Star Wars Addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Star Wars experiences were announced for Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, Florida at the D23 Expo this weekend.  Here are a few of the highlights…

Star-Wars-Launch-BayStar Wars Launch Bay will open later this year and allow you to experience exhibits, behind-the-scenes action, visit some new characters, food, and new merchandise from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  This experience will be located in the current Animation Courtyard portion of DHS.

Season Of The Force will debut in early 2016 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This will be a new fireworks show set to the score penned by the brilliant composer, John Williams.  This will be a seasonal event and will take place on the weekends.  Dates have not been announced, as yet.  And, I’m not sure if this is a replacement for Star Wars Weekends, or in addition to SWW.

Star-Tours-TACStar Tours – the Adventure Continues will be getting an update.  But, it doesn’t seem like there will be a need for much refurb time.  There will be new scenes added to the current ride from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  This should ad a bit more variety to this random experiential attraction.

Disney VISA Cardholders will be able to order new cards with Star Wars characters on them.  And, there will be the Star Wars Imperial Meet and Greet for Disney VISA holders, as well.

The Star Wars Land experience will take us to a new, never before seen planet near the outer rim.  It will include two new ride experiences, and the much anticipated Cantina will be quite a draw. This 14 acre additions is being considered the MOST ambitious undertaking in Disney Company History.  There will be a mirrored experience built at Disneyland Park in California, too.  No time line has been announced for completion of these projects, but I hope progress will be seen quickly!

Thanks for reading, sharing, or commenting!  Have a Blessed and Magical Day, my friends!

I am a Disney fanatic who can't get nearly enough time to be there! I am married to someone who isn't as into it as I am, but tolerates my "hobby". I live in Ohio, but would love to make the move to Orlando, if I would work either at Walt Disney World, or in some peripheral business serving the WDW area! I invite you to read, comment, and submit ideas anytime at threestrandswdw@outlook.com. Or, even better, send me a trip report to share with others! We all like to live through the experiences of others, help us stay connected to the magic! Thank you!!
