    Can some1 give me any/all info on EVERYTHING STAR WARS to do @ the parks & where? 1ST trip & son(s) loves SW! Also, visiting 4/12-4/19, so missing the weekends, still any chances to see the charecters? This would make his trip MAGICAL!

    Hi Samuel -

    If your son loves Star Wars, Disney's Hollywood Studios is the place to be.  First, you can start by riding Star Tours, a motion simulator ride that takes you to the moon of Endor.  Standing in line for this attraction, you'll walk under a giant AT-AT and see R2-D2 and C-3PO working on your aircraft.  The height requirement for this attraction is 40 inches, and children under 3 are not permitted to ride.

    Outside of the attraction's entrance is Jedi Training Academy.  This is a 30 minute session where your child may be chosen from the audience to participate in light saber training -- robes and light sabers are provided.  I don't want to spoil the fun, but during training there are a few visits from the dark side.  Check the daily park schedule for specific times.

    Finally, it is possible that you may find Chewbacca and other Star Wars characters outside of the Star Tours attraction.  Again, check your park schedule for details.

    Have a magical vacation, and may the Force be with you!
