    We love Star Wars and Indiana Jones so Star Tours and the Indiana Jones stunt show are some must-do’s for us. Do these attractions have their own gift shops? Are there any opportunities to take photos with Star Wars or Indy characters?

    My family enjoys both of these attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular offers stunts that you'll recognize from Raiders of the Lost Ark scenes. After watching Indy and Marion showing off their impressive stunts, you'll find related merchandise nearby. In an Indy truck, some merchandise is sold. The larger, Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost, offers a small indoor shop which carries movie memorabilia and Indy clothing.

    Do not rush through the queue of Star Tours. The details are amazing! You'll want to stop and After your adventurous ride to Endor, you'll exit Star Tours directly into Tatooine Traders. If your head's not still spinning from the dizzying light speed ride piloed by the droid Rex, you'll have fun exploring the Star Wars merchandise!

    After shopping, have your picture taken on the speeder bike at the photo op across from Tatooine Traders.

    The best time of year to get photos with Star Wars characters is during Star Wars Weekends. Our family attended this past June and were amazed to have photos taken with Storm Troopers, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker, Ewoks, Darth Vader and more.

    Once during a non-SWW visit, we did run into a Storm Trooper in front of Star Tours. This is not common, however. You may want to visit the Star Tours area before and after Jedi Training Academy shows (check your Times Guide) for possible opportunities to meet characters. At the very least, you'll enjoy the show which offers light saber battles with Darth Vader!
