Want to brush up on your Star Wars knowledge? Here is an opportunity to refresh yourself with showings of scenes from past Star Wars films inside the Tomorrowland Theater.
Tomorrowland Expo Center
After months of renovations, Innoventions is now the “Tomorrowland Expo Center” housing Star Wars Launch Bay on the bottom floor and Super Hero HQ on the top floor.
Star Wars Launch Bay: Star Wars Launch Bay is a brand new location that takes the place of Innoventions. In this new attraction, guests will be able to interact with their favorite characters such as Darth Vader and Chewbacca, hear from directors and designers of the latest Star Wars installments, and explore exhibits chalk full of props, costumes, and artwork from both the films and the animated series. Some of these props include ships from Episode VII, Stormtrooper armor, Rebel flight helmets, and Sith and Jedi light sabers. Guests will even be able to play games based on the Star Wars films such as Disney Infinity or Star Wars Battlefront.
Super Hero HQ: Marvel character meet-and-greets with Thor and Spider-Man will be relocated at Super Hero HQ. Iron Man’s Lair of suits will also return for guests to ‘marvel’ at. For those saddened by Captain America’s absence, he is expected to return in the future although an exact date has yet to be announced.
Other limited time offerings include exciting new, specialty themed Star Wars food and merchandise. As of now, an end date on these experiences has yet to be announced.
