    Hello my family and I are going to Disney World this summer! We are super excited, especially my youngest! He is a huge fan of Star Wars... my question is is Darth Vader available for photo ops?

    Hey, Rachel and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are going to have an amazing summer filled with Mickey and of course Star Wars.

    Star Wars experiences at Disney's Hollywood Studios are spectacular. From Star Tours - The Adventures Continue to Star Wars Launch Bay, younglings and Jedi Masters alike will have plenty of thrills, characters viewings, and delicious specialty foods. However, I sense a disturbance in the Force. Darth Vader no longer meets intergalactic travelers loyal to the Empire. He has been replaced by his grandson, Kylo Ren, who interviews recruits at Star Wars Launch Bay. Do not underestimate his power as his First Order troopers march down Hollywood Boulevard toward Center Stage. On the other side of Star Wars Launch Bay, you should meet the Resistance heroes BB-8 and Chewbacca.

    Disney Dad Tip: Two of the most spectacular Star Wars experiences are the Star Wars Guided Tour and Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. Darth Vader is known to challenge padawans during Jedi training and the best opportunity to video/photo your son battling the Dark Lord of the Sith. This battle is one of my most favorite memories of my sons when they were seven years old.

    Rachel, enjoy making many Magical Memories.`
