The LEGO Stores at Downtown Disney at Disneyland and Disney Springs at Disney World will host midnight openings for Triple Force Friday, the day that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker merchandise launches.
A tradition for new Star Wars movie is that when the merchandise launches, stores open at midnight to start selling it – as October 3 turns into October 4, the LEGO Store at Downtown Disney, Disneyland in Anaheim California and the LEGO Store at Disney Springs, Disney World in Orlando Florida will do just that. The event will provide fans with the opportunity to buy products inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and Jedi: Fallen Order
