BB-8, the loyal droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has just begun greeting guests at the park’s Star Wars Launch Bay.

BB-8 appears in addition to Kylo Ren and Chewbacca, two characters from the Star Wars galaxy who guests regularly encounter at Star Wars Launch Bay. In addition to character greetings, the location also offers guests the chance to explore galleries full of treasured memorabilia and authentic replicas of large-scale Star Wars artifacts, including some from the latest film in the franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Check out the video above for a look at his first day at the park.


  • Are there any plans in the works for this to have a fast pass option?

  • When will BB-8 be greeting guests in the Launch bay at Disneyland?

  • Will BB-8 be meeting guests all summer long?

  • Any chance BB-8 will be at Disneyland this summer? We’ll be there in August and would love to meet him!
