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

Fantha Tracks shares the news from the Disney Parks Blog, confirming that the stores will open at midnight on October 4 for Triple Force Friday, with Star Wars themed refreshments and a Master Build Event focused on the Millennium Falcon.

A livestream is taking place tomorrow to promote the new products.

Here is the official word from the blog:

You can join in the conversation on social using Triple #ForceFriday and at in-store retail celebrations around the globe when products set on Oct. 4. Fans in Orlando and Anaheim will be able to experience Oct. 4 midnight shopping at World of Disney at Disney Springs and Downtown Disney. Disney Springs will also feature midnight shopping at the LEGO Store, along with Star Wars-themed food and beverage offerings and a LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Master Build Event.
