It has been a long wait for Walt Disney World guests, but the Mandalorian and Grogu have arrived at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Coinciding with the launch of the highly anticipated third season of the Mandalorian on Disney+ March 1, the show's two stars are meeting guests today in Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

Disney has said that the Mandalorian and Gorge appearances will become part of daily operations at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Mando and Grogu made their theme park debut at Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland in November 2022, after being announced by the show's creator Jon Favreau at D23 Expo last September.

Guests at Disneyland Paris can also meet the duo from March 1 until the 14th, 2023.

In the third season, the journeys of the Mandalorian through the Star Wars galaxy continue. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu. Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from its dark history. The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.

The series stars Pedro Pascal, Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, Emily Swallow and Giancarlo Esposito.

To hell with “immersion”… The land is non-commital on terrible source material Da hell does that matter now?

Or just have both at the same time. It wouldn't break the immersion if Mando is out & about in GE & then having a Meet and Greet on the other side of the park lol

For a moment, I thought that that was his Tindr page.

Not sure when this was added, but I think it is a recent addition - The Mandalorian appearance times are now available in My Disney Experience.

11:30 ish I left to go do rides but swung back around 12:06 just to take a look. It was completely empty, so he must have been out again and had just left. So maybe 11:30 but he was a bit late coming out, or 11:45.

Sadly I think the key is to wait by where he comes out to get a good picture or video of them. We got some excellent pictures of them solo then one with my wife who politely asked and he posed, but then we ran off. It was very packed. And Saturday was relatively slow at the park, so I can't imagine a super busy day. Rise was a posted 70min wait and it was basically walk on. Not sure about Falcon since we didn't do it but either it was a slow day or 90% of the people in GE were just waiting for Grogu lol

He stayed out from 10:15 to 10:30. I checked back in 15 minute intervals and as of 11:30, he hasn't come back out. Lots of people hanging out in the area.

I can confirm that he did come out today at 10:15. Trying to get a photo is a nightmare. I love to see the characters roaming, but I wish there was a better and more orderly way to do pictures. Maybe have him roaming during the day and then have a proper Meet and Greet in Launch Bay at night.

They are cheap? Paris has like every costume available, Disneyland seems to have something new all the time esp for their special events, disney world doesnt seem to ever get nearly as many. I dont know how much the costumes are shared between sites, I figured it was more a capex and each park spent what they wanted on costumes (well the board that dictates for all parks), and WDW doesnt prioritize costumes.

Or a Mandalorian $59 breakfast at Sci-Fi Dine, where you meet Mando and Grogu in the lobby and then enjoy clips of the latest episode….presented by Disney+.

How long until this is canceled due to crowds or moved to the launch bay with lightning lane only access?

MisterPenguinMar 06, 2023

The cost of damages will surely redound upon the perpetrator.

JoeCamelMar 06, 2023

Yeah but I want to know who renounced him and are they insured?

MisterPenguinMar 06, 2023

I think they meant 'renowned.'
