Many costumed characters circulate throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends, presenting lots of great photo opportunities!
The merchandise location Darth’s Mall is moving to an expanded complex near Streets of America. Look for special merchandise!
CP Tip: If you plan on attending any of the Star Wars Weekends, be sure to arrive at the park early. Although the official park opening time is 9am, you will be allowed into the park around 8:30am. But, you won’t be able to get over to the Star Tours area until the official rope drop at 9am.
Many children, and even some adults, dress in Star Wars costumes for the event — this might be something to consider to add to the fun.
May the Force be with you! 🙂
Since 1997, Walt Disney World has sponsored a series of special Star Wars Weekends in the Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. Activities include celebrity appearances, as well as trivia contests and prize give-aways, Star Tours “ride-a-thons,” and a Star Wars Cantina street party, complete with a live disc jockey.
During Star Wars Weekends, celebrities from the Star Wars films and the animated series are on hand for motorcades and star conversations, as well as autograph sessions. Actors featured over the years include Jake Lloyd (young Anakin Skywalker), David Prowse (Darth Vader), Kenny Baker (R2D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Anthony Daniels (C3PO) among others. Lots of costumed characters, from Luke Skywalker and Queen Amidala to Ewoks and Jawas, can also be found milling about the park, with plenty of opportunities for Star Wars fans to meet and greet them.
The Star Wars character meals:

Star Wars decor, themed foods, and music create the intergalactic atmosphere seen nowhere in the gal

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
