Disney Parks Blog Weekly Recap – Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run Added to FastPass+ Service at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Sneak Peek of ‘Magic Happens’ Parade Coming to Disneyland Park & More
From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Thomas Smith
This week, Disney Parks Blog readers were among the first to learn that FastPass+ reservations for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are available in the My Disney Experience app – for guests planning to visit on or after Feb. 19.
As many of you know, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run combines immersive storytelling with interactive gameplay and makes you the protagonist of your own Star Wars adventure! When it’s time for the mission to begin, you’ll be assigned one of three critical roles: Pilots, Gunners and Flight Engineers. It’s up to you and your fellow passengers to smuggle goods while avoiding any unnecessary entanglements.
Check out the original Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run story for more details.
We also shared a brand-new sneak peek video of “Magic Happens,” the all-new daytime parade coming to Disneyland park on Feb. 28.
“Magic Happens” celebrates moments of magic from Disney and Pixar stories, which will be brought to life on a grand scale with stunning floats, artistic costumes and imaginative music co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall. The parade features distinct stories with a mix of characters, making it feel contemporary and classic, fun and regal, and surprising and familiar – all at the same time.
