Star Wars Weekend Overview

Welcome to those of you joining me from DISTherapy and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

I will be the first one to admit that I am not much of a Star Wars fan girl.  I haven’t watched the movies (maybe like one a long long time ago), I don’t know the characters names and quite frankly I don’t really get it.  I do, however, love riding Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  That’s largely due to the fact that my 6 year old little shorty girl absolutely loves it and it is one of the big rides that she doesn’t get too scared on! But I know there are many many people that LOVE Star Wars.  So many in fact Disney takes 4 weekends of the year and hosts a celebration in honor of the force.  (Was that the right useage of “the force”…oh I don’t know)

The Star Wars Weekends are a type of festival put on by Walt Disney World.  This year the festivity dates are May 17-19, May 24-26, May 31-June 2, June 7-9 2013 all at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  To participate in the festivities all you need is a park ticket!
There are several special fun events going on during the Star Wars Weekends
  • Celebrity Autographs – *IMPORTANT* you MUST have a fastpass to receive a celebrity autograph.  A limited number of fastpasses are available, so your best bet is to arrive to Disney’s Hollywood Studios Early!   One autograph per person.
  • Disney Characters will be dressed in Costume.  This is a great oportunity to get some unique shots with the characters.
  • Special Parade features stars from the movies.
  • Jedi Training Academy – this is a fun show that is really interactive with the kids!
  • Hyperspace Hoopla – music, comedy and dancing at the end of each day.
I think the activities they have going on sound like a lot of fun!  Even if you don’t love Star Wars I think it will still be a fun time inside the Park!  I love how there are always different events going on at Walt Disney World. If you have any suggestions about what to do during the Star Wars weekends  please feel free to leave them in the comments below!
