    Introduction


    This page will talk specifically about Star Wars Launch Bay and any other SW offerings they will have at DHS. Also feel free to share your love of SW

    A little background on myself: Hi my name is Yulady (You-Lady), I'm a 42 year old mom of 2 teenagers and I love Star Wars. I'm an Orlando resident and an AP holder for the past 16 years.

    I post as objective as I can, I don’t usually answer the question “is it worth it”, that’s a subjective question but I will always give you my views on everything SW and my personal experiences with the event. I post everything as a rumor (even if it comes from very reliable inside sources) until Disney announces either thru their Parks Blog or directly on the WDW site.

    Star Wars A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party

    THE WDW CALENDAR HAS BEEN VERY SLOW TO UPDATE EACH MONTH


    You can check in to get your lanyard 30 minutes before the party at the entrance to LB. The actual party inside usually opens 15 minutes before it's advertised. Remember there are tables at the main dessert area, tables right outside the dessert area by the Chewbacca/Kylo Ren meet entrances, tables in the Cantina area and outside in the little courtyard Also there are benches by the Chewbacca/Kylo meet.
    For the best view of the show leave before the Stormtroopers lead you out and you will be ahead of the crowds

    Jedi Training Trials of the Temple
    This popular entertainment offering is being reimagined with new characters and a new villain to battle from Star Wars Rebels. Younglings will be guided to the site of a secret and ancient Jedi temple where they will face villains such as Darth Vader and the Seventh Sister Inquisitor from the popular Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels, and discover if they have the makings of a true Jedi. -
    Sign ups are at the Indiana Jones store in between 50s Prime Time and Indiana Jones Theater. First come, first served. Allow at least an hour for this experience. Kids have to check in 30 minutes before their reservations times and the show lasts about 15 minutes.

    General Tips
    1.-Keep Cool: drink plenty of water and gatorade/powerade. We usually bring washcloths and dump them in cold water and put them around our necks. Cooling towels found at sports stores and Amazon work great. Don't wait to hydrate. I've seen plenty of people just collapse because of dehydration. Heat in Florida is no joke. Bring an umbrella and use it while waiting for characters, parade, anything outdoors. Remember that all quick service restaurants will give you, for free, a cup of ice water. You can also refill these cups or any other containers with ice water at Backlot Express for free. Great places to cool down and you don't have to make a line are One Man's Dream and the Animation Bldg.
    2.-Make a plan: prioritize, what do you want most of all out of your SW day. And work from there.
    3.-Be patient: there will be thousands of people going to SW that want to do the same things you do. Be patient. Be polite. I know the heat and the waiting can get to you sometimes but take a deep breath and just listen to that Star Wars music in the background and chill.
    4.-Be flexible: So you made an awesome plan and you're ready to take in the day and something happens. Don't let that ruin your experience, just go improvise, have a plan B...and C and D,...
    5.-Know your kids: There's nothing better than a picture with your toddler and Chewbacca, but some kids get a little afraid of the big Wookie. Don't force them to meet a character or go to a show. The characters WON'T break character, don't expect a hug from Vader,...Villains stay Villains even if your child starts crying. What I usually tell parents is to show the kids the character before waiting in line (sometimes very long lines) and ask them right then and there if they want to meet them. Or show them videos of JT and ask them before the trip if they want to battle the Dark Side.


    6.-Have Fun!!In the wise words of Master Yoda: Do or do not, there is no try....

    Feel free to subscribe
    Also don't be shy about asking questions, the more you know the better you'll plan and the more fun you will have during SW. I regularly update these pages with any new info so you don’t have to read the entire thread.

    May the Force be With You

    Star Wars A Galactic Spectacular Review from a Non Star Wars Fan http://disboards.com/threads/offici...rty-launch-bay.3439569/page-490#post-56111430

    Star Wars a Galactic Spectacular: As the next generation of the current Star Wars-inspired fireworks show, this blockbuster nightly show, unprecedented in Disney’s Hollywood Studios history, will light up the sky with Star Wars-themed fireworks, lasers, light projections and other special effects combined with Star Wars-themed music and iconic characters and scenes from throughout the saga.


    Through these state-of-the-art special effects that project onto the nearby Chinese Theatre and other surrounding buildings, guests will gaze at the twin suns of Tatooine, push through a field of battle droids, navigate through an asteroid field, soar down the trench of the Death Star and deliver the final blow to destroy Starkiller Base. The show, which will unfold through a series of acts, will be punctuated by a tower of fire as well as powerful spotlight beams that create lightsabers in the sky.

    Video of full announcement. I'm not including detailed information on the actual Star Wars Land in this thread because we know it'll take time for it to be completed.

    Yay the thread! This will be a day long remembered.

    I'm pretty excited about the preview center thing. Hope they have it up and running soon! I'm also crossing my fingers that blue milk ice cream will show up in there!
