    What time do the storm troopers typically appear in a weekday parade at Walt Disney World? I plan to travel to Walt Disney World in January, 2018 . Thank you.

    Hi Jo Ellyn ~

    To be on the dark side, Stormtroopers are loved by everyone and we are always on the lookout for them when we visit Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Currently, you can see the March of the First Order several times daily. Captain Phasma leads her squad of Stormtroopers up Hollywood Boulevard to Center Stage in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Once they finish their demonstration, they will march back down Hollywood Boulevard. Schedules can be found online at the link I've provided above, on the My Disney Experience Mobile app, or by picking up a printed Times Guide as you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios. March of the First Order is an outside experience and could be cancelled due to inclement weather. The schedule for January 2018 is not up yet so check it a little closer to time.

    We have often seen Stormtroopers patrolling the area in front of Star Wars Launch Bay so keep your eyes open there.

    Be sure to check out Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away. It is super fun to see the characters bring some of the iconic movie moments to life. This is presented several times daily on the Center Stage in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

    When we were there a few weeks ago, we also saw Stormtroopers patrolling near the Grauman's Chinese Theatre while we were waiting on Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. Don't miss this one!

    Having said all of this, there are a lot of changes going on at Disney's Hollywood Studios and we never know what exciting announcement is coming next so check back closer to your trip.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
