    Do any Star Wars characters still appear daily at Hollywood Studios? We are visiting soon and our son is a big fan. This will be the first year that he is old enough to go on Star Tours. Thanks!


    Yes, there are a few Star Wars characters that you will see in the park, even when it is not Star Wars Weekends.

    Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy is a great way for your son to see Darth Vader, some Jedi, and some Storm Troopers up close and personal! If your son is at least 4 (up to 12), this is a way for him to get on stage and learn to wield a light saber too. But if you want to do this, make sure that you are at Hollywood Studios right when it opens, and make signing him up for the Academy the first thing you do when you get into the park. Slots fill up fast!

    And if you think he would not want to do it, he can still watch.

    I hope that this helps!

    Have a magical vacation!
