Fans of the Star Wars universe don’t have to travel to “a galaxy far, far away” to come face to face with droids, alien creatures and many of their favorite Star Wars characters.
Younglings can hone their lightsaber skills and prepare to do battle with Darth Vader himself at the Jedi Training Academy. Prove yourself the master of trivia in contests with prize giveaways. Board a runaway Starspeeder on the Star Tours attraction, or stare in awe as visitors from Naboo, Endor and every planet between pass by in a motorcade.
In addition to all of the entertainment, there are plenty of conversations, autograph sessions and motorcades with the celebrities and creators of the Star Wars galaxy.
Hunting for a special collectible bounty? Grab a Disney’s FASTPASS ticket to ensure your place in line for celebrity autographs, or find special limited-edition merchandise to add to your collection at the Tatooine Traders store and other vendors around the Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.
Each day ends with the Hyperspace Hoopla! show, where many favorites let loose with music, comedy, dancing and more.
With Ewoks, Wookiees, Stormtroopers, Jawas and more invading Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, young Padawan Learners and their parents would be wise to have their cameras ready. Star Wars Weekends take place only once a year, so check back for the next event dates and plan your trip early. Do. Or do not. There is no try!
