The Star Wars Launch Bay will be the centerpiece of Season of the Force and it’ll be where guests can meet the characters and get a sneak peek at Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

These areas are: the Disneyland Railroad, Fantasmic!, Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia, Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island, and Davy Crockett Express Canoes. All of these attractions will reopen at a later date.
