Don't let this secret out. We got there and it was pretty quiet. Had a blast. I could stay there for hours. Great photo opportunities.

Totally awesome if you are a Star Wars fan! If you have the Disney Visa, this is where your meet and greet is.

Lots of cool movie props. Meeting Chewie was the best character interaction from our recent trip. Well worth the wait if you are a Star Wars fan.

Behind-the-Scenes movie was cool - but once is enough. The Disney Visa character meet and greet here is fun and definitely worth it if you have a star wars fan in your group (photos show up in your photopass too). We couldn't bring ourselves to wait over an hour to meet Kylo or Chewie...

Launch Bay is interesting - and it is fun to meet the Star Wars characters, but you need to do it when the lines are short. One of the best parts of our visit was the Star Wars-related banter of one of the cast members in the queuing area!
