This year’s Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios had its ups and downs for my wife and I this year. One event we look forward to every year is the Hyperspace Hoopla, a Star Wars themed dance party, that involves characters from the entire Star Wars Universe competing in an intergalactic dance-off with a few funny skits and choreographed numbers.
This year’s version did not disappoint. The whole production value of the show was increased with the move from the Jedi Academy stage to the “Disney Channel Rocks” stage in front of the Sorcerer’s Hat. With the larger stage, multi-layered staging, arena lighting, LED screens and immense sound reinforcement the Hoopla was bigger and better than anything they have ever produced.
Quick Tip: Should you get a chance to check out the show get there at least 30 minutes early to ensure a nice spot toward the front of the stage. Most people line up during the “Disney Channel Rocks” show in order to get in spaces closest to the stage. Be sure to check your event/times guide for showtimes.
VERDICT: Must see! Be sure to check out this show that will leave your entire family singing and dancing… and perhaps twirling Lightsabers all the way back to your home resort!
