New Details Announced for Star Wars Galactic Nights at Walt Disney World

Star Wars Galactic Nights is rapidly approaching with almost a month to go until the big event.  The event is scheduled to take place on December 16th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and is a special ticketed event taking place after park closing from 7 PM until midnight.  There were additional details for the event released today from Disney Parks Blog that guests will definitely want to know about. We are very excited about the celebrity guests and panelists that will be attending the event.  Warwick Davis will be at the event.  He has had roles in many of the Star Wars films and will also appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story.  David Collins will also be at the event hosting the “Inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” panel discussion along with various members of Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm.  The panel is set to include the following guests:  Scott Trowbridge (Portfolio Creative Executive in Walt Disney Imagineering), Robin Reardon (Executive Creative Producer in Walt Disney Imagineering), Chris Beatty (Executive Creative Director in Walt Disney Imagineering) and Doug Chiang (VP/Creative Director at Lucasfilm).  The panel is expected to give guests a look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which is currently under construction within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (as well as Disneyland in California).

New projections will be displayed on the facade of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, which is also the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction.  The projections will feature various locations and scenes from the Star Wars universe.  Star Wars:  A Galactic Spectacular and Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show will both debut new details from the newest film opening in December, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  There will also be three new photo backdrops inspired by Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Plus, guests will still be able to enjoy various attractions around the park, meet and greets with characters, special merchandise offerings and specialty food and beverage options.  Guests will also be able to wear costumes as long as they adhere to Disney’s costume guidelines.

Tickets to the event are available for purchase.  The cost is $129 for adults and $124 for children aged 3 to 9.  There are special discounts on the ticket prices available for Annual Passholders and DVC Members.  The tickets can be purchases online or by calling 407-W-DISNEY.

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
