Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become a global phenomenon, and soon guests at Disney Parks will be able to interact with one of the film’s most intriguing new characters, Kylo Ren.

Every day at Disney Parks, you can step into exciting Star Wars experiences such as Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, “Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple” and Star Wars Launch Bay, where you can come face to face with some of the greatest heroes and villains of the saga. Soon, a visit to Star Wars Launch Bay at either Disneyland park or Disney’s Hollywood Studios will transport you to the Star Wars galaxy for an encounter with Kylo Ren on the bridge of his First Order Star Destroyer.

As seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren is a dark warrior with a mysterious past. Ren is strong with the Force and serves as a leader of the First Order, seeking to destroy the New Republic, the Resistance and the legacy of the Jedi.

Star Wars Launch Bay was designed to showcase a variety of Star Wars characters over time. In addition to Kylo Ren, you may also come across a garrison of First Order Stormtroopers or the heroic Wookiee, Chewbacca, holed up in a secret Resistance base.

The portal from Star Wars Launch Bay to Kylo Ren’s Star Destroyer opens at Disneyland park and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios next month.


  • When will Kylo Ren be at the launch bay until?

  • Is there no Jedi Training the week of March 12, 2016?

  • What’s up with no meet and greet with Rey or BB8 or Finn? Seriously, why Kylo Ren?

  • I see Vader’s schedule ends Saturday, is Sunday the first day for Kylo Ren at DHS.

  • I haven’t seen anything about Rey. Any plans on having her around?

  • so does this mean that VADER will be no longer available for photographs and auotographs

  • My family and I will be in Hollywood Studios on Feb. 1st. Do we have an exact date yet as to when he will be available to see? I am a die-hard Star Wars fan and part of the 501st Legion and would LOVE to see him when we’re down there!! I’m currently working on having Kylo be my next costume for the 501st so I would love to see an up-close and in-person look! Hopefully it starts the day that my family and I are there!! 😀
