Jedi Training Academy

Kids between 4-12 years old can sign up to train under a Jedi Knight and master the force before taking on the dark side and wielding a lightsaber against some popular Star Wars villains in a show for parents. There’s no FastPass+ for this one and signup is on a first come, first served basis so get to the park early and make a beeline to the registration outpost between the Indiana Jones stage show and the 50’s Prime Time Cafe.

Star Wars Launch Bay

Jedis of all ages will love seeing rare Star Wars movie artwork and artifacts. Don’t skip the 10-minute behind-the-scenes video with exclusive interviews with filmmakers.

Meet Chewbacca

Every good Rebel Alliance family needs a holiday card with Chewie.

Meet Kylo Ren

For those on the dark side, a selfie with Kylo is a must. If you’re wearing a Disney MagicBand, have the photographer scan so you can easily download your photo and share to Facebook.

Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular

Fireworks themed and timed to the original Star Wars score? It’s truly magical. But loud. Bring earplugs for the little Jedis.

Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away

The new stage show recreates popular moments from the films with Darth Vadar, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Chewie and more. Arrive 15-20 minutes before the show starts for a good spot to see.

Star Tours

The iconic Hollywood Studios ride has been revamped with new storylines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens plus throwback stories from the prequels. The storylines are randomly generated so you never know what combination of characters you’ll see.

Stormtroopers March

Captain Phasma leads a legion of Stormtroopers from Star Wars Launch Bay periodically throughout the day. Check specific times before you go and don’t miss the photo op.
