Star Wars at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Have a young padawan and visiting Walt Disney World? While some Star Wars experiences are geared toward older kids and adults, like Star Tours – The Adventures Continue (40″ height requirement) or meeting Kylo Ren (don’t expect hugs), there are still plenty of fun ways for younger kids to experience the force.
Here are the top four Star Wars experiences for younger kids at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Meeting Chewbacca at the Star Wars Launch Bay
Chewbacca and BB-8 both have character meets inside the Star Wars Launch Bay that are open continuously throughout the day. There are separate lines for each, and FastPass+ is not available.
Inside the Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you have the opportunity to meet everyone’s favorite Wookie, Chewbacca, and Star War’s latest villain, Kylo Ren. The Star Wars Launch Bay is located in the former Magic of Disney Animation building in the Animation Courtyard and also features the Star Wars Launch Bay Theater with a continuously running 10-minute behind-the-scenes Star Wars video and special exhibits featuring replica props, costumes and artwork. You may even encounter some patrolling Stormtroopers or trading Jawas in the area…
Our trip to the Star Wars Launch Bay, however, was solely for character meet purposes.
