    Do you need a special ticket for the Star Wars weekend? We are new annual pass members and plan to attend in May. My son chose this over coming for his birthday. What kind of activities can we expect?

    Hi Debra!

    My boys are huge Star Wars fans and really enjoy attending Star Wars Weekends!  I am happy to report that Guests do not need a special event ticket to attend Star Wars Weekends. You will simply need regular theme park admission to Disney's Hollywood Studios, so your Walt Disney World Annual Pass should be all that you need to experience this intergalactic event. 

    From the moment you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios, you will feel transported to a galaxy far, far away. There are Star Wars celebrities featured on each weekend and famous Star Wars Characters like Darth Vader and Chewbacca available for photos and autographs. There is also a huge merchandise location unique to Star Wars Weekends with themed and limited edition merchandise. Our favorite activities include: "Legends of the Force" Motorcade and Celebrity Welcome, in which we have seen Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Ewoks, Stormtroopers, Jedi Mickey plus more, Star Wars Character Encounters, Jedi Training Academy, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue and the finale celebration. After entering Disney's Hollywood Studios, be sure to pick up a Star Wars Weekends Guide Map for a list of all show times, character experience locations and other special events happening around the park. I would also recommend arriving to the park early. During one visit, we purchased a themed poster unique to Star Wars Weekends and had several of the characters sign it. We were celebrating my son's birthday during that particular trip, so the autographed poster was a special birthday souvenir to take home. Follow this link to learn more about Star Wars Weekends

    I hope this information helps. Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Debra!

    May the Force be with you,
