    We are delighted to be attending the Star Wars weekend this May, and I need to find the 2013 parade time. Can you help me? Thanks.

    Hi Barbara!

    If you've not yet had the opportunity to experience the Star Wars Weekends festivities, then you're in for a real treat!  (If you're a veteran, then I have a feeling you'll experience some new surprises this year!)

    Great question about the Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade. That's an awesome parade that certainly shouldn't be missed. Unfortunately, I haven't seen a copy of the official 2013 schedule for the Star Wars Weekends.  However, I recall from prior years that the parade was held in the middle of the day (around noon or 1:00).

    Since the opening day is right around the corner, I'd recommend keeping close tabs on the Disney Parks Blog. That's my favorite source for breaking news and newly released schedules. 

    Here's a little tip from your buddy Derek:

    Make sure you plan to arrive early at Disney's Hollywood Studios on the day you're planning to attend the Star Wars Weekends festivities.  I've heard of die-hard fans arriving hours before the park's scheduled opening. However, if you plan to arrive about 30 minutes before the park opens, that should be fine.

    Here's a bonus tip from your buddy Derek:

    Keep your eyes peeled for special Star Wars merchandise and food offerings. My favorite from last year was the Darth Vader cupcake. Sweet!  (Literally!)

    I hope that helps and I hope you have an awesome time! If you should have any additional questions, please feel free to write back and I'll be happy to help in any way that I can.

    May the Force be with you!

    Best regards,
