The first-of-its-kind event for Meta Quest at Walt Disney World continues the popular, limited-time VR experience available at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District last November. During this new immersive action-adventure, guests take on the role of droid repair technician operating near the Outer Rim.

The complimentary limited-time Meta Quest VR Experience featuring “Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge” is open daily from noon to 10:00 pm ET at Disney Springs West Side. Guests can also receive free giveaways and the ability to purchase a Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset on-site. In addition, Star Wars fans who complete the experience on May 4, 2022 – aka Star Wars Day – will receive an exclusive poster featuring the Guavian Death Gang cell operating on Batuu and their leader, Tara Rashin (Debra Wilson).

About the Star Wars Virtual Reality Experience at Disney Springs:

This complimentary hands-on preview version of ILMxLAB’s virtual reality experience expands the world of Batuu like never before! Once inside the Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset, fans will be immersed within sweeping 360 views of the Star Wars galaxy. The adventure takes place on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu, as depicted in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the immersive, epic lands at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

“The story features both new and iconic characters from the ‘Star Wars’ galaxy,” wrote Disney Springs Digital Marketing & Social Media Manager Emma Martin in the Disney Parks Blog. “Gameplay was designed for a variety of players – from ‘Star Wars’ fans to VR gamers – at home on Quest 2. Continue your epic journey with ‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge-Last Call,’ the recently-released expansion. This new add-on gives you the opportunity to expand your virtual-reality adventures on the Outer Rim and experience more eras in the ‘Star Wars’ galaxy.”

Even if you can’t make it to Disney Springs, Meta Quest and ILMxLAB are offering fans across the U.S. 50% off all Star Wars experiences on Meta Quest from 10:00 am PT on April 29, 2022, through 11:59 pm PT on May 5, 2022.

The complimentary preview experience cannot be booked online or by phone. However, when you arrive at Disney Springs, a Meta Quest staff member will assist on-site with reserving a time to come back to participate, or direct guests to queue inside the building, based on availability. The minimum age to participate is 13.

Oh well… once again Disney is totally missing the mark with bringing in random characters instead of the ones we all know and love. Just means I’ll be saving some money!
