The Force is awakening at Disney World with new Star Wars themed attractions

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Force is awakening a little early at Walt Disney World.

The Florida-based theme park resort is unveiling Friday new Star Wars entertainment two weeks ahead of the much-anticipated release of the movie, “Star Wars: TheForce Awakens.”

Some of the Star Wars attractions opened earlier this week at the resort’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

Those include a courtyard filled with all-things Star Wars, a video game centre, a movie theatre showing abridged versions of the Star Wars movies and a motion simulator showing Star Wars locales and characters.

Starting next year, visitors also will get to see a Star Wars-themed firework show.

Both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California are planning Star Wars-themed lands in the near future.
