    I am a huge nerd for Star Wars & have been looking into the Star Wars attractions. The one thing I must do, is meet Master Anakin. I see there is an 'Encounter w Darth Vader'. Is this an actual one on one meet and greet?


    I just intercepted this transmission between the Super Star Destroyer, Executor, and Darth Vader’s Lambda Class transport the Imperial Shuttle.

    “Admiral Piett, we have the exact location of Star Wars Launch Bay located on the third planet in the Solar System within the Outer Rim territories. Imperial probe droids have discovered unusual activity on this remote planet. Send an elite squadron of First Order Stormtroopers ahead to prepare for my arrival. We shall establish a base equipped with memorabilia and weaponry from Jedis, the Rebel Alliance and Imperial Forces. I will recruit new members for our battle accepting only the most impressive candidates. Exact coordinates show the ideal site at Disney’s Hollywood Studios specifically in Animation Courtyard. New recruits will meet me personally and will be allowed to take pictures for this day that will be long remembered. Do not underestimate the wait times (at times around 45 minutes) and plan wisely.

    I expect Rebel Spies to try and infiltrate Star Tours-The Adventures Continue. I will be there to trap and battle them in Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. If the troops need help, perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them by celebrating with a fantastic evening show called Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular.

    Admiral, see to it all arrangements are in order.”

    Disney Dad Tip: For Star Wars Disney Visa Card holders there is a special Darth Vader meet and greet from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. You must have the card present to participate.

    Erica, may the Force be with you.
