    I know this is the third time they have built the ride, but it's not like they had an existing building to put it in, it has literally been built from scratch. I am amazed how quickly it has gone up.
    Roll on August. :-)

    If applications are done on the 8th, that means that the team will be hired and trained by May 1st.

    That is great news. I can't believ that is less than two months, that there is going to be a new attraction at Universal Studio Orlando.
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    So looking at the Despicable Me Hiring schedule from last year, early/mid May looks like the opening.

    However I heard along with a lot of other people that it would be Memorial Day... though that has not been announced.

    With that being said, will it be the same vehicle system used at USH? I watched some footage and it looks pretty much like the Spiderman Ride at IOA. Which is a pretty darsh garn good ride!!!

    thats inhouse though. they will hire internally until then, when then they will hire outside the company so that will take a few weeks too

    At Universal and same with at Disney, opening crews are almost always entirely internal.

    The exception was the WWOHP because of the sheer number of employees needed. Even then FJ was entirely veteran Team Members on opening day.
