    I am going to Star Wars weekend in a few weeks. What are some must do's for my four year old? Thanks!

    I feel the Force is strong with your Padawan, James!

    Here are a few must-dos that my young Jedi loves to experience during STAR WARS Weekends.

    1. Sign-up your youngling for Jedi Training Academy so he is sure to learn the ways of the Force. This is a very popular event, so sign-up as soon as the theme park opens. 
    2. You will find there are many favorite Star Wars Characters positioned around the park. Check the Times Guide or My Disney Experience mobile app for Character times and locations. 
    3. Your Padawan will need lots of essential Star Wars gear. Head over to Darth's Mall where you will find all the special event merchandise, including themed snacks, such as the Han Solo in Carbonite popcorn bucket and Darth Vader cupcake.
    4. For a great view of the Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade, find a spot on Hollywood Boulevard. 
    5. If your Padawan desires a ride on a Starspeeder 1000, then he must be 40 inches to ride Star Tours® – The Adventures Continue. If he isn't quite Jedi height, then ask a Cast Member for a special FastPass card for way, way, way in the future. It's a great souvenir and something he can keep even when he redeems it later on.
    6. Consider purchasing Feel the Force Premium Package, which includes a reserved viewing location for Symphony in the Stars fireworks show and themed dessert party with specialty beverages. 

    I hope this helps, and I am sure your Padawan will have a galactic time during your visit!

    May the Force be with you!
