BB-8 Meet and Greet Coming to Walt Disney World

Disney has announced that BB-8 will soon appear to make meet and greets at Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.  The first date of his appearance will be April 14, 2017.  We expect that BB-8 will move around and be available for pictures at the location.


Disney has also confirmed that Kylo Ren and Chewbacca will continue to meet and greet with guests in addition to the new BB-8 meet and greet.  We haven’t heard if there will be additional meet and greets for the upcoming Star Wars events, but we will keep you posted as we learn more.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
