Hyperspace Mountain

Get your heart racing as you are catapulted into the middle of a Star Wars battle in this re-imagined version of the classic Space Mountain attraction. The Rebel Alliance needs your help flying a vessel to survey an Imperial Star Destroyer spotted near Jakku. An elite X-wing squadron escorts you into hyperspace where the Star Destroyer awaits. The battle is on! You’ll be caught in a barrage of red and green blaster fire as you zip and twist your way around. Stay on target and expect out-of-the-world thrills on Hyperspace Mountain!

Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple

Under the tutelage of a Jedi, new recruits can learn how to use the Force – and their wit – to wield lightsabers. The Empire has forced the Jedi into the distant corners of the galaxy so training will occur in secret at the ancient Jedi temples. Soon, novice Knights will be forced to use their new skills as they come face-to-face with Darth Vader and the Seventh Sister Inquisitor from the popular Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels. However, beware, there’s another dark warrior hovering in the shadows who poses an even greater threat. Who will be brave enough to face the new menacingly vengeful opponent?

First Order on Patrol

Meet Captain Phasma as she leads a team of Stormtroopers on reconnaissance patrol in Tomorrowland, looking for any signs of the Resistance. Trained from birth, her new generation of Stormtroopers are known only by their unit designations and are constantly fed First Order propaganda to ensure absolute loyalty. If your allegiance lies with the light side, be sure to gather any intelligence you can but do not, I repeat, do not reveal any secrets or locations of the Resistance.

Star Wars: Command Post

Journey to a hidden Resistance base for the opportunity to encounter some of the greatest heroes of the Star Wars saga. Come face to face with Wookie warrior Chewbacca, Han Solo’s faithful co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon and mechanical mastermind. You might also meet the brave droid R2-D2 who served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils.
