    Plan our first visit in december 9-10-11! Staying at Four Seasons. My sons (5-7) are big fans of Stars Wars and it seems that nothing will be available for them related to SW at that time. Do you have any clue on caracters experiences we should attend?

    Hi Karine and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. How exciting that you are planning your first visit to Walt Disney World! 

    While it’s true that the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular show will be replaced with Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! during your visit, there are plenty of other out-of-this-world Star Wars experiences for your young padawans to enjoy. I wouldn’t worry too much about the times for some of these experiences not showing up on the web pages yet; often they will show up as you get within 60 days of your trip. If you get closer and still don’t see what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to contact a Walt Disney World Cast Member for assistance with planning, or come back and see us here on the Moms Panel.

    Be sure to begin your day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios by signing up for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. Your younglings will love learning the ways of the Force and practicing their Jedi skills while battling Star Wars villains. To get the best times for Jedi Training, head straight to the sign-ups when the park opens, and be sure to bring your young Jedis with you, as you can’t sign up without them. (Fun tip: Backlot Express restaurant is located right beside the Jedi Training stage, and offers some fun Star Wars-themed food, including a yummy Darth Vader cupcake.)

    Star Wars Launch Bay is filled with Star Wars memorabilia, a short film, and character experiences. You can meet Chewbacca (who gives the best Wookiee hugs), BB-8, and Kylo Ren inside, and you may also encounter some Stormtroopers making their rounds. I know your boys will have so much fun exploring all the Star Wars fun during your vacation.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, and May the Force Be With You!
