I, for one, am not sad at all. But then again, I practically live around the corner to Disneyland and have had an annual pass for like three years now, so as awesome as the current ride is, it gets boring after a while. I think it had a good run, and now it's time for something new. And how can you get more epic than podracers?! Besides, I think I read somewhere that it wont be just podracing, but a couple of scenes from the PT. I could be wrong though.
I'm not even sad that we haven't gotten a set of the starspeeder yet. Its shape is really quite unimpressive in my opinion. Not even the idea of getting a minifig of that pilot droid excites me. I hate that little droid so much because he always says it's his "first flight" and because he never manages to get me to Endor!
@ CommanderKeller: I don't think they are changing the entrance area, just the ride itself. Or at least not much. We'll see.
