If your son or daughter is a Star Wars fan like my little man is, then make sure you circle the dates on your calendar for Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World. This year the stormtroopers and jedis will descend upon Disney’s Hollywood Studios from May 17 to June 9, 2013. This year is sure to be even bigger than the past since Disney has now acquired all the rights to Star Wars. Here are just a few things that your future jedis will have to look forward to!
- Join celebrities and characters for special shows, presentations and more! From Friday to Sunday each weekend, you can immerse yourself in the beloved saga that takes place in a galaxy far, far away. Check back here for more information as this popular Spring event approaches.
