During the first annual Traveling Dad retreat at Walt Disney World Resorts, we received a sneak peek of the upcoming Star Wars attractions “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” and “First Order March” opening April 4, 2016 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away is an all-new live stage show situated in front of The Great Movie Ride. Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, BB-8, Darth Maul and more will recreate famous movie vignettes from the Star Wars film saga.
Marc Rothschild, Producer for Walt Disney Parks and Resort, Creative Entertainment added that the live show will be interactive and people will be randomly selected and invited to participate in the action. Will it be you?
Meanwhile, Steven Miller, Merchandise Communication Manager, covered the latest and greatest exclusive Disney Parks products for the Disney Parks Blog. Miller stated, “Disney has rolled out the Shop Disney Park app, a tool that allows users to purchase items found only at parks from their smart phone.” The one exception to merchandise that you can buy in the park, but not on the app, is the build your own light saber. “We really want fans to touch and feel each part of the light saber building process and there is simply not a way to do that from the app.”
Speaking of merchandise here are just some of the cool items currently available in Wattos Gratto in Hollywood Studios, this Tatooine marketplace teeming with all things Star Wars.
Looking for more keepsakes, eh? There’s also the Tatooine Traders gift shop when you exit the Star Tours ride for more collectibles and merch.
