According to the Disney Parks Blog, guests at the event will experience:

• Rebel Base Activities – The Rebel Base will serve as the event hub with multiple events, hosted shows, Star Wars dance parties and more taking place in the center of the park.

• Inside the Saga: Celebrity Chat Show – Catch a celebrity talk show in Epic Theater to learn more about the making of Star Wars films.

• Star Wars photo ops – Don your Star Wars finest and enjoy iconic Star Wars backdrops, including Han Solo cast in carbonite, Jabba the Hutt’s Palace, the Hoth Wampa Cave and more.

• Galactic Nights Stars in Cars Motorcade – This procession will welcome in Star Wars celebrities down Hollywood Blvd.

• Imperial March & March of the First Order – Darth Vader will lead a battalion of stormtroopers on a march down Hollywood Blvd to the Event Stage. Captain Phasma will also lead a unit of First Order stormtroopers through the park, pausing to give a demonstration of power and strength.

• Seize the Saga Interactive Scavenger Hunt – Event guests are challenged to collect Star Wars themed pieces at the photo backdrops throughout the park, revealing a surprise when all items have been collected.

• Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away – Watch high-energy clips of the best moments from the film saga juxtaposed with character moments on stage, featuring Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Kylo Ren and more.

• Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular – The park’s popular Star Wars-themed nighttime spectacular lights up the night.

Tickets are limited and cost $129 plus tax for adults and $124 plus tax for children ages 9 and under and can be bought online or by calling 407-827-7036. Disney plans to offer more Star Wars: Galactic Nights event dates in the future, though no other dates aside from April 14 have been announced at this time.
