#MagByTheMinute: The Force Awakens at WDW

Stephanie ShusterBlog

A special event to launch the opening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is coming to Disney Springs AMC Theatres in December.


On Thursday December 17th, a unique opening night ticketed event will allow fans to be the first to see the new film. Not only will the ticket gain you a guaranteed seat to one of the first public showings of the new Star Wars movie, but you will also get to attend an out-of-this-world party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where guests will dance the night away at a DJ dance party, blast off on Star Tours- The Adventures Continue, check out the new Star Wars Launch Bay, meet characters, and enjoy a galactic presentation of fireworks that will be set to the Star Wars score.

Plus, select merchandise and food and beverage locations will be available at the party. Although there will be additional entertainment, no other attractions are expected to be open during the party. Guests are encouraged to dress in Star Wars costumes – as long as they conform to Disney’s costume policies (see waltdisneyworld.com for rules on special event costumes).  We can’t wait to see the mix of classic costumes and ones based on The Force Awakens.’
