We are going as a HUGE group (24 people) in January and I am so excited! My family will be staying at the Riviera and the rest will be at Pop Century so we will be able to hop the Skyliner back and forth. Saving up now so that I can go to both Savi's & Droid Depot. I have been deliberately keeping myself in a self-imposed media blackout of most of Galaxy's Edge so I can see it for the first time in person. (Already warned my wife that I may cry when we get there.)

CAIRat, definitely jealous and I lost the media blackout fight a while ago - I was just too curious. Even though I've seen it, I still think I'm going to get emotional. I'm pretty sure my inner 12-year-old will go into sensory overload.

Have lots o' fun. January will be here sooner than you think!

I know. It seems so far away and yet so close. Only videos I have seen have been inside the Droid Depot (mostly because my 4-year-old insists on seeing them and is already saving to build himself a BB unit when we are there) and a couple of Savi's but I have avoided the walking around/exterior videos as much as possible. SOOOO glad that Rise of the Resistance will be open when we are there.

It's gonna be interesting trying to herd 24 people but the plan is to start out together for a couple hours and then let everyone go off and do their own stuff until dinner. Booked our dinners at Bome, Chef Mickey, Coral Reef, Cape May & Teppan Edo (but hoping to swap that one out for the Space restaurant when/if it is open by then).

I like your plan. We once did about 12 people (the youngest was 9) at Disneyland for a one day. All the adults had planned in advance the path, and we had also planned for a split because there was a cadre of rides that some of the group had asked to do that others weren't down for - so we started out okay. The mistake we made is that we allotted for no flexibility in our schedule - something we should have foreseen given that we had kids/teenagers with us who were (understandably) caught up with impulse response. The moment we tried to adjust the plan on the fly, everything spiraled and tempers even flared. It was kind of nutty.

Interestingly, the best group strategy was when we went in a group of 8, half of whom were between 8-14. We had no-preplan, but told the four kids they were to work it out. The four adults agreed to do whatever and we only had to insert ourselves when we realized the kids would not stop to eat unless told to Razz

No matter what happens, the craziest day at Disney is still better than the best day in the real world Very Happy

Yeah. Structure is the bane of a large group. We went to Disneyland a couple years back in a group of around 16 and we found it worked really well to start our day at the same place, hit a few rides and then let everyone go their separate ways until we all met for lunch then scatter again until dinner. Managed to avoid any confrontations and everyone had a great time.
