New Star Wars Merchandise

Well, the first thing we noticed when we arrived at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this morning was that there were a LOT of folks looking to snag some Star Wars merchandise.

Time to Get Shopping!

We had to scan into a virtual queue to be able to snag the merchandise at select Hollywood Studios locations and right at 9AM, there were already 849 PARTIES ahead of us.

See That NUMBER?!

Whew! It seems like there’s QUITE the demand for these new items!

We headed into Walt Disney Presents this morning to check out a surprise display of the upcoming Star Wars Hotel — the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser!
