If you are not familiar with Star Wars Launch Bay, it is a must-see for Star Wars fans visiting Disney World. In addition to the character meet and greets, you will also be able to watch a film about the Star Wars movies, play interactive games, explore cavernous hallways filled with countless exhibits and real movie props and shop at a Star Wars gift store that includes pretty much every Star Wars-branded item imaginable.

Additionally, Captain Phasma and a number of Stormtroopers have been known to patrol outside Launch Bay quite regularly.

I will be heading to Hollywood Studios in about a week, so I’ll be updating this post with BB-8 meet and greet photos soon in the meantime, here is a quick video of the soft launch of the BB-8 experience from our friends over at WDW News Today:
