New Details Announced for Star Wars Galactic Nights at Walt Disney World

Star Wars Galactic Nights is rapidly approaching with almost a month to go until the big event.  The event is scheduled to take place on December 16th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and is a special ticketed event taking place after park closing from 7 PM until midnight.  There were additional details for the event released today from Disney Parks Blog that guests will definitely want to know about. We are very excited about the celebrity guests and panelists that will be attending the event.  Warwick Davis will be at the event.  He has had roles in many of the Star Wars films and will also appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story.  David Collins will also be at the event hosting the “Inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” panel discussion along with various members of Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm.  The panel is set to include the following guests:  Scott Trowbridge (Portfolio Creative Executive in Walt Disney Imagineering), Robin Reardon (Executive Creative Producer in Walt Disney Imagineering), Chris Beatty (Executive Creative Director in Walt Disney Imagineering) and Doug Chiang (VP/Creative Director at Lucasfilm).  The panel is expected to give guests a look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which is currently under construction within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (as well as Disneyland in California).

New projections will be displayed on the facade of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, which is also the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction.  The projections will feature various locations and scenes from the Star Wars universe.  Star Wars:  A Galactic Spectacular and Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show will both debut new details from the newest film opening in December, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  There will also be three new photo backdrops inspired by Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Plus, guests will still be able to enjoy various attractions around the park, meet and greets with characters, special merchandise offerings and specialty food and beverage options.  Guests will also be able to wear costumes as long as they adhere to Disney’s costume guidelines.

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!
