    Hi! We will be celebrating my sons 10th Birthday at Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekend. Is there a chance of getting him picked to lead a parade or help with rope drop? What would we need to do to see if this could happen? Thank you!

    Hi Karyn,

    I feel The Force is strong in your youngling. Special "magical moments" like getting to appear in a parade or unique experiences are offered on a completely random basis. That's the most magical part of it all: you never know when or where these moments will happen!

    There's no real way to guarantee a chance to participate in these type of events. Your best bet is to arrive at the park early, and make sure your son is wearing his birthday button. I can't promise he'll get to appear in anything special, but he'll definitely get lots of "happy birthday" messages from Cast Members and guests alike.

    I hope your son enjoys his out-of-this-galaxy birthday.

    May The Force be with you,
