It’s the month of Star Wars (you know…May the Fourth, Revenge of the Fifth), so to celebrate, there will a a great limited-time offering at Disney Springs! Meta Quest, ILMxLAB – Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment studio – and Disney Parks will be bringing the Meta Quest 2 preview of Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge to Disney Springs. It will be found on the West Side from May 2 through July 21.
About the Experience
The hands-on preview will showcase a short version of the virtual reality experience Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. This experience expands the world of Batuu like never before! Once inside the Quest 2 headset, Guests will see 360 views of the Star Wars galaxy. The adventure takes place on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu.
The story features both new and iconic characters from the Star Wars galaxy. In Part 1 of this action-adventure experience, Guests will take on the role of a droid repair technician operating near the Outer Rim. When a group of pirates attack and you crash on Batuu, you’ll discover that anyone can become a hero. Then, continue your journey with Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge-Last Call. This is the recently-released expansion. This new add-on gives you the opportunity to expand your virtual reality adventures on the Outer Rim and experience more eras in the Star Wars galaxy.
Those who complete the experience will receive giveaways. They will also have the ability to purchase a Meta Quest 2 onsite. Those who attend on May 4 can receive an exclusive poster featuring the Guavian Death Gang cell operating on Batuu and their merciless leader, Tara Rashin.
This complimentary preview experience will be offered daily, noon – 10 p.m. Reservations may be available. A Meta Quest staff member will assist you on-site with reserving a time to come back to participate or direct you to queue inside the building, based on availability.
