Disney may be an entertainment empire, but that doesn’t mean that each Disney ride is up to the typical standards associated with the company…

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is a popular Hollywood Studios area with more than one appealing attraction—but not everybody thinks it will remain popular these days because the ride is apparently in some visible distress!

In a conversation on the website called Reddit,  Walt Disney World Resort fans began discussing (once again) the many ways that Disney has been disappointing them lately.

Some fans have taken issue with Disney’s rising prices; others have found certain experiences, such as meals at this exclusive restaurant, lacking. Many Disney fans have specifically pointed out the “ridiculous” number of ride breakdowns plaguing the Disney Parks as The Walt Disney Company deals with what is reportedly a dramatically understaffed maintenance department.

Apparently, the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge area in Hollywood Studios within Walt Disney World Resort is the next part of the Disney World landscape that is showing the effects of poor maintenance.

The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge area might have big draws like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, but guests have not failed to notice the difference in the area and the attractions’ quality as of late.

There have been many ride breakdowns and evacuations for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in particular lately, and as one Reddit user put it, “they really need to stop cheaping out on repairs.

The version of the ride these days is apparently “so underwhelming” and far less “immersive” in many Disney World guests’ opinions.
