Is Real Lightsaber Fighting Coming to Walt Disney World?

Ok, so not exactly “real” lightsaber fighting, since I doubt Disney’s insurance would cover such a thing, but the most realistic lightsaber experiences that we’ve ever seen look to likely be in our near future with the opening of Star Wars Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.

 There was a patent application put in by Disney Enterprises for an “Audience Interaction Projection System”.  Based on the images and information associated with the patent, it appears to use drone technology and image capturing to actually reflect laser beams to resemble the light saber and follow the movements.

This looks to be pretty innovative and a lot of fun, especially for all of you Star Wars fans out there.  I have no doubt that this is only the first of the amazing new technology that we can expect to hear about as Star Wars Land is in the works!

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!
