Event Ticket holders will have exclusive access to Hollywood Studios the night of the special event.

Captain Phasma will also lead a unit of First Order storm troopers through the park, pausing to give a demonstration of power and strength.

This special event will be on April 14th, 2017 from 7pm to Midnight. Tickets are $129 per adult and $124 for children ages 3-9. There is a discounted price for DVC members of $119 for adults and $114 for children 3-9.
Tickets are going to be extremely difficult to come by, so I would suggest ordering as soon as possible. You can click here or call 407-827-7036 for more information or to book your tickets.
I know Disney does a ton of extra ticketed events, but overall I think this could be one of the coolest ones yet. It’s a dream come true for any Star Wars fan for sure! I always have a hard time justifying the extra cost of these events, but if there’s one I would consider doing it would be this one.
