For the fans of Star Wars nothing is so exciting than what Disney Star Wars Weekends have to offer. Started in 1997, this one of a kind exclusive Disney World event is a must anticipated fantasy-fest which celebrates and brings to life the favorite actions and scenes from the Iconic film saga of all times. Every year from May through June Disney Hollywood Studios theme park becomes the most happening place to look for. During the period the Park is at its best with plenty of special and unique Star Wars activities and attractions that every fan and guest loves to celebrate and enjoy.
The atmosphere at this famous Disney Event is simply electrifying. Whether it’s enjoying a fight with favorite characters from the film such as Darth Vader or meeting the stars and celebrities from the original movie; or enjoying a behind the scene tour or participating in spectacular parades and firework shows or more, the thrill and excitement of Star Wars can be felt everywhere in the Park. A visit to Disney Hollywood Studios during the Star Wars Weekends is a dream come true experience for many.
The special event has always been an integral part of the Walt Disney tradition. And now with the acquisition of “Lucusfilm” in October 2012 by the company there is more in the offing than one could have thought. It is expected that the Event will only get bigger and more promising than all its predecessors. There will be more fun, more parades and tours, including special souvenirs and memorabilia for fans and much more as the beloved Franchise embraces Disney as its new owner now.
Some of the major highlights of the mega event include the Star Tours – a not to be missed ride experience with plenty of new adventures and surprises. For the riders there is something new every time they board the fantasy ride and it is also considered as a center piece attraction of the event as it incorporates the thrills and tastes for both the nostalgic and young fans of the Iconic saga. Again the special Parade makes a favorite attraction for guests to celebrate and enjoy the awesome fantasies with several Star Wars characters in their impressive costumes and also not to forget the appearance of special celebrity guests from the original movie on each day during the Parade. The Jedi Training Academy is another busiest attraction during the event. And last but not the least it is worth a visit to the Darth’s Mall, where one can browse through a galaxy of Star Wars merchandise.
