New Star Wars Offerings Annouced for Walt Disney World

The “Symphony In The Stars: A Galactic Spectacular” nightly fireworks show will begin blasting off December 18.

Star Wars Launch Bay
Star Wars Launch Bay, located in Animation Courtyard, offers guests the chance to interact with Star Warscharacters by choosing to encounter the Dark Side in a Star Destroyer themed area, or visit with the brave Rebels in a makeshift Rebel Base – clear your mind and choose wisely, as one path may lead to Darth Vader while the other leads to Chewbacca.

Fans of the film franchise 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. Guests excited for 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, shoppers can get their fix at Launch Bay Cargo, a unique shop that will offer a wide selection of Star Wars merchandise, including original artwork.

Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
This popular attraction, which takes guests on a daring journey through the Star Wars galaxy, has been enhanced to feature new characters and adventures from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple
Younglings can get in on the fun over at Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. This popular offering, which allows young guests to step into the shoes of a Jedi in training, has been enhanced to feature new characters, including a new villain – the Seventh Sister Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars: Path of The Jedi
Guests who wish to be introduced to (or relive) the adventure and excitement of the Star Wars film franchise can do so at Star Wars: Path of the Jedi. Here, they can view an abridged cinematic reel that reviews Star Wars episodes I-VII.

Galactic Food
New Star Wars-inspired items have been added to menus at Food & Beverage locations throughout the park. Be on the lookout for Blue Milk Panna Cotta, Padawan Limeade, BB-8 Lemon and Butter Cream Cupcakes, and much more.
