The Mature Mouse™ was registered with WordPress on November 10, 2014. My first post was made on November 30, 2014. I would like to thank each and every one of you that have continued to follow my Disney musings.
The Mature Mouse™ is not only a fan of all things Disney, especially the parks, but I am also a Star Wars nerd. Episode 4: A New Hope, from the original trilogy, has become a part of my instructional material when teaching freshmen about the archetype of the hero journey. I am very excited about the new Star Wars land coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios (name change yet to be announced). Until this new experience opens, DHS offers a taste of Star Wars through the various special events, including the new fireworks, and the Star Wars Launch Bay.
This is a description of the Launch Bay from the Disney World website:
Explore immersive special exhibits and get a peek behind the scenes of the new movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Discover sights, sounds and surprises that are sure to delight any Star Wars fan.

The Mature Mouse™ entered nerd nirvana touring the Star Wars Launch Bay during my last solo trip to Walt Disney World. I was able to view a galaxy of Star Wars memorabilia (see what I did there). My attempt to trade with a Jawa failed; he (she?) was just not interested in what I had to offer in trade. I finally gave the character one my cast-member “Thank You” cards. These creatures are well trained to marvelously interact with the guests. And, the highlight of my tour of the Star Wars Launch Bay was meeting a very special Wookie named Chewbacca. Here is a tip for avoiding lines at meet and greets in the Star Wars Launch Bay: go during the fireworks or Fantasmic.
