    This is our first time at WDW and this is basically my son's birthday gift. I wanted him to have something special. He is into the STAR WARS. What would be a good idea to do for him when we visit in two weeks?

    Hi Maribel,

    Hollywood Studios is the place to be for your son to have a Star Wars day!  Star Tours-the Adventure Continues is an attraction that is such a blast.  This is a 3D simulated attraction as guest board a Starspeeder 1000 with C-3PO an R2-D2 and can join a Tatooine podrace, go to the Ewok planet, or many other adventures while aiding the Alliance.  After this is over, you will find yourself in a store dedicated to Star Wars.  The Jedi Training Academy is something I know your son will just love as well.  You will need to sign up for him to be in this, and I would suggest doing this at park open.  All kids from ages 4 to 12 will be able to participate and will learn how to use the Force to defeat Darth Vader.  They will be taught by a Jedi Master how to use a lightsaber.  This is such a unique and fun way to spend part of your day.    I know that you will have such magical vacation.  Make sure that you stop by Guest Relations at any theme park and Downtown Disney to pick up a Happy Birthday button for your son so other guests and Cast Members can help you celebrate!
