    I have two boys obsessed with Star Wars. We will miss the SW weekend events. Any other major Star Wars events or attractions they can experience. Ages 6 and 8

    Hi Joanne!

         I think that I have refereed more Star Wars duels than I can count - the bad thing is that my husband is in on most of them!  Your boys can get their fill of Star Wars when they visit Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The most obvious location is at Star Tours, the action packed attraction that mimics a trip to the Moon of Endor.  When you exit the ride, a Speed Bike is tucked into the foliage across the road - be sure to let your boys take a picture on it!

         Brand new at the Disney Studios is the Jedi Training Academy.  Many times throughout the day, several children are picked to participate in a light saber duel with enemy forces.  There is even a great video on this site that shows a few tricks on getting picked to participate.  Just click on the box that says "Meet Angela Basset" and then scroll over until you see "Jedi Training Academy."

         For a little extra money, why not let them get their faces painted to resemble their favorite Star Wars character?  Just to warn you, we had quite a battle at bath time trying to convince them to wash off their faces!  Also, at Tatooine traders, located next to Star Tours, the boys can even create their own light sabers.  May the force be with you Joanne!

    Much pixie dust,

    Jackie S.
