    Will there be any Star Wars events the week of April 4-8, 2016? Will it be best to attend in the Summer 2016? When does Disney World start their Summer 2016 events? Sorry the Star Wars event is our big focus :) Thank you!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cheri!

    I see the Force is strong in your family! Unfortunately, the special events for spring and summer of 2016 haven't been announced yet. To get the most Star Wars special events, you will want to try to attend Star Wars Weekends. These are typically held during May and June and you will be able to find special Star Wars parades, fireworks, meet and greets, merchandise and lots more! Last year, the dates for Star Wars Weekends were announced in March. I recommend you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog over the next few months to get updates on official dates as soon as they are released.

    If you are interested in traveling to Walt Disney World Resort during the spring, a great weekend to come would be April 14-17. This year will be the first year for the Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side! As race weekends are always packed with fun events and special merchandise, you can expect this to be great time for your Jedi family to visit.

    Even if you can't come for one of these special events, there are always some fun Star Wars things to enjoy. Our family loves to take a ride through the galaxy with C-3PO as the captain on Star Tours - The Adventure Continues. If you have little Padawans, they can hone their Jedi skills at Jedi Training Academy. And everyone in the family can build their own lightsaber or droid at Tatooine Traders.

    May the Force be with you (and T-T-F-N, ta ta for now)!
