    hi panel. we are arriving may 24 - june 1st and counting the days down. has there been a release on who will be at star wars weekends and when they will be there? my 11 year old son and i love the weekends and may spend both fridays at dhs if possible.

    Hi Mike,

    A majority of our trips to Walt Disney World have been planned so that we, too, can be there for Star Wars Weekend.  And of course, we have a trip already planned for this year so that we can be there again!  

    As of today, there isn't any word on the celebrities who will be there.  I'd keep checking the above link as well as the Disney Parks Blog. I also find that often has the scoop on activities and guests as the dates grow closer.

    Just a couple of hints, make sure to arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios before it opens.  In past years, there has been a little humor with Stormtroopers as the park opens.  And always keep your eyes open at the parks; you never know who may be around the corner.  We bumped into Peter Mayhew and got to ride an attraction with him (we let him have his privacy, however, but still enjoyed being in the seat right behind him).

    And here is just a little taste of some of the special merchandise just for the event!

    May the force be with you!!
