The presence of “Star Wars” at the Disney theme parks is about to get a whole lot bigger. Enhanced “Star Wars” experiences will be coming later this year to the Florida and California theme parks.

Here’s what’s new:

“Star Tours – The Adventures Continue” : The attraction will include a new adventure featuring locations and characters from the upcoming film, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“Star Wars Launch Bay”: This interactive experience will take guests into the upcoming film, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” with special exhibits and peeks behind-the-scenes, including opportunities to visit with new and favorite “Star Wars characters,” special merchandise and food offerings. Star Wars Launch Bay will be located in the Animation Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and in Tomorrowland at Disneyland park.

At Disneyland park, Star Wars Launch Bay will share the space with the reimagined Super Hero HQ, featuring opportunities to meet and take photos with super heroes like Captain America and Thor, as well as experience the returning Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries. Both experiences will be available for guests later this year.

Jedi Training Academy: The experience is being reimagined with new characters and a new villain to battle from the popular Disney XD series "Star Wars Rebels."

Season of the Force:This new seasonal event, beginning early 2016, brings new experiences to both coasts. In Tomorrowland at Disneyland park, guests will explore the “Star Wars” galaxy with special entertainment throughout the land, themed food locations and more. Guests can climb aboard Hyperspace Mountain, a reimagining of the classic Space Mountain attraction, in which guests will join an X-wing Starfighter battle.
