Do you have what it takes to stop the Empire?
Disney Floral & Gifts, in partnership with Lucasfilm, is happy to announce the launch of a new gift package: Star Wars Rebels Interactive Adventure. For those brave enough to answer the call for this mission, an adventure awaits. To help you get started, below are 4 mission details you’ll need to know to thwart the Empire!
Top Secret Mission Detail #1: The Mission
The Star Wars Rebels Interactive Adventure takes you from your resort room “barracks” on an interactive role-playing mission to the Star Tours Attraction. You’ll go “under cover” as an Imperial Security Officer, complete with rank bar, cap, satchel, and diversion tattoos. The Empire is always watching, so make sure they don’t identify you as the Rebel Spy!
Top Secret Mission Detail #2: The Tech
The adventure features unique technology exclusive to this experience. Through an augmented reality feature with the Star Wars app on your smartphone, Ezra Bridger leads you on a mission to thwart the Empire. By scanning targets or “wayfinders” featured around your resort room and Star Tours, Ezra leads you to hidden information and gear needed to complete your mission.
The rebel tech on your phone allows you to experience the adventure again and again, even after returning home from the Disney Parks!
Top Secret Mission Detail #3: The Gear
With equipment to help on your adventure, the mission includes a disguise and your data card to transmit information to the rebels at Star Tours. Other collectibles include a Jedi holocron, lightsaber, Rebel journal, 4 Empire recruitment posters, and an Empire door banner.
Have multiple rebels in your party? You can add-on elements of this adventure for everyone to experience!
Top Secret Mission Detail #4: The Reward
Once you’ve completed your mission, you’ll be rewarded like any true hero with a Medal of Bravery. Presented in a rebel lock box wrapped with a Phoenix symbol, this medal can only be recovered upon completion of your mission. Like the one seen in the film Star Wars: A New Hope, the medal’s design features a lanyard, which can be personalized, to identify your victory.
Are you brave enough to answer the call and thwart the Empire’s efforts? Then enlist today by visiting the Disney Floral and Gifts at Walt Disney World, (407-WDW-GIFT) or Disney Floral and Gifts at Disneyland (714-781-GIFT). Delivery to Disney resorts begins August 15th.
I was so excited when I heard about this because it sounded like something my Star Wars loving boys would love. Then I saw the price. What!?
I was really looking forward to this. But at $650 for both of my kids to play this, it’s not worth the cost. For significantly less than that, all four of us are doing the family magic tour, the Star Wars dessert party, and the kids are doing the Pirate Cruise. I would not have had a problem paying up to $200/kid, but $325 each is a bit much.
Or a bare bones version of the package with the journal and ID tag so you can play the game. My kids really aren’t interested in the stuff part of the package.
If you let us have a way to purchase the “This is the App You’re Looking For” poster separate from the set so that we could do the augmented reality app without all the costume parts, I might want that. Otherwise I’d need to purchase $640 with the additional child add on.
This new Rebel Adventure is a role-play mission that starts in your resort room and continues at the Star Tours attraction vs a game so to speak. In other words, the experience on your smart phone wont make sense w/out the gear and reward. Also, you don’t have to purchase the entire disguise for all Rebels in your family. If you purchase the adventure, you could add on an extra medal and even have it personalized in English or Aurebesh.
The experience sounds amazing, but the price point is just too much! I would buy this without hesitation even at $250, but $500 is more than the cost of a night’s stay at a moderate resort!
I have to agree with the rest of the posters that the price does seem steep from a value proposition perspective (especially for adults who want to participate and may not want all of the toys), although I do appreciate the hard work the floral and gifts team puts into creating the in-room celebration stories. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the holidays, Jean!
When I’d first heard this was coming last May I was hoping for something along the lines of Wilderness Explorers (at Animal Kingdom), Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom or Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure (at Epcot).
Is it possible to play the interactive app portion of the game without purchasing the package?
Good question. The app/augmented reality calls out the mission and the merchandise included is part of the experience and ultimately the reward. IE..There’s a disguise, mission brief, additional gear, keepsakes etc, some of which haven’t been created before…. If you’d like to see what’s included, view the bottom portion of the product page in a section called, “Magic in the Details”. This may offer more insight. But to answer your question, the app isn’t being sold separately because the gear is part of the experience.
Thanks for the insight. To help, I wanted to share there are a few options to choose from in addition to this experience. Also available is our Star Wars Intergalactic Adventure at WDW and DLR. And, if you’d enjoy creating your own Star Wars gift at a specific price point, you can do so on our Custom Gift Builder tab to include some Star Wars as well as Disney merchandise and snacks. Hope this helps. 🙂
This is way to expensive! We will pass on this one…
I have to agree with others here. $500 is pretty steep and really doesn’t seem worth it.
Wow, really?? Was about to send the link to my son until I saw the price tag. Ouch!
I was completely ready for this until I saw the price tag. For $500, that medal better be real gold.
So $500 for a few toys and a medal? What a deal, I can’t wait to play this on my upcoming trip!!!
