    My son LOVED the parade of stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters at Hollywood Studios on our last trip. Is that still happening? If not, what is the best way to see some Star Wars characters?

    Bright suns, Amy! A visit to planDisney will help your youngling experience the world of Star Wars at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    The best opportunity to encounter Stormtroopers and other characters from Star Wars is to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios! While parades have temporarily been suspended, characters can still be found around the Disney Parks. Characters such as Chewbacca and Rey can be seen from time-to-time at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. While you can't do a traditional "meet and greet" with the characters, you will still be able to see them and pose for photos with the characters in the background.

    Another way to see characters is to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! Here you will see characters such as BB-8, Rey, Kylo Ren, General Hux, and the most impressive display of Stormtroopers that I've ever seen at Walt Disney World Resort. In order to experience this attraction you will need to secure a boarding pass using the My Disney Experience app. You can secure a boarding pass at 7:00AM while on Disney property. You can also secure a boarding pass at 2:00PM while inside Disney's Hollywood Studios. Be ready to secure a boarding pass immediately at one of  those times as they go fast! Your youngling must be 40 inches tall to experience this attraction.

    While at Disney's Hollywood Studios be sure to see C-3PO and R2D2 at Star Tours: The Adventures Continue! This ride will have you board a Starspeeder 1000 as you prepare to blast into a galaxy far, far away. One of the things that I love about this ride is that there are several adventures that you can experience each time that you ride! Your youngling must be 40 inches tall to experience this attraction.

    May the Force be with you as you plan your upcoming visit! And, of course, you can always come back to visit planDisney!
