    I have a 24-year old special needs son that is all about Star Wars. We will be visiting the parks in mid-February 2022 and he wants to meet his favorite villain, Darth Vader. How can this Mom go about making this happen? We will be there on his birthd

    Bright Suns, Donna! 

    I am incredibly pleased to hear that you, and your Jedi son, will be visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios next year! It’s important for Jedi to come together within the boarders of Batuu to harness their powers against the Dark Side! Let your son know that the Resistance is forever grateful for his loyalty! 

    Though Jedi typically try to stay away from the Galaxy’s greatest villains, we do understand their curiosity! The Star Wars Launch Bay: Encounter Darth Vader experience is temporarily unavailable. I’d recommend watching the Disney Parks Blog, as you never know when he will return from the Death Star!

    Don’t lose hope, Donna! There’s still lots to experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! For example: If you and your son take a ride on Star Tours — The Adventures Continue, you’ll have the chance of seeing Darth Vader on your flight! (You should ride multiple times as there is always a rotating selection of flights being offered by Star Tours!) You can also hang around Kylo Ren’s TIE Echelon ship, as he (and Storm Troopers) are known to sulk around! 

    Be sure to stop by a gift shop within Disney’s Hollywood Studios! They’ll have a complimentary “Happy Birthday” button for your son! Just mention it to any Cast Member! 

    If you have additional questions before your trip, Donna, we hope to hear from you again at planDisney! 

    May the Force be with you and your son!
