Disney Hosting Star Wars Galactic Nights at Walt Disney World During Celebration Orlando

by Lucas Siegel

A brand-new special event at Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios will debut on April 14, 2017, right in the middle of Star Wars Celebration Orlando. The special event will be ticketed, so fans will need to purchase tickets separately - this is not a Celebration-affiliated event, it's just timed to it to allow as many Star Wars fans as possible to attend.

The event runs 7 p.m. until Midnight on April 14, and tickets will cost $129 for adults, with a five dollar discount for children 9 and under. Tickets are on sale now, and will be "extremely limited," Disney cautions. The event sounds big, with Celebrity Chat Show, photo ops, a scavenger hunt, a nightime spectacular, and even Star Wars dance parties. The full list of entertainment as of press time follows.
