    Returning for 2nd visit 5/29 -6/4/11.DS is HUGE Star Wars fan. Will Star Tours be re-opened by then? Also, for Star Wars weekends I notice that they run, Fri, Sat, Sun w/ different guests; do they have a schedule of events or how does that work? Thanks!

    Hi Karen,

    Love that you are planning a second trip to WDW!! 

    I know lots of people that are super excited about the refurbishment that Star Tours is currently undergoing.  It is scheduled to reopen on May 16, 2011 but that is always subject to change once the date gets closer.

    Star Wars Weekends is a wildly popular event usually held in the spring at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  During the weekends, celebrity guests host the events which include talks, autograph sessions and a motorcade. They will have a lineup of celebrities appearing each day.

    Right now, they have not announced the dates, details or celebrity lineups for the 2011 weekends but you can click here to see information on the events held during the 2010 Star Wars Weekends to get an idea of what your son has to look forward to if your trip falls on one of the dates.

    Your son will also enjoy the Jedi Training Academy which is very popular among young Star Wars fans.

    Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they usually make announcements regarding special event dates.  If you are on twitter, follow @DisneyParks and @WaltDisneyWorld.  If you're on Facebook, keep an eye on the official Disney Facebook page.

    Also, please feel free to check back with us closer to your trip. Hopefully we'll know a lot more about the 2011 Star Wars weekends after the beginning of the year.  May the force be with you :-) Allison
