Star Wars Experiences at Hollywood Studios

Galaxy’s Edge

This should be your first stop at Hollywood Studios if you are a Star Wars fan! 

When it comes to rides, there are two in this area of Hollywood Studios: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

While there are only two rides, there are a ton of other things to do & see while you are in Galaxy’s Edge.

You will find many different shopping experiences, each giving you a chance to walk home with everything from your own personal droid to a Kowakian Monkey Lizard.

There are new places to eat and new food choice including blue milk!

Star Wars Launch Bay is one place you don’t want to miss if you are a Star Wars fan going to Hollywood Studios.

Meet BB8 in Star Wars Launch Bay

While not part of Galaxy’s Edge, it is a great spot to find everything from movie memorabilia to characters!

  • Launch Bay Theater – Watch a short video about the making of the Star Wars saga in film.
  • Character Meet & Greets – Visit with Darth Vader, Chewbacca & BB8.  While in the area, you will also be able to see replicas of Star Wars props.
  • The Cantina – This is a small area where you might spot a Jawa (if you are lucky!).  Even if they aren’t around, you will get to have a great place to take some photos with some really cool back drops like a holochess game table.
  • Launch Bay Cargo – This Star Wars store is what dreams are made of. You will find authentic movie props, costumes and some pretty neat Star Wars souvenirs.

Each time you ride Star Tours, you could end up in a new location!

During your voyage, you will interact with many of the otherworldly characters and you never know who you might run into!

Right next to Star Tours is a place for young Star Wars fans to do some Jedi Training.

Youngsters will get training on how to use the force and light sabers.

A few lucky trainees might even get to take on Darth Vader himself!

This training is limited to ages 4-12 and is first come, first serve.  You can register your child at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost as soon as the park opens.
