    I am visiting WDW in April 2020. Will there be any Baby Yoda entertainment, character sightings for photo ops or merchandise there by then?

    Hi, Victoria!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    From the very first episode of the Disney+ series, The Mandalorian, I was absolutely in love with The Child.  Baby Yoda, as most of us refer to him, has captured the hearts of Star Wars fans all over the galaxy.  He is as adorable as he is strong with the Force.  I cannot wait to see what kind of new adventures he experiences along with Mando, and I also cannot wait to get my hands on some Baby Yoda merchandise!

    The creators of The Mandalorian wanted Baby Yoda to be a complete surprise for fans.  In order to avoid any potential for spoilers, the production of Baby Yoda merchandise did not begin until after the series started streaming on Disney+.  However, we are now starting to see some Baby Yoda items become available on shopDisney and in various retail locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  I would imagine that by the time you visit the Most Magical Place on Earth in April, there will be an even larger selection of merchandise related to this beloved new character.

    I have not yet heard any information about Baby Yoda being incorporated into the Star Wars experiences found at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I would recommend that you follow the Disney Parks Blog to see if any announcements are made.  Even if you do not have the opportunity to encounter The Child during your visit, I know you will have a blast living out your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!

    May the Force be with you!
