    Hi, thanks panel for all your wonderful help. We are planning on going to DHS for a star wars weekend. My ? is should we visit dhs for 2 days or just the 1. We don't have ph passes and wasn't sure if there was enough to do at dhs for 2 days.

    My sons could spend the entire day just being part of the events of Star Wars Weekend without venturing to any of the other attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  However, that may not be the same for everyone. 

     I'd start at Disney's Hollywood Studios and see where the day takes you.  You might find that you are able to accomplish all that you'd like to get done within one day (which I do think can be done), but know in the back of  your mind that you can certainly come back for a second day.  

    If you are planning on meeting any of the movie stars, you will need to get into line right away (it will be toward the left as you head past the first set of stores near Indiana Jones) in the morning to get fast passes for that attraction (they won't count against you for other fast-passes); in past years each person who wants to participate in the meet and greet needs to be present.  Then, you may want to briskly walk over to Tower of Terror or Star Tours if you hope to ride those, maybe even grabbing a fast pass for one of them.  Similarly, try to get to Toy Story Midway Mania early, too, since it can fill up quickly and have longer waits.  Those are probably the 3 most-in-demand attractions to do early.  Once that is done, you can probably plan out the rest of your day balancing the events with Star Wars weekend and the remaining attractions.
