Due to the high demand and popularity of Force Friday, Disney Parks Blog has announced that the event will now be for all ages and will no longer require a ticket.
Force Friday, September 4, will be a special day for Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise. Brand new Star Wars products will debut at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
The article states:
Guests who attend this midnight release party will be some of the first to find new Star Wars and Star Wars: The Force Awakens themed merchandise. In addition to items guests may find at The Disney Stores and select national retailers, we will be releasing several items found only at Disney Parks including apparel, pins, toys, retail MagicBands (Walt Disney World Resort only), Vinylmation figures, and more. Please note that purchase limits will apply.
Two merchandise locations – World of Disney Store in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort and Once Upon A Toy in Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort – will join stores around the world opening their doors at midnight for a special celebration of all things Star Wars.
In addition, on the Disneyland Resort side, a runDisney event is set to take place that morning. Guests wishing to line up are asked to do so in the Simba Parking lot. Author of article Michelle Harker states, “…we are encouraging any of our Guests who are planning to come out for the product release and who did not previously register, to queue in the Simba parking lot, as we do not want to impact any of the area in front of the store being utilized by the runner’s on Sept. 4.”
