    Family will be at DHS for Star Wars Weekend June 7, booked the Fantasmic dinner package could we go to 9p Fantasmic and still see Symphony in the Stars or should we go to the 10:30 Fantasmic? Also what time is the motorcade? I can't seem to find the time.

    Hi Erika ~

    I can't wait to go to Star Wars Weekends (SWW) and I am soooooooooo excited to see Mark Hamill!

    Now that the first SWW is in the galactic history books, we have a lot more information to share. The Symphony in the Stars fireworks presentation is at 9:30 p.m. I think that the 9:00 p.m. Fantasmic! show would be very difficult so I would shoot for the 10:30 p.m. presentation.

    When selecting a spot to watch Symphony in the Stars, I would not stand right in front of the special SWW event stage that is set up in front of Mickey's Sorcerer Hat. While you will get a better view of the characters that come on stage just prior to the fireworks, you won't be able to see the fireworks as well. I would recommend selecting a spot along Hollywood Blvd. If you get a spot near Sunset Blvd., that will make it easier to head towards the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater for Fantasmic! following Symphony in the Stars.

    The 2014 Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade begins at 11:30 a.m. It begins near the Disney Hollywood Studios (DHS) entrance and makes its way down Hollywood Blvd. to the SWW Event Stage and is followed by a celebrity welcome. If you want a great photo op of all the celebrities for that weekend, near the stage is where you will want to be positioned.

    Be sure to pick up a special SWW Guide Map when you enter DHS to confirm times on the date of your visit.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We'll be hEAR for you up until you embark on your pixie dusted trail!

    May the force be with you :-) Allison V.
