    Is there a way to get help from Star Wars characters at Hollywood studios with a gender reveal?

    Welcome to planDisney, Belinda, and let me offer you a pixie-dusted CONGRATULATIONS on expanding your family. How exciting that you'll be adding a new little Princess or Prince to the resistance. 

    I'm a firm believer that there is no better place to celebrate than Walt Disney World, so I'm happy to chat with you about revealing some very special news in the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    While you aren't able to book characters for events such as a gender reveal, I do have an idea that might work. Inside Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Star Wars Launch Bay, you can meet Darth Vader, BB8 and, my personal favorite, Chewbacca. During this meet and greet, you could pose for a photo indicating the gender of your new little rebel to share with family and friends. While Darth Vader may act less than thrilled, I'm sure my favorite Wookiee will howl with excitement. Just remember that this meet and greet is open to all guests and not a private opportunity, so you likely will need to wait in line for a few minutes and will only have a short visit with these characters.

    Belinda, I hope this helps as you're planning ahead. Make sure to also stop by Guest Services inside the park or the front desk at your Disney Resort Hotel for complimentary celebration buttons. You can personalize these to share that you'll soon be welcoming a young Luke or Leia!

    If you have any additional questions, just grab a pod racer and come on back to Batuu.  Oops! ER- I mean, come on back to planDisney. 

    May The Force Be With You,
