    Will WDW be offering any new events and/or attractions related to the new Star Wars movie that is scheduled to be released in December 2015?

    Hello, Wendy! Once the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters in December 2015, I'm sure the internet will be abuzz with news of the Force. Like you, I am a big fan of these films, and I'm also hopeful that there will be additional ways to feel the Force at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    As the movie date approaches, keep your eye on the official Disney Parks Blog for information about possible events and meet-ups, as that is the place with the most accurate and up-to-date information. I have not heard about any special events to celebrate the movie release just yet, but if anything is added, you will be able to read about it in advance on the Disney Parks Blog.

    At this time, Guests can blast off to a galaxy far, far away at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Star Tours - The Adventures Continue is one of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World, and you can certainly enjoy this ride on your next visit, too.

    Tatooine Traders offers a fun assortment of Star Wars and Star Tours-themed items, and is also located at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I observed my nephew build his very own lightsaber there a few months back, and it was such a fun experience (and a rather unique souvenir).

    Star Wars Weekends will be in full swing during select dates this May and June, so if you would like to enjoy even more out-of-this-world entertainment well before the December movie release, this event is not to be missed.

    If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel. Have a magical day, Wendy, and may the Force be with you!
