It is a good time to be a Star Wars fan!
Just when you think Disney World can’t get any busier…it does!
We started the year with a FULL year’s worth of announcements in January alone, but there was still LOTS of Disney news in February and March. April was certainly no exception, with the long-awaited reopening of the PeopleMover, and many transformations happening around the parks! Without further ado, let’s take a look at 14 new things that happened in Disney World in April!
Happy May the 4th (a.k.a Star Wars day)!
What a day it has been! We got some BIG news about the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser (Star Wars hotel) experience, joined over 800(!!!) of our friends in line to get some Star Wars merchandise, and we’re checking out tons of Star Wars treats in Disney World. And now an incredibly special lightsaber hilt set has become available online!!
Happy May the 4th, everyone!
The day celebrating all things “from a galaxy far, far away” is already off to a bang! Disney just shared that the official opening of the much-hyped Star Wars Hotel, Galactic Starcruiser, has been pushed to 2022, they also shared a video of that crazy cool working lightsaber in action (we told you we didn’t dream that up!!). Now, we finally got some information on where we’ll be able to EAT onboard the Halcyon!
It’s Star Wars Day, get it? May the FOURTH?
What better day for some SERIOUSLY exciting news from Disney World about the upcoming Star Wars Hotel experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. Not only did we learn that the hotel will have a delayed launch but we also learned a LOT of new details — including news about Disney’s REAL LIGHTSABER.
Hello movie stars, and welcome to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We’re back in this lovely theme park to give you all the updates on what’s new! We found new merchandise, a snazzy car in the parking lot, and so much more, so let’s dive in!
There has been a TON of news about lightsabers in Disney World recently!
Two new Legacy Lightsabers arrived in Galaxy’s Edge not too long ago (Count Dooku and Ahsoka Tano), then we spotted a sale on lightsaber blades at Dok Ondar’s, and just yesterday, the voice of Ahsoka Tano, Ashley Eckstein, stopped by Disney Springs to autograph several lightsabers that sold out incredibly quickly! Disney’s been releasing new lightsaber designs left and right, and now we have THREE more lightsaber hilts that just dropped online!
If you’re a fan of Star Wars TV shows, then you know that Ahsoka Tano has some of the coolest lightsabers out there!
First of all, she wields TWO lightsabers instead of just one (known as Jar’Kai in the Star Wars universe), and it’s not a skill that we often see utilized. On top of that, her lightsaber color changes multiple times as a character, going from blue to green to white. Disney’s definitely capitalized on this, selling both color-changing Ahsoka lightsabers, and the white versions! You can even get her lightsabers outside of the Disney parks, and today there are a limited number of sabers autographed by Ahsoka Tano herself!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has some truly AWESOME merchandise!
Jedi robes, droids, plushes of weird galactic animals, if it’s Star Wars related, they’ve probably got it! We’ve especially been loving the lightsabers and lightsaber accessories! You can build your own saber at Savi’s Workshop, or you can buy one that’s already made. And if you’ve got a lightsaber (or an interest in buying one), there’s a great sale on blades in Galaxy’s Edge TODAY!
