Description And Comments

Launch Bay opened when the Studios needed more things for guests to do while new rides were being built; now it’s essentially a walk-through commercial for the latest Star Wars films. There are a few interesting models here for the serious fan, plus a short movie that summaries the whole franchise, but the draw is the character greetings.

Three characters hold court, usually Chewbacca, Kylo Ren, and BB-8. Waits in line for Chewie and Kylo usually run about 20–30 minutes. The line for the movie trailer—which, again, just summarizes the existing films— runs 15–30 minutes.

Touring Tips

Visit first thing in the a.m. for shorter lines. Disneyland’s Launch Bay kept Chewy here along with his twin in Galaxy’s Edge.
