Possible Opening Timeframe for Star Wars Launch Bay at Disneyland


hyperspace-mountain-disneyland-star-warsThe addition of Star Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland has been one of the bigger Star Wars theme park rumors over the summer, and it was confirmed this weekend at D23 Expo.

While a November opening has been rumored ever since word leaked out about the attraction, we may get to see it a little earlier than that. Disney’s official audition site for finding Cast Members for attractions such as this has posted a notice that they’ll be casting people 6’1″ or taller for the attraction starting on the 29th of this month.

These people will need to start work on October 11th:

  • Performers must be at least 18 years of age or a high school graduate
  • Wear non-restrictive clothing; tennis or dance shoes are required
  • Current Disneyland® Resort Cast Members should bring a completed and approved transfer application
  • Must be available to work starting October 11, 2015

As there are usually a couple weeks of training for new Cast Members in an attraction such as this it’s possible we’ll start to see Annual Passholder previews of the new Innoventions area as early as the last week of October before opening for all park guests in early November.
