Star Wars stuff at DHS

If, like me, you’re anxiously awaiting the impending Star Wars Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (or whatever the park will be renamed), you need some sort of Star Wars in-park fix to tide you over. That’s where Star Wars Launch Bay and Star Tours (both at DHS) come in.

SW Launch Bay

At the Launch Bay, you can watch a 10-minute behind-the-scenes movie, view replicas of props/costumes/models from the Star Wars movies, meet Chewbacca or a bad guy (Darth Vader while we were there, now replaced by Kylo Ren), play Disney Infinity 3.0 (which is pretty Star Wars-heavy), and, of course, buy stuff. You may even see Storm Troopers and Jawas roaming around. My favorite part was meeting Chewie 🙂

Over at Star Tours, the ride has been revamped to add in a scene from The Force Awakens. It was very cool!

There are lots of other Star Wars things going on at DHS, from Jedi Training (for your younglings) to Symphony in the Stars – a fireworks show I’ve yet to see, but hear is out of this world. (Sorry!) For info on even more Star Wars stuff coming to DHS soon, check out this post on the Disney Parks Blog.

Have you enjoyed the expanded Star Wars offerings at DHS? What do you hope to see in Star Wars Land? And what do you think the park should be renamed?
