    Planning to attend the first weekend of Star Wars Weekends in May 2016. How does fast pass work on these days (normal rides/shows mixed with Star Wars activities)? When will the special dining be available to book (180 or not)? Thanks!

    Greetings Jedi Master Scott,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Star Wars Weekends are full of "out-of-this-world" entertainment and experiences so prepare yourself for a "hyperspeed" ride through the galaxy! 

    Information about 2016 Star Wars Weekends has not yet been released, but FastPass+ experiences for Attractions will be reserved in the same manner as they are on a regular basis. You may reserve a FastPass+ experience 60 days prior to your arrival if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or 30 days prior to your visit if you are staying at an off-site Hotel. In the past, there have been special Dining Packages offered with Advanced Dining Reservations available 180 days prior to your Resort stay. Also in the past there have been Special Experiences that include reserved seating and/or preferred viewing for events such as Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade, Celebrity Talk Shows, and Symphony in the Stars Fireworks Show. 

    Unfortunately, there is no set schedule for when information on Star Wars Weekends Dining Packages or Special Experiences will be released. I suggest checking the Disney Parks Blog frequently for updates and information. 

    I hope this information helps. Please let us know if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    May The Force Be With You,
