Star Wars Weekends 2014 returns to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort starting May 16. You may recall I shared a first look at some merchandise created especially for this event along with details about the fan-favorite Star Wars – D-Tech Me Experience. This year, these items and more will be found in Darth’s Mall, the out-of-this-world merchandise shop located in Soundstage 1 between Studio Backlot Tour and Toy Story Midway Mania. I recently visited the location as the merchandise team was putting on the finishing touches. Here are a few images of some of my favorite things I found.

Toys have been an important part of Star Wars ever since Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope debuted in theaters in 1977. I was happy to see several new toys not previously discussed including a new wave of Disney-Pixar’s Cars as Star Wars characters and a giant clone trooper that is unique to Disney Parks.

Other favorite items include a calendar that contains marketing artwork for Star Wars Weekends, light-up glasses and reusable tote bags. There will also be several new apparel items including items from Ashley Eckstein’s incredible Her Universe line. I love the dress that reminded me of bed sheets and curtains I once had as a child!

Speaking of apparel, we will be offering select Star Wars Rebels shirts on our Disney Parks online store from May 16-22. These will be the same shirts offered at Darth’s Mall, just in case you aren’t able to attend the event this year. Visit http://www.DisneyStore.com/ParkEvents to place an order.

I hope to see you at Star Wars Weekends!

Was just in there today at the Rebel Rendezvous and got tons of stuff! It’s AWESOME!

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 5:53 pm

@Ethan – I’m glad to hear you had a great time! May the Force be with you :)

Looking forward to my first visit during Star Wars weekends. What are the items in the first photo? They look cool but I’m not sure what they are.

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 5:54 pm

@John – I hope you have a wonderful trip. The first image is magnets with the official logo.

Does Darth Mall will be open only the days of the SWW because we are going to Hollywood Studios May 28

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 5:55 pm

@Rodolfo – That is correct. Darth’s Mall is only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday during Star Wars Weekends. You can always visit Tatoonie Traders to find other Star Wars related merchandise. That location, however, won’t have the same assortment as Darth’s Mall.

Martine from VA on May 15th, 2014 at 5:03 pm

Steven,
Please tell me that the other dress next to the one you spoke of is a Hans Solo dress? Can we get these items via the merchandise phone order? Thanks for your help!

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 8:37 pm

@Martine – Yes! It’s pretty awesome too. You may try contacting our Merchandise Guest Services team. I know they will have access to select items, yet I’m unsure if that dress is one of them. If they don’t, you may want to check out Her Universe by Ashley Eckstein. A quick internet search should help you. :)

So im assuming that Darths Mall has moved and is no longer behind rock and roller coaster??

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 8:40 pm

@Aaron – You assume correctly. We were in this space a few years ago before the tent that we used in recent years that was behind Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. It’s great to be back in this space this year. I spent last night photographing all of it. So many things! It was great to be surrounded by so much Star Wars! :)

Tracy on May 15th, 2014 at 6:32 pm

Any new Disney characters as Star Wars character plushes this year?

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 8:42 pm

@Tracy – I know there are a few different plush being offered this year. I saw Mickey Mouse in an X-Wing pilot outfit. There are also some plush that were recently introduced at Disney Stores including an incredible Bantha (it’s so fluffy! LOL).

Ethan on May 15th, 2014 at 6:53 pm

@aaron – Yes, Darth’s Mall has moved (at least for this year… not sure about it in the future). It’s located next to Toy Story Mania at Soundstage 1. The marquee says “Darth’s Mall” on it.

@Martine – Yes, it’s a Han Solo dress. It’s cute and my wife loved it! Not sure about phone orders. It’s from Her Universe (look it up on Google).

 

Steven Miller on May 15th, 2014 at 8:43 pm

@Ethan – Thank you :)

Timothy on May 15th, 2014 at 10:05 pm

I can’t wait to get in there tomorrow. I will be on one of the 1st buses from my resort headed to DHS in the morning. I usually plan my vacation round Star Wars Weekends.

Rebecca on May 16th, 2014 at 11:30 am

Could I get the merchandise number for the calendar? Thanks!

