    We are surprising our 8 yr old son w/ a trip to DWorld Jan 1-6. I’d like more info about Star Wars characters & shows but the site says “no times available” when I enter our trip dates. I’m concerned because Star Wars is the reason we are going

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jessica!

    Wow, a trip to Walt Disney World Resort sounds like a magical surprise for your son. I love watching videos of parents surprising their little ones with a vacation to the Most Magical Place On Earth and I'm so excited for you to make those memories together with your Jedi Youngling.

    I had a look at the calendar and while there aren't any times listed at the moment for some of the meet and greet experiences at Star Wars Launch Bay for the week of your vacation just yet, I don't think there's any reason to be concerned. Sometimes the schedules don't update until a few weeks before the day you're looking at, so I recommend that you keep refreshing to see what pops up. In the meantime, there are still plenty of Star Wars activities for you to enjoy at Disney's Hollywood Studios! The calendar has updated to include showtimes during your vacation for Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away, which I definitely recommend if you have a young Padawan in your family. Of course, there is still the whole planet of Batuu to explore at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge! You'll be able to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run, and join the fight against the First Order when you ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Black Spire Outpost is also where you can find Droid Depot and Savi's Workshop, which is where you can craft your own droid or lightsaber, so be sure to visit so your son can test his Force sensitivity.

    Have a magical day, Jessica!

Meet the Panelist: Jessica, Texas

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
