Star Wars Weekends now underway at Disney World Galaxy
Disney Vacation Guide: Star Wars Weekends return to Disney World
For a select few weekends out of the year, something very special takes place in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. It’s not every day that you see light sabre lessons taking place in Central Florida let alone wookiees and droids wandering around in mid-day.
During Star Wars Weekends, Disney celebrates the science fiction fantasyland created by the brilliant mind of George Lucas. Not only is the Star Wars film saga celebrated, but the hit animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars is part of the fun too.
This year, Star Wars Weekends happen every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 18 through June 10.
Meet and Greet Opportunities
May the Force be with you as 60 or so Star Wars characters take to the streets of Hollywood Studios in Disney World. You’ll see droids, Rodians, Wookiees, Ewoks, bounty hunters and, of course, Jedi. See how many you can get your photo taken with!
