Daughter of Carrie Fisher Visits Disneyland & Honors Mom With Special Headband

It’s hard to believe it has been almost 5 years since the Princess of Star Wars has passed away. Carrie Fisher will forever be a Star Wars legend for her role as Princess Leia. Her daughter, Billie Lourd, recently visited Disneyland. She rode the popular Star Wars: Rise of Resistance attraction and honored her Mom with a special headband.

As reported by People: “Billie Lourd channeled her late mother Carrie Fisher during a recent day at Disneyland. The actress, 28, shared footage on Friday from a trip to the Anaheim park with friends. She spent time at Galaxy’s Edge and riding Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, while also giving a nod to Fisher and her character in the sci-fi franchise by donning Princess Leia mouse ears for the outing. Lourd called the Star Wars attraction the “best ride ever,” but followed up by adding that Soarin’ is “a close second.”

Billie looks like she’s having a blast! The Princess Leia Ear Headband by Ashley Eckstein were limited release ears that cost close to $80. They flew off shopDisney, and we can only hope they will be restocked one day. Of course, no one deserves to wear those ears more so than Billie Lourd!

Billie Lourd followed in her mother’s steps and became an actress herself. She’s starred in Scream Queens (2015–2016) and American Horror Story (2017–present). She’s also made Star Wars appearances as Lieutenant Connix in the Star Wars sequel trilogy (2015–2019). It sounds like she spent the perfect day at Disneyland, while honoring her mother, a Star Wars legend.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
