Light Side or Dark Side of the Force? It’s Time to Choose Your Destiny!

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Lyssa Hurvitz

Following the epic conclusion of the new limited series “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, streaming now only on Disney+, fans can choose their own Star Wars destiny and decide if they will follow the ways of the Jedi and the light side, or harness the power of the dark side of the Force like the Sith. Fans can visit the official Choose Your Destiny page to explore exciting new products from around the galaxy to help make their choice.

The time to choose which path you will follow has never been better, as fans can also enter the Choose Your Destiny Sweepstakes, where one lucky fan could win the chance to live out their own Star Wars adventure aboard the NEW Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser and build their own custom Lightsaber collectible at Savi’s Workshop inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during a 6-day/5-night vacation at Walt Disney World Resort!

What better way to show which path you’ll follow than with your own Lightsaber toys and collectibles?
