Calling all Star Wars Fans, we have a place to add to your bucket list! My husband is not a Disney Fan, I took him for the first time at age 35. He never watched the Star Wars Movies I went to double features when the original movies were rereleased in the 90’s with my mom.
It is a miracle we are still married after 17 years. With these differences, we have not planned any Disney Family vacations that were not involving grandparents and kids. As a participant of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I was able to discover a whole new element of Disney World beyond Mickey and Minnie. My son and I discovered why Star Wars Fans have new reason to Visit Disney World.
Why Star Wars Fans Need to Visit Disney World
My mom and youngest son were able to join me for this multi-generational conference experience. It was my mom that initiated my love for both Disney and Star Wars and so thrilled that even at age 75 she was able to see the Star Wars aspects of Disney World through a 10-year-old boy too.
Star Wars Galactic Spectacular Show
Outside of the Star Wars Simulator ride and how to be a Jedi Experience, Hollywood Studios now has a Star Wars Galactic Spectacular Show on select evenings. This is not just a fireworks show coordinated with Star Wars music, this a true showcase of the Star Wars Movies portrayed against the buildings. See Death Star below!
Here is a brief clip of the Star Wars Galactic Spectacular to watch to get you excited about your next visit to Hollywood Studios.
Get dinner before the show:
Before the show, be sure to check out the remodeled Pizze Rizzo. This recently remodeled pizza shop is great and inexpensive place to pick up lunch or dinner with your Star Wars Fans.
We had a galactic dessert party through #DisneySMMC experience and then went into Star Wars Launch Zone.
Star Wars Museum
There is a Star Wars Museum where any Star Wars Geek could spend an entire day. You will have meet and greets with Star Wars characters. If you get a chance to see the Storm Troopers walking around Hollywood Studios, they are a hoot.
What else will you find here for Star Wars Fans?
Star Wars Props from Movies
Here you will find tons of glass cases of Star Wars paraphernalia that had my son in awe!
What a great selection of props to bring you inside your favorite Star Wars Movies.
Star Wars Character Encounters at Disney World
One of our highlights was the photo op with Chewbacca, one of my favorite Star Wars characters. Wow was this guy tall and made all the scary sounds.
No matter what type of Star Wars Geek you consider yourself, a trip to Walt Disney World Hollywood Studios should be on your wish list. Pin this on your Travel board to remember to visit next time you are at Disney World.
