While Galaxy’s Edge is the main focus for Star Wars fans coming to Hollywood Studios, you should know that there are other Star Wars experiences that are outside that area of the park. One place that you don’t want to overlook is Star Wars Launch Bay.
On your way through the Animation Courtyard, be on the lookout for Storm Troopers.
They will stop and talk to you if you get in their line of sight!
While they don’t typically stop to take photos, you may be able to catch them while they interact with park guests.
What You’ll Find Inside Star Wars Launch Bay
Star Wars Documentary Movie
When you arrive, you will find a screening room where you can watch an updated and exclusive documentary on the creative team behind this ever-evolving Star Wars series.
The documentary is short, but really well done and features clips from different Star Wars films along with original backstage footage.
Star Wars Meet & Greet Areas
One of the best parts of Star Wars Launch Bay is the meet & greets.
You will get the chance to meet a few of your favorite Star Wars characters like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca and BB8.
Expect at least a 30 minute wait.
The wait is worth seeing these characters.
The Star Wars characters are some of the most popular at Hollywood Studios and it is easy to see why.
You don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to fully enjoy these Star Wars Meet & Greets.
There are also some movie props you can only see when you are standing in the queues for the Star War character meet & greets.
Take your time after your meet & greets and you might even spot a Jawa. These Jawas are cute, but greedy.
They will search your pockets (and purses) for goodies.
If you would like to take a picture with them, you will need to ask. They don’t stay still very long.
Star Wars Launch Bay Cargo Center
Probably the best part is the Star Wars Launch Bay Cargo center.
Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to explore this part of Hollywood Studios because there is so much to see!
You will find tons of movie props, costumes and Star Wars merchandise!
You can even get our favorite Star Wars-themed souvenir!
