The Force is growing stronger at the Walt Disney World Resort with the addition of new Star Wars experiences now open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Star Wars Launch Bay
At Star Wars Launch Bay, located in Animation Courtyard, you can interact with Star Wars characters by choosing to encounter the Dark Side in a Star Destroyer themed area, or visit with the brave Rebels in a makeshift Rebel Base. One path may lead to Darth Vader, while the other leads to Chewbacca.
You can also visit two different exhibits – Celebration Gallery and Celebration Hallway to view iconic ships from the Rebel Alliance and Imperial Navy fleet, as well as replica Star Wars props and murals. In anticipation of the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens can head to Preview Gallery to explore an area filled with costumes, artwork, models and more from the new film. And of course, Star Wars collectors can get their fix at Launch Bay Cargo, a unique shop that will offer a wide selection of Star Wars merchandise, including original artwork.
