    We are SO excited to take our Star Wars loving 5yr old son to Disney World for the first time Aug 19-28! If we purchase Early Morning Magic at Disney Hollywood Studios, are there any Storm Troopers or Jawas present in the shops 8-9am? Are the shops open?

    Hi Ashley,

    The Force runs strong in our family. I have felt it. An amazing time, this coming August, have, you will...

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is THE place to relive the magic of Star Wars at Walt Disney World Resort. Some amazing experiences await you in Star Wars Launch Bay, with props and replicas, and you can meet the friendly Chewbacca, and even encounter Kylo Ren. Stormtroopers do guard the area, so you need to make sure you don't bring along any droids they may be looking for.

    Star Tours - The Adventure Continues now includes an all-new destination based on the latest film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Younglins are invited to learn the ways of the Force in Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. And at night you must experience Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, a combination of projections, lasers and fireworks, with music from the movies. Impressive. Most Impressive.

    A great way to get a head start in your fun is with Disney Early Morning Magic - Disney's Hollywood Studios. This ticketed event will give you early access to Star Tours - The Adventure Continues and Toy Story Mania! along with your chance to meet some of your favorite characters like Woody & Buzz, Mickey and Minnie, and Olaf. And breakfast is also included! The park will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. and at this time all stores and other areas will be available for you to enjoy.

    One last tip: the Disney Visa Cards from Chase let you carry all your love for Disney in your pocket with some great benefits. One of these perks is exclusive access to Star Wars Meet 'N' Greet, including downloads of your photos to commemorate your visit to the dark side. May the Force be with you.
