    We are going to WDW the week of Oct 6th. My 5yo son is a huge Star Wars fan. Are there any events/character interactions/etc that we can plan?

    Hi Nicole:

    For Star Wars attractions at Walt Disney World, enjoy the recently refurbished Star Tours at Hollywood studios.  Also head over the Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy, also at Hollywood Studios. Young Padawans between 4 to 12 learn to master the Force in an exciting live show featuring awesome lightsaber duels. You'll likely meet up with Darth Vader, and I've seen Darth Maul appear during busy seasons.  You can also enjoy some Star Wars shopping at Tatooine Traders. 

    Of course, the big Disney World event for Star Wars fans is Star Wars Weekends, where you can meet Star Wars celebrities, interact with your favorite characters, and enjoy special events. These special weekends are held in the spring, usually mid-May to mid-June.

    May the Force be with you.
