Star Wars Weekends 2013 at Disney's Hollywood Studios

By Kimberly Fidler 05/06/2013

Star Wars Weekends are coming soon to a galaxy that's not too far away!  Each Friday - Sunday from May 17 - June 9, you'll enter a whole new universe at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort with the return of Star Wars Weekends.

During Star Wars Weekends you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for over 60 Star Wars characters from all six films roaming the park. There's a good chance you'll see your favorites from Darth Vader and Darth Maul to Anakin and Chewbacca. We recommend keeping your camera handy at all times.



You'll also have the opportunity to meet celebrities from the Star Wars franchise in special autograph sessions and the return of the Legends of the Force Celebrity Motorcade and the Stars of the Saga Talk Show and Q&A. If you'd like to get a celebrity autograph, you'll want to grab a special FASTPASS ticket that guarantees you a spot in line. You'll need to get your FASTPASS before the part opens at the celebrity autograph kiosk just outside the front gate entrance.

At the end of the day you'll want to head over to the Hyperspace Hoopla! where you'll rub shoulders with Ewoks, Wookiees, Stormtroopers, Jawas and other creatures visiting from planets far, far away. This fun-filled event featuring music, comedy and dancing will be another photo-op you won't want to miss.

In addition to all of the extra Star Wars visitors and festivities, you'll still find your favorite Star Wars classics at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Jedis age 12 and under can join the Jedi Training Academy where they can practice their Lightsaber skills and participate in the Padawan Mind Challenge as they prepare to battle the evil Darth Vader. Your whole family can enjoy Star Tours - The Adventures Continue again and again with a possibility of over 50 story line combinations.

You're sure to have an out-of-this-world experience at Star Wars Weekends. Book your Walt Disney World Vacation by calling our Reservation Specialists at 855-GET-AWAY! We'd love to help you get away... far, far away!
