At Walt Disney World, Hollywood Studios is the place to find the Force. I had some time in a few of the parks at Walt Disney World and Hollywood Studios was one of them. I’ve spent some time in Hollywood Studios before because it has two of my favorite roller coasters there. The Hollywood Tower of Terror and Rockin Rollercoaster. Both of which I love to ride over and over again.
This time, I spent time getting to know the park a little better and seeing that there are other rides to ride. I rode Toy Story Midway Mania and The Great Movie Ride which they have updated a little bit with plans to update it even more.
I didn’t have time for any of the shows but there are some really fun ones like the Frozen Sing a long and The Indianna Jones Stunt Spectacular. I did have time to watch The Path of a Jedi which I really liked and spent some time exploring the Star Wars exhibit.
You have to stay for the Star Wars Fireworks Display and dessert party, which is only going to get better as the summer goes on. I saw the Fireworks show and participated in the dessert party (which is an extra cost but unlimited desserts and alcohol so worth it) and it was AMAZING. the music was so dramatic and the fireworks looked like death stars and spaceships fighting it out. This summer you’ll see even more projections as the fireworks display goes on. After seeing what they did at Disneyland with their projections I can only imagine how amazing it will be this summer.
The next generation of Star Wars-themed fireworks shows, “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular,” will premiere this summer with new themed fireworks, lasers, special effects and video projections of characters and scenes from the complete saga, all set to the iconic score of the film series.
The live stage show “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” will debut April 4, celebrating iconic moments from the Star Wars saga with live vignettes featuring popular characters such as BB-8, Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul.
The March of the First Order Stormtrooper procession led by Captain Phasma from the Star Wars Launch Bay to the park’s Center Stage adds menace to the entertainment. The just-opened Star Wars Launch Bay showcases large-scale artifacts and encounters with characters including Kylo Ren. The re-imagined Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple experience also features new characters. And at Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, guests buckle up for an enhanced high-speed journey with new Force Awakens characters and a visit to Jakku.
In the park’s Hyperion Theater, the Royal Historians of Arendelle host a jolly sing-along tale of their “Frozen” kingdom with special appearances by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff. And at Celebrity Spotlight, guests can meet Olaf and give him a warm hug.
Judy and Nick both really enjoyed the fireworks and meeting all the different characters, although Nick was way to scared to meet Kylo Ryn.
But he does want you to remember that he has a movie out in theaters…..
Judy also got a selfie with a storm trooper.