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:23 pm

@Rebecca – Here is the item number: 400008625456

John on May 16th, 2014 at 12:36 pm

Are non star wars characters out at their scheduled times during star wars weekend?

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:24 pm

@John – That’s a great question. I would recommend picking up a Times Guide when entering Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This should give you lots of details as to when things will happen on the day you visit.

Tom on May 16th, 2014 at 2:59 pm

Is there someplace online I can see what star wars art is for sale?

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:27 pm

@Tom – At this point, we do not have such an option. I’m sorry I don’t have better news.

ANTHONY from TX on May 17th, 2014 at 8:16 am

Last year or the year before I was able to order the Donald as Boba Fett statue on the phone. R we able to order the statues via phone again? If so is there a specific date we can we start?

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:29 pm

@Anthony – You can try contacting our Merchandise Guest Services team again. They may have access to such things (stressing the word “may”). Try either by telephone at 877-560-6477 or by email at Merchandise.Guest.Services@DisneyParks.com.

Thomas on May 17th, 2014 at 11:27 am

Steven,
The limited R2-D2 & R2-MK Vinylmation and the Rancor Vinylmation were sold out before the end of the first day. Will they be getting more for next weekend?
Thanks you.

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:32 pm

@Thomas – The R2-MK / R2-D2 figures are no longer available. The Rancor and Rancor Keeper set will be released starting May 30 in Darth’s Mall at Star Wars Weekends 2014. See this page on Vinylmation.com:

Anthony on May 18th, 2014 at 11:16 am

I have been trying to find this out all over the net, but cannot. Is there a large supply of the AP merch? I will be attending next friday, and really want one of those t-shirts. I hope there will still be availability!

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

@Anthony – There are shirts, a coin and a pin created for Annual Passholders. From my understanding, they should still have shirts.

Brenda from CO on May 19th, 2014 at 1:02 am

New 2014 Merchandise — Trash Can salt and pepper shakers SOLD OUT! Any chance you’ll restock? Will they be available again soon?

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2014 at 3:33 pm

@Brenda – I’m guessing you are referencing the ones that were at Disneyland Resort or on the Disney Parks online store recently. They are coming to the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace in Florida very soon. Yes, there will be additional reorders yet I do not have exact timing.

Thomas on May 21st, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Hello Steven,
This is a response to Post #12 from Anthony on May 17. I saw the Donald as Boba Fett statue available at the Walt Disney Story on Main Street at the Magic Kingdom when I was visiting on Mother’s Day!

jennifer on May 22nd, 2014 at 11:19 am

Hi there! I am heading to Disney World Monday and will be at Hollywood Studios Tuesday for a normal day and Friday for a Star Wars Day! Do you happen to know if Darth’s Mall is open on a day apart from the Star Wars Weekend events such as on this Tuesday? Thank you!! I am dying to get the new Han Solo dress from Her Universe!

 

Steven Miller on May 22nd, 2014 at 8:05 pm

@Jennifer – I hope you have a wonderful trip. Unfortunately, Darth’s Mall is only open during Star Wars Weekends. It won’t be operational on Tuesday. As for the Han Solo dress (which is amazing), you may be able to find it online. I would do an online search for “Her Universe” since it was created by Ashley Eckstein. I’m sorry I don’t have better news.

Carl on May 22nd, 2014 at 12:39 pm

Hi Steven… Do you know how much those Star Wars Weekends CALENDARS are? Hard to see from the pic. ;) Thanks!

 

Steven Miller on May 22nd, 2014 at 8:07 pm

@Carl – The retail is $12.95 plus tax.

Maria on June 1st, 2014 at 5:41 pm

Steven, do you know if the LE Star Wars Vinylmation that is being released on June 13 will be sold at Darth’s Mall? Thanks!

Renee' on June 12th, 2014 at 2:05 pm

The link above for the Disney store park events doesn’t go to Star Wars product it takes you to Donald Ducks 80th anniversary T-shirts. Is there a better location? We attended the third weekend and I’m trying to track down a storm trooper Donald Duck for my husband…and some other merchandise we were unable to get while there. We had an amazing time. This was our first Star Wars weekend trip to Disney. Thanks
