    I am confused as to what is / is not taking place with regards to Star Wars. We are at Universal on Sat 5th June. Is the Fireworks to Star Wars music on? are the Star Wars parades on? there is a lot of conflicting information out there.

    Hey, Alexandra!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The intergalactic Star Wars entertainment and food this summer are worth making the jump to light speed.

    Awaken Summer at Walt Disney World Resort helps you feel, hear and see the Force. When you arrive in your Resistance transport at Disney's Hollywood Studios you will enjoy parades, fireworks, food and even meet characters from both the Resistance and the First Order.

    During the day, witness The March or the First Order patrols lead by Captain Phasma. They will begin near Star Wars Launch Bay where inside Chewbacca and Kylo Ren greet Guests. Units will also patrol randomly so be prepared. Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show lets you experience characters from all the Star Wars movies. Even BB-8 shows up for this event. Blast off on an accidental mission with C-3PO during Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. Your Starspeeder 1000 has over 96 combination adventures to enjoy meaning each time could be a different experience. Don't forget to pick up a lightsaber or custom astromesh droid figure at Tatooine Traders. If you have a youngling between the ages of 4-12, sign up for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. They will learn the ways of the force and fight the Dark Side.

    Disney Dad Tip: June will be a split month with either Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular or Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular fireworks showcase. Fireworks, movies scenes and Star Wars music combine to make both of these events unforgettable. Do not miss this event. 

    Alexandra, enjoy making Magical Memories!
