Guests will be able to celebrate the release of this amazing new film at Walt Disney World during the Star Wars: Galactic Nights event, which is set to take place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 27th.  The event is a Star Wars themed event that will be held at the park after closing from 7 PM through midnight.  We previously announced details on what guests can expect at the event, but Disney Parks Blog released a breakdown of new details for the event featuring exclusive “Solo: A Star Wars Story”-inspired content.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
