    How come last time I went to Disney , it said it was like a Star Wars weekend but I didn't see like Darth Vader , and other characters ? I was looking for it all day .

    Hi Joey!

    Star Wars Weekend is a special event that takes place in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  It typically takes place on 4 weekends in late May  or early June.  It only takes place in Disney's Hollywood Studios and only on the weekends, so if you were in the Studios on a weekday or in another park on the weekend then you wouldn't have seen anything.

    Star Wars Weekends are a lot of fun for Star Wars fan.  There is a special parade, shows, and special character meet and greets throughout the Studios!  There are even guest celebrities that you can meet, listen to, and get autographs from.

    If you have a Star Wars fan in your party, but you can't be there for Star Wars Weekend, you can still go on Star Tours - The Adventure Continues.  That is one of my favorite attractions in all of Walt Disney World.  It's a 3D motion simulator ride through parts of the Star Wars universe!

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
