    Going to HS for the first time with a 6&4 yr old boys who are into Star Wars. Will be there 5/21-27. Where do we start? What time is the parade?

    Hi there Veronica!

    Your boys won't know what and where to look when they enter the park! There will be Star Wars characters and items everywhere. The parade usually takes place in the morning and it's very popular! Anytime you mix Star Wars and Disney, there will be tons of fans! The only mention that I have seen so far about Star Wars Weekend has been here in the Disney Blog. As you can see, they haven't finalized most of the schedules yet. I'm sure that they will be updating the Star Wars Weekend Webpage once show times and Stars are confirmed. Most of the Star Wars characters will be in the Star Tours area but they can move around to different parts of the park.

    If your sons would like to become Padawans then sign him up for Jedi Training Academy (JTA) at Hollywood Studios (HS) it's definitely a must do!!! You need to get to the park when (before) it opens to sign your sons up at the JTA stage for one of the shows during the day. He must be present to be able to sign up to take part in the JTA.

    As always, make sure to check the regular Times Guide and special Star Wars Times Guide at Hollywood Studios for character appearance locations, parade, and show times. If you cannot find the character or actor you are searching for, go by Guest Services and ask a cast member if they can call the "Character Hotline". Hopefully, they will let you know where they might be located. I hope you and your family have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel! May the Force be with you!
