Looks like we will be at WDW during a “Star Wars Weekend” when we attend June 26 thru July 2nd! Being a huge Star Wars fan (especially Chewbacca), I need all of the hints and help I can get from all of you who have experience! From what I can tell, Star Wars weekend takes place at Disney Studios, right? Please help me maximize my boys (16, 8, & 6) experience by blessing us with your hints and tips!

PS-My wife isnt showing it outwardly, but inside I think she doing the cha-cha!

Star Wars Weekends are held in Hollywood Studios. Give yourself at least a day if not two to see everything. It is SUPER crowded but there is alot going on!! The Star Wars characters have alot of meet and greets and the lines tend to be long but where else would you get to meet your favorite star wars characters? They sell special merchandise you can only get those days back by the backlot tour (that’s where it was last year). And don’t miss the parade!!

We went last year and are going again in 2 weeks. DH is a HUGE Star Wars fan!!

Star Wars Weekends Celebrate The Clone Wars
May 13, 2008

The Star Wars adventures continue on Aug. 15 with the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars from Lucasfilm Animation, and this year’s Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort will offer fans an exciting, in-depth look at the making of this big-screen animated epic.
Among the features at this year’s Star Wars Weekends, which run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from June 6 to June 29, 2008, will be “Behind the Force – Experience The Clone Wars,” an exploration of the creation of this groundbreaking Star Wars feature film. During “Experience The Clone Wars,” fans will get a chance to meet a representative of Lucasfilm Ltd. and, at the culmination of the presentation, see an exclusive clip of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that can be seen only at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends.

“The Clone Wars is Star Wars as you’ve never seen it before, so it makes sense The Clone Wars at Star Wars Weekends that we’re offering fans at Star Wars Weekends something completely unique – an early glimpse at a Star Wars movie,” said Kayleen Walters, director of marketing for Lucasfilm Ltd. “We’re working with Disney to create an event no Star Wars fan will want to miss.”

In addition to the excitement surrounding Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Weekends will feature celebrities from the classic, live-action movies, who will be on hand each weekend for photos, Q&A, autograph sessions and Hollywood-style motorcades. See the guest list in this story here.

In addition, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will offer a host of surprises throughout the four weekends, promising to bring an unprecedented level of “sneak preview” excitement and fun to the popular Star Wars Weekends.

Other activities included in the fan-fest fun: the “Padawan Mind Challenge,” allowing kids under 12 to test their wits before the Jedi Council; “Legends of the Force,” a motorcade featuring favorite Star Wars celebrities; and “Jedi Training Academy,” where young Jedi-wannabes can learn lightsaber battle techniques and test their newfound skills against Darth Vader or Darth Maul.

The Star Wars Weekends fun is included with regular admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Guests can access more information by visiting Walt Disney World Resort - Detecting Browser Properties . . ..
