    Hi Moms & Dads! We are coming for our first Star Wars Weekend and so excited! How do I sign my son up for Padawan Mind Challenge? Where is the best spot to view the SWW parade? Does Fantasmic still show after Hyper.Hoopla? Thanks in advance! Love you

    Hi Kirsten,

    Star Wars Weekends has always been a part of our summer travels to Walt Disney World; we love all the activities and special attractions! I'm so excited that you'll be experiencing it as well!

    The Padawan Mind Challenge registrations begins at the Event Information Table near ABC Sound Studio at the park opening.  When you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios, make sure to grab a copy of the Star Wars Weekend Guide Map to confirm the times/locations since there is always the possibility of changes. 

    The Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade is currently scheduled for 12:40 pm, so I'm partial to finding a location with shade! We like to view the motorcade around the area of the Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant.

    The Hyperspace Hoopla is at 8:00 pm, and it looks like Fantasmic! is at 9:00 pm and 10:30 pm during Star Wars Weekends. If your young Padawans are part night-owls, you may find the later showing less crowded. 

    Meanwhile if you'd like to read more about this special event, the Disney Parks Blog is filled with lots of helpful information.  Did you know you can have your likeness frozen into Carbonite?

    May the force be with you!
