With every new land opening at a major theme park that replaced a former attraction, you’re bound to find it. Somehow, somewhere, an Imagineer has placed some sort of cleverly hidden Easter egg for the public to find that pays tribute to the attraction that laid before it. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has a Galaxy’s Edge Easter egg that isn’t so obvious upon first glance.
For those unfamiliar, Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios occupies a former stunt show at the park. Lights, Motors Action! opened in March 2002 and closed in April 2016. The extremely popular show in Disney Studios Paris was cloned and tweaked for American audiences and received a mild reception at DHS during its 14-year run.
As we now know, Galaxy’s Edge also occupies the former site of the Backlot Tour as well. There is indeed a tribute to the former stunt show hidden in Batuu! Take a closer look at the middle green hoverbike in our photo above.
If you notice, there are some very specific markings on the vehicle. Let’s take a closer look.
Indeed, that is not English. This is known as the Star Wars alphabet known as Aurebesh. Not familiar? Let’s take a look at a decoder and see what this font means.

Of course, “LMA” is short for Lights, Motors Action! and it stands as a small tribute to the former stunt show that occupied the current space for Batuu. I am sure there are tons of other Galaxy’s Edge Easter eggs that we missed. Tip of the hat to @loganbenedict on Instagram for this incredible find!
