Disney Springs Unveils Event Guide For Triple Force Friday
The Force is getting stronger at Disney Springs as Walt Disney World prepares for Triple #ForceFriday! During this special retail event, visitors can be among the first to purchase exciting new merch inspired by “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “The Mandalorian” and “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order”. Some of these products will be available at World of Disney and The LEGO Store at Disney Springs and will even include a variety of Disney Parks exclusive items.
The event officially kicks off this Thursday (October 3rd)with merchandise being unveiled starting at midnight on October 4th. In honor of the occasion, World of Disney and The LEGO Store will both be open from midnight until 3 am.
We do expect the crowds to be in full FORCE so you’ll want to plan to get here a little early so you can enjoy some other out-of-this-galaxy happenings in the Marketplace.
Here are a few important tips and can’t-miss happenings for the event:
Wristbands: Be sure to check-in and get a numbered wristband near Basin starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 3 from an Event Cast Member.
BONUS: Guests who receive a virtual queue wristband will receive a special offer from The VOID so you can check out Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire while you countdown the minutes to midnight. (Valid only until 11 p.m. on October 3. See location for more details.)
Parking: Try parking in the Lime or Grapefruit garage for closest access to the event happenings.
Food: Bring Your Appetites! Starting at 9 p.m., themed treats and snacks will be available for purchase, including mini Chewbacca cakes from Amorette’s Patisserie and themed cocktails at select Outdoor Vending Carts—plus Lightsaber Churros starting at 11 p.m. (All available while supplies last.) The guest-favorite Breakfast Poutine from The Daily Poutine will also return and be available until 3 a.m.
Dance Party: Once you’re fueled you can dance the night away at the Marketplace Stage from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. during a galactic dance party. It’s the perfect spot to mix and mingle with fellow Star Wars fans.
