Now, I have even more details to share with you! As was revealed on the DisneyParks Blog today, guests can expect immersive entertainment throughout the special day. Check out these intergalactic highlights that were posted on the DisneyParks Blog: (Excerpt from the DisneyParks Blog post of February 16, 2015).
