Two shops closing in Downtown Disney to make room for Star Wars experience
Two shops in the Downtown Disney area of the Disneyland Resort will be closing to make room for the new virtual reality experience based on the Star Wars movies.
The two shops, according to a Disneyland Resort official, are Disney Vault 28 and Fossil. The shops will close by the end of September 2017 to make way for the new experience. The announcement of the new experience was made earlier in August, but a location had not been finalized.
The experience is called Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire. It is slated to open in time for the 2017 holiday season.
It is being produced through a partnership between Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment arm ILMxLAB and virtual reality creators, The Void, and is intended to “plunge fans into the Star Wars universe.”
In March, Knott’s Berry Farm opened its own VR Experience, “VR Showdown in Ghost Town.” It lets players defend its Ghost Town against ghostly villains.
