For you Star Wars lovers, your last chance to enjoy Disney’s Star Wars Weekends is quickly approaching. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the saga is celebrated with well-known characters, Jedi Knights and celebrities. Take a 3D Star Tour at Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, get a celebrity autograph at one of the events, and get your kids into lightsaber training at the Jedi Training Academy. At the end of the day, join in the Hyperspace Hoopla, where Ewoks, Wookiees, stormtroopers, Jawas and other creatures come together for music, comedy, dancing and interactive fun! Hurry, the last day to participate is June 10th.

There are several lodging options available near the park, including Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. There, you’ll enjoy a tropical jungle habitat, have rare animal encounters, and can take a dip in the huge outdoor pool or hot tub. You could also try the All-Star Movies Resort, where you can swim in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice-themed pool or taste the flavors of Planet Hollywood, which is onsite.

  1. Is there an age limit on the lightsaber class?? I love Star Wars, and wish I could find some way to get down to Orlando in the next few days.

  2. This would be so awesome to go to, I love Star Wars! I wonder if adults can participate in the lightsaber class as well… that would be so much fun. I want to hug an ewok while I’m there too!
