Visitors Will Definitely Feel The Force At Orlando International Airport
Guests flying into Orlando International Airport will get to experience the magic the minute you disembark from the plan! The airport has just debuted new decor designed to make travelers feels that you’ve stepped into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge without having yet stepped foot into Walt Disney World!
Disney is the first organization that Orlando International Airport (MCO) has invited to create artistic renderings that actually wrap the shuttle stations within the airline terminals! And what a first it is for a MAJOR transportation hub that welcomes nearly 50 million passengers each year!
“We are constantly evolving the airport experience to make it more service oriented, passenger friendly and fun,” said Raymond Anderson, senior director of concessions and properties for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “This new installation provides a preview of what vacationers and business travelers alike can expect at Walt Disney World. It’s also the most recent in a long line of collaborations between the airport and Disney over the decades.”
“Our Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge art installation reflects how very special the Walt Disney World Resort and Orlando International Airport relationship is,” said Claire Bilby, senior vice president of sales, services and events for Walt Disney World. “We’ve had a string of fruitful projects with the airport, like having two supersonic jets land simultaneously to celebrate the opening of Epcot in 1982, creating the groundbreaking Disney’s Magical Express service in 2005, today’s first-of-its kind art installation and so much more. The airport is Central Florida’s ‘welcome’ to visitors from around the globe. We’re honored to put our Disney magic to work in making that welcome exciting and memorable.”
As guests arrive enter the airport from their flights they’ll board shuttles for the airport’s Main Terminal. On there way, they’ll encounter life-size depictions of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. One scene creations a dimensional landscape where visitors feel as if you are standing inside Galaxy’s Edge looking at the iconic Millennium Falcon. In another scene, the First Order Stormtroopers are waiting to step off the shuttle as the train arrives in the station!
This Star Wars-themed installation will remain in place at the airport into 2020!
But that’s not the only place that you’ll find Star Wars magic at the airport! Also debuting at the Magic of Disney Store in the Main Terminal West Hall, you’ll find a new photo op location featuring droids from the Star Wars galaxy. When the second Disney store reopens at the Main Terminal on November 22nd it will feature a 36 foot-long video screen on an exterior wall showing scenes from Galaxy’s Edge.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge invites guests to live their own Star Wars adventures at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They can take control of the Millennium Falcon, build a droid or a lightsaber, sample galactic food and drinks and discover much more. A groundbreaking new attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opens Dec. 5, 2019, inside the land, bringing guests into a climactic battle between the Resistance and the First Order in an experience of cinematic scale.
