    My son is a huge star wars fan and we were wanting to take him to see the Storm Troopers at the park opening. Does the storm troopers opening gate show only happen on weekends or does it happen every day from 5/15-6/14?

    Jedi Master Ginger-

    Princess Leah hid your message in a escape pod that landed near my home. My old friend, R2-D2, related this message from you:

    “Disney Parks Moms Panel. For years you have served Mickey Mouse helping Guests plan their Walt Disney World vacations. Now we seek your help regarding the location and frequency of the Stormtroopers at the Gate during Star Wars Weekends at Disney Hollywood Studios. I am excited to report our June arrival for the festivities and my Jedi Padawan is looking for these black and white clad warriors. You must see that he experiences and confronts these Stormtroopers. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Disney Parks Moms Panel. You're my only hope.”

    I am please to report that Stormtroopers only invade Disney’s Hollywood Studios when the theme park opens during Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Star Wars Weekends. The Stormtroopers in the past have monitored the turnstiles for “Rebel Scum” under the careful watch of the notorious Boba Fett. In recent years, this show moved from the entrance to inside theme park at the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. All Padawans are encouraged to attend the Jedi Training Academy where the they will hone their lightsaber skills while facing a Sith Lord always remembering that “a Jedi's strength flows from the Force.” Fortunately there is a training facility locally and you will not have to travel to Coruscant. He may also want to see the Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade where the 501st Stormtrooper Legion will march blasters in hand.

    May the Force Be With You.
