Fans looking for that perfect Christmas gift for the Star Wars fan in their life can also purchase a Darth Vader costume for a mere $4,000.

And if you're hungry you can pick up a beverage in a BB-8-themed cup or popcorn in a Han Solo in Carbonite container.

Other updated Star Wars experiences include a new version of the Jedi Training Academy that will feature characters from The Force Awakens beginning December 18, and a sneak peek of footage called Star Wars: Path of the Jedi.

Guests taking a ride on Star Tours: The Adventure Continues will experience a new first scene featuring a visit to the planet Jakku and an appearance by BB-8. The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens scene is the first scene on every flight of Star Tours right now, while the remaining scenes will change each time.

The Star Wars Launch Bay is located in the former Magic of Disney Animation attraction. As is the case with many Disney attractions, guests will exit through a gift shop.

Construction on the new Star Wars-themed land is slated to begin in January.
