    We're staying at the BC 2/2 - 2/6. Hoping to see Galactic Spectacular. Any suggestions on how to plan for this event such as where to sit when to arrive etc? Will we be able to see it from the resort?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sara!

    Your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort, with a stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort is sure to be extra-special!

    In a galaxy far, far away--yet only a short walk or boat ride for you to get there--you'll find the goosebump-inspiring Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Times vary, however, during your stay, this pyrotechnical extravaganza begins at 7:45 p.m. We like to arrive 30 minutes prior to showtime, standing right in the middle of Center Stage. There is a tree to the right which may obstruct the view if you stand too far back, so try to stand far enough forward for the best view of the skies.

    Of course, purchasing tickets to Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Disney's Hollywood Studios is the perfect way to celebrate a Star Wars-filled day. The party features gorgeous Star Wars-inspired desserts, specialty drinks and a souvenir stein that's yours to keep. Better yet, the VIP viewing area will have you feeling like a Senator on Coruscant.

    From your resort area, you'll be able to see the tops of the highest fireworks, which is a nice bonus. However, it's nothing like experiencing the projections while surrounded by John Williams' iconic soundtrack.

    You'll feel The Force, for sure, that evening, as the spectacular is truly amazing! Enjoy every magical moment!

    Send more questions as you plan your stay, Sara; we love to help!
