    Hi there! Since Disney has recently bought Star Wars are you able to see Star Wars characters on days other than Star Wars weekend? Thanks!

    Hi Missy ~

    We're huge Star Wars fans at my house and are very excited about the new possibilities we may see in the parks now that Disney has bought Lucasfilm.

    Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers appear in Jedi Training Academy at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We've also seen Darth Maul make frequent appearances especially when the crowd levels are higher and they add additional spots for the Jedi Training sessions.

    There have been a couple of times I've visited when Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers were available for pictures near Star Tours but that is not on a regular basis.

    You never know what character experiences Disney will announce next but for now, the best time to see Star Wars characters is still during Star Wars Weekends. In the meantime, Guests can enjoy these out of this world Star Wars experiences at Hollywood Studios:
    * Jedi Training Academy
    * Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
    * Visit Tatooine Traders located next to Star Tours to find awesome Star Wars merchandise, build your own lightsabers and Droids. You can also do this at Once Upon A Toy at Downtown Disney.
    * There is a great photo op location just across from Tatooine Traders.

    Please feel free to visit us with any other questions. It is our pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
