Disneyland Paris – Season of the Force 2018Published: January 8, 2018 / Last Updated: January 22, 2018 / By: Arvid Bux
From January 13 through to March 25, 2018 Season of the Force returns to Disneyland Paris. Guests will have the opportunity to experience shows, attractions and meet-n-greets from a Galaxy Far Far Away. While the entire resort will take part in Season of the Force, Walt Disney Studios Park is the place to be throughout the season.
Last year Season of the Force was hosted for the first time at Disneyland Paris. Read our Season of the Force 2017 review.
Season of the Force – Things to do
During Season of the Force, guests have plenty to experience and do. Read below what you can experience in each park.
Season of the Force at Walt Disney Studios Park
The main park for Season of the Force, Walt Disney Studios Park. Throughout the day, there are several shows on the Production Courtyard. As times might change, it is best to keep an eye on the daily program which you can grab at the turnstiles, access through the mobile app or review on the website.
Star Wars : A Galactic Celebration
Back from last year, this nighttime spectacular which takes place at park closing, will use the Hollywood Tower Hotel as a backdrop. The stage will feature some of your favourite Star Wars Characters. The projections also feature scenes from the new Star Wars movie; The Last Jedi.
As the show is projected on the Tower Hotel, you will have an amazing view of almost anywhere on the Production Courtyard. The duration of the show is about 14 minutes and a great ending to a Star Wars day. Watch a recording of last year’s show:
Star Wars : A Galaxy Far, Far Away
During the day you have the opportunity to experience your favourite Star Wars characters on stage at the Production Courtyard. As times can differ day by day, it is recommended to check the schedule.
Star Wars : A Galaxy Far, Far Away uses some of the same screen projections of Star Wars : A Galactic Celebration but the fact that several Star Wars characters appear on stage, makes it a show you don’t want to miss.
This show mainly takes place on the screen and the stage in front of the stage. So while you can see it from anywhere on the Production Courtyard, you might want to move as close as possible to the stage. The First Order March takes place before this show, it is recommended already finding a good spot so you can enjoy both shows after one another.
First Order March
Several times a day, a First Order March lead by Phasma takes a hold of the Production Courtyard. The march takes place in front of the screen and the stage. Pay attention to the ropes put up by Cast Members.
When Phasma orders her troops over the Courtyard, you really get the feeling like the First Order has taken over Disneyland Paris.
Meet a Stormtrooper Patrol
When you not expect it, Stormtroopers will patrol the Production Courtyard. Before you know it, you are seen as a member of the resistance and arrested. While the Stormtroopers patrol the Courtyard, you will have time to snap a quick photo with them. Also here, it is recommended you check the schedule to see when the Stormtroopers are out.
Something spectacular is landing soon
Apparently something new is happening this year. What, that is still a secret. But what we gather from photos on the Disneyland Paris website, TIE fighters might be making their way to Walt Disney Studios Park.
