    Hi Kim!

         My son and I went to Star Wars Weekends for the first time last year and we had an amazing time.  You do not want to miss the Storm Troopers on the roof of the Ticket Turnstile Booths.  They put on quite a show about 15 to 20 minutes before Hollywood Studios opens and they actually end up ushering you in to Star Wars Weekends.  If you get there at least 30 minutes before Hollywood Studios is scheduled to open and stand in the center of the area between where they sell Park Tickets and the turnstile machines that scan your tickets, you should be in a great spot to view this show.  If you get a reservation, then you will miss this great park pre-opening show.  I would recommend heading for the the Star Wars Characters first thing when the Park opens to get pictures and autographs. If you have time, I would also recommend the afternoon Star Wars Parade and the evening Star Wars Hyperspace Hoopla.  These are both a great place to view lots of Star Wars Characters!

    I hope that your family has a blast at Star Wars Weekends on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
