In addition to the Star Wars adventures Disneyland guests can already experience in Galaxy’s Edge and Tomorrowland, Star Wars fans can also look forward to the return of Hyperspace Mountain through July 4, 2022, and appearances from Captain Phasma and a detachment of Stormtroopers patrolling in Tomorrowland (with new visitors on the horizon).

Limited-time photo ops celebrating Disney+ original series’ set in the Star Wars galaxy include a replica of the palace throne from “The Book of Boba Fett” and the chance to recreate the moment in season two of “The Mandalorian” when Grogu connected with the Force at the ancient Jedi temple on Tython.

Lego fans will want to visit Downtown Disney’s Lego Store through May 4 to help a Lego Master Builder build an eight-foot-tall Yoda model that will be on display until May 8 (build times will be posted daily).
