    Hi! Visiting WDW 8/20-8/28. Is Chewbacca still doing meet & greets? Thanks!

    Hi Diana,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and, as Chewbacca would say, “RrrrrWARrrrr!” 

    My family – even my not-really-into-Star-Wars tween – loves meeting Chewbacca. Not only does he give the warmest Wookiee hugs, but he is a fantastic listener. On a recent visit, my preschool-aged son told Chewie the entire plot of Fantasmic! and Chewbacca was mesmerized the entire time. He even asked questions, translated by the Rebel Cast Members who keep him company. It was such a sweet and magical moment!

    Diana, I’m so happy to confirm that Chewbacca is indeed still melting the hearts of Guests at Walt Disney World. He can currently be found in Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and his schedule can be found on his character experience web page and under Characters in your My Disney Experience mobile app. Character experiences and times are always subject to change, but I’m hoping this Star Wars legend will be around for light years to come.

    If you love Chewbacca and the Star Wars universe, another favorite of my family’s is the Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away stage show, where you can watch legends take the stage to showcase their skills. There are so many great Star Wars experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios these days, and I am over-the-moon excited for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to bring us immersive and incredible experiences in 2019!

    Wishing you a magical vacation filled with warm Wookiee hugs,
