Darth Vadar with child

    Mollie from PA Asked

    Hello, we will be celebrating my son's third birthday during our visit. He is to say the least obsessed with darth Vader. He will be too young for the Jedi academy. Any other suggestions to make my son's birthday wish come true?

    Come to the Dark Side, Mollie, and together we will make your son’s birthday the greatest in the galaxy! If your son is obsessed with the Dark Side, like my little guy is, head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s ground zero for everything Star Wars! 
    Since your Youngling is not within the age range to participate in Jedi Training, you still have a few other options. I highly recommend watching training as it unfolds, as Darth Vader usually appears on stage, using the Force against the Jedis. It’s very cool to see. Then, if your son is at least 40” tall, you can blast through space on Star Tours. Be sure to make a FastPass+ reservation for this experience, as it’s incredibly popular. Your vehicle will take you through several lands, and don’t be afraid to ride it twice. There are over 16 combinations and journies to see! You can even build a lightsaber with a Dark Side touch in Tatooine Traders. Next, fill your belly with a meal at Backlot Express, which has all the best Star Wars Foods like Padawan Lemonade and a Dark Side Cupcake, complete with Darth Vader chocolate and lightsaber accent. This would be a PERFECT birthday treat for your son!
    Next up, visit the Star Wars Launch Bay and see speeders from the films, lightsabers, helmets, and even trade with the Jawas. They can’t trade food (dietary restrictions!) or money (it’s not good on their planet!), so bring something shiny like a plastic jewel, a curly bobby pin, or an old spoon. You might get something neat in return! You can meet BB-8, Chewie, and Kylo Ren. Your Memory Maker comes in handy here, as Disney Photographers are on hand to capture all the excitement. Please let me know if I can help bring more of the Force to your magical vacation. May the Force be with you! ~ Lindsey
