    I am taking my bf (25 years old) to DW for his first time! He is the biggest Star Wars fan in the entire world and I would really like to do something special for him besides Star Tours. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you!

    Hi Sarah ~

    I feel the force is strong with your boyfriend. Looks like you are planning for August, but if it were at all possible to plan your trip during a Star Wars Weekends, I'd highly recommend it. If not this year, perhaps you can plan for the 2015 events.

    For Star Wars experiences throughout the year, blast over to Hollywood Studios. Even though your boyfriend is above the maximum age for Jedi Training Academy, he'll have fun watching it so be sure to stop by during a training session.

    I would also suggest visiting Tatooine Traders which is located next to Star Tours - The Adventures Continue. You'll find some awesome Star Wars merchandise there. You can also build your own lightsabers (and buy some really nice collectible ones) and build your own Droids. They also carry some nice collectible artwork and figures.

    Another fun thing to do at Tatooine Traders is pose for photos where they superimpose your face over Star Wars characters. They do a great job and the photos are really cool.

    There is a great photo op location just across from Tatooine Traders where you can climb about a Speeder Bike.

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

    May the force be with you :-) Allison V.
