Season of the Force dates accidentally released


Disney World hasn’t officially announced the dates for Season of the Force, but they actually promoted it without announcing it.

Star Wars Land Launch Bay

According to a Disney Annual Passholder site, the Dates for Season of the Force will be January 8 through March 20, 2016.  Let the planning begin!  I’d expect a similar announcement to the one for Disneyland.

  • Star Wars Launch Bay with Vader and Chewie meets
  • Special snacks
  • Special merch
  • Special weekend only fireworks at Hollywood Studios
  • New Jedi Training Academy – Trials of the Temple
  • Star Wars film clips inside ABC Theater

Season of the Force dates for Walt Disney World


  1. Where is the best place to see fireworks at Hollywood studios? I’ve heard that when HS offers fireworks, they are not to be missed. I’m trying to figure it into our trip plan for February. We will likely be hopping from Epcot or magic kingdom on the sat or Sunday. What time would you guess ?

    • Along Hollywood Blvd or near Min and Bill’s. I won’t guess at this time, but I’ll release it when it goes live or I get solid info

  2. I just read that Hollywood and Vine is offering a new Character Dining with Minnie and Pals from Jan 4-March 20th. What are your thoughts about it being Star Wars themed? Thank you!

  3. Any idea when details will officially be announced? Also… was trying to book hollywood and vine for dinner in January and was told they mysteriously will stop doing dinner at that location beginning Jan 3…. does that likely mean there will be star wars character dining then and they just haven’t opened those dates yet?

  4. Going to HS on December 4th. From the information I am reading on the web all Star Wars will be closed at that time. Is this your opinion as well? Do they ever have Star Wars characters anywhere in Disney or Downtown Disney to meet?

    • Star Tours remains open. No exact date for other Star Wars features to return except December. Star Wars characters only did meets during Star Wars Weekends. Launch Bay will make this a daily occurrence.

  5. Do you know if they might be bringing a version of the Galactic Dine In at Sci-FI for this time period? We are hoping they do. :) Thank you again for all you do!

    • I never got to make it to SWW either so I’m either hoping this is the alternative or they will bring it back or replacing somehow and it will closley mirror it. This looks like something awesome I just went in Dec and Star Wars Launch Bay was there already.

  6. Great site. I’m in the process of planing my upcoming trip, with a Star Wars loving son. Do weekend only fireworks mean Fri, Sat and Sun nights or just Sat and Sun nights? Thank you!
