Darth's Mall at Disney's Hollywood Studios

By Nick

I recently went to Walt Disney World with 2 friends to geek out on Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World.

I was looking forward to getting some Star Wars Weekends merchandise.

The place to get said goodies is Darth's Mall. Get it? Darth's Ma...

Darth's Mall is located at the back of Disney's Hollywood Studios, next to Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show.

The signage had a trading card motif.

This year, there ware 3 stores inside the Mall! 4 if you include Tusken Fridge Raiders inside Watto's Grotto!

The Prop Shop was open on our visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios on Thursday.

Here you could find toys, tee shirts and Lego items. There were lots of great Star Wars Lego creations throughout the store.

On Friday the 15th, we got to the park half an hour early, and headed directly to the Mall upon opening. The line for X-Wing Collectibles formed very quickly, and seemed to be up to over an hour wait almost immediately.

We decided to wait till later in our visit to go in, as we were hunting for more basic items as opposed to the higher end items offered there.

Next door the wait for Watto's Grotto, which has exclusive weekend and Annual Passholder merchandise, was only 5 minutes.

That evening we returned at a little after 7 and walked right into X-Wing Collectibles.

Between the various shops, I bought several tee shirts, a mug, a pint glass, a shot glass (which they call a "toothpick holder.") and this litho of Pluto dressed as my favorite Star Wars character R2-D2.

I look forward to returning to a Star Wars Weekend next year, and can't wait to see what new merchandise they'll have based on future Star Wars installments!
