If you thought New Year's in Times Square was rough, Disneyland is about to get a taste of what it would be like to ring in the new year every day.


Much hype has been built around the most anticipated expansion to two Disney parks announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger back in 2015 at the D23 Expo, a convention for the ultimate Disney fan. That hype is going to lead to long lines for one of the new rides.

Could your weak bladder handle it?

Disney is making sure there are no leaky trousers by issuing a convenient service. The park will issue passes so guests who need to make a run for it could easily have their place held in line.

Disney officials told PEOPLE this is not a new initiative and said the parks work to accommodate guests who need to get out of line for any reason.


Lines could take hours, especially for a new ride like Millennium Falcon: Smuggerl's Run – the next generation of simulator rides that will allow guests to pilot Han Solo's iconic Corellian light freighter.

The story of how the craft became the property of Han Solo was told in the film Solo: A Star Wars Story, available here.

In an effort to make waiting in line more pleasant, Disney devised distractions like mobile app interactions, games conducted by cast members, and character performances.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is the name of the expansion simultaneously finishing up with construction inside Disneyland park in Anaheim and in Disney's Hollywood Studios park in Florida. The latter park's expansion is scheduled to open in August.

Once Galaxy's Edge opens in Anaheim on May 31, hordes of guests will descend upon the Black Spire Outpost – the village on the planet Batuu located on the edge of the Outer Rim territories where the new land takes place.


However, make sure you have reservations.

Details are forthcoming but all guests are required to have reservations before setting foot in Galaxy's Edge prior to their arrival in Disneyland.

Galaxy's Edge will open in two phases, with the second phase featuring one of the most ambitious attractions Disney Imagineers have ever come up with.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will put guests right in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. But you'll have to wait. Disney is delaying the opening of that experience for later in the fall.

That means Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run will be the only operating attraction on opening day.


While most fans can't wait to visit Galaxy's Edge, the patient guests are willing to delay their trips.



But the bathroom pass is undoubtedly a good perk.




There is always room for more improvement.

When Pandora opened in Disney's Animal Kingdom, guests waiting hours in line for the Avatar-based Flight of Passage attraction experienced some leakage.




As you can imagine, the line for Smuggler's Run will be as epic as the Star Wars saga, and Disneyland is prepared to handle the crowds.

Using the force to hold your pee could only get you so far, so take advantage of this convenient system.

If you can't wait for the latest Disney attractions, you can revisit the Star Wars universe with episodes 1-6 available here, episode 7 available here, episode 8 here as well as Rogue One here and Solo here.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
