting is shooting, and together they're always going to be one thing OR the other, never a combination of both.

        That said, what would you be shooting from your snowspeeder in that ride, probe droids and wampas?

        "Endorance" - the high-speed coaster ride where your "coaster" is a speederbike.

        Toy Story Mania is a more fun shooting game, in those terms. You're moving around in a cart, "shooting" at 3D images, with animated balls or projectiles or whatever appearing to shoot out and hit the targets, so you can at least tell if you're hitting anything. I guess it's still more of a shooting game than a ride but it's a little better in both terms than Astro Blasters. Apparently these are the only kinds of rides that the Toy Story franchise will ever get.

        Anyway, I would go nuts for a larger Star Wars area at any of the Disney parks. The fact that Disney parks and SW have become more and more intertwined over the last ten years or so makes this a definite possibility, and so do things like the Harry Potter section at Universal. The two bad things about Wizarding World are that, while Universal is good, there's no doubt that Disney could so, so much better; the other is that there simply wasn't enough space for everyone and not enough attractions within that small area, so giving it enough breathing room is essential. Hell, I got giddy about the build-a-droid sets. Confirmation on something like this would make my head explode.

        I Like steve's idea. It should be like ninja or batman at magic mountain So the speeder bikes are suspended from above and it feels like you're flying. You could actually wack Imperial targets with a lightsaber accessory. On my snow speeder ride half the passengers sit backwards like the tail gunner.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?
