STAR WARS Galactic Spectacular surrounds you, flows through you, penetrates and binds the galaxy together.  No wait, that’s the Force.  Anyway, you’re thrust into the middle of the Star Wars action as you gaze upon Tatooine’s famous twin suns, fight through an army of Trade Federation battle droids, navigate a swirling asteroid field, rocket down the Death Star’s narrow trench and deliver a heroic final blow to Starkiller Base.

Gather your favorite Jedi, Jawas, Wookiees, droids and Ewoks for an experience you can only get at Walt Disney World Resort.  The sounds of John Williams’ majestic Star Wars themes fill the air as the sights of twinkling lights fill the sky.  While a dazzling array of colors burst above you, imagine the awe-inspiring sights of exploding starships during a legendary Star Wars space battle—what better way to celebrate Star Wars than watching a show written on the stars!

STAR WARS Galactic Spectacular is just the latest of the Star Wars additions to Disney’s Hollywood Studios that also include Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show with character appearances from Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and BB-8 to name a few.

Throughout the day, the menacing Captain Phasma leads her squad of First Order stormtroopers in a march from Star Wars Launch Bay to the Center Stage area in an intimidating demonstration of the First Order’s indomitable strength.

Of course Star Wars Launch Bay opened in late 2015 and showcases large-scale artifacts as well as encounters with characters including Kylo Ren and Chewbacca.

Other new Star Wars themed experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios include the re-imagined Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple experience with characters from Star Wars: Rebels.  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.

Of course, all these Star Wars additions to Disney’s Hollywood Studios are the prelude for the official unveiling of a full-blown Star Wars Land coming to both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios far, far away in the future.

About John Saccheri

John Saccheri has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. John only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about this “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward. Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
