PHOTOS: More Theming Elements Added to Star Wars Trading Post at Disneyland Resort

The new Star Wars Trading Post continues to take shape at the Disneyland Resort. The new Star Wars store is taking over the old Rainforest Cafe building at Downtown Disney District.

Recently, we noticed some greenery, netting, and wires added to the galactic merchandise store. Today, we noticed even more theming elements have been added since our last visit.

We have some new cases, crates, and barrels placed outside the entrance. The sign still remains covered.


These elements add to the character and theming of the “Resistance Base.”


The theming extends beyond the store and along the exterior pathway.


More theming has been staged on the other side of the building as well.


The scheduled opening date for the new Star Wars Trading Post is February 19.

We also recently saw the building lit up for the first time at night.

Initially, I thought this was a cool idea, especially if they were not going to reopen the cafe. Now though, it just looks cheap and silly.
