Are you looking for a way your little one can have a unique experience at Disney’s Star Wars Weekends [mid-May thru Mid-June]? Consider the Padawan Mind Challenge. Designed for kids ages 4 to 11, this interactive trivia event will test your little ones’ Star Wars knowledge. My six-year-old participated in the event during SWW 2015. It was the first time and we loved the experience. We headed to Hollywood Studios for SWW and we were at the gate one hour before park opening. SWW are a little crowd crazy, and if you want to participate in any of the activities you need to sign-up when the park first opens. Signup was located at the ABC Sound Studio. The participant [Padawan] and one adult had to be present for signup, no exceptions. We walked straight to the ABC Studio and signed up easily. Most people were hoping to sign their little […]

Star Wars Weekends is an intergalactic gathering that occurs at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios every year mid-May to mid-June. In Darth’s Mall, there is a LARGE arrangement of Star Wars gifts, goods and food that can only be purchased at SWW. It is a mega-fan’s wonderland. The top gift on my list is Disney’s DTech. The name itself is not explanatory at all. It is an amazing technology that allows you to be three-dimensionally portrayed as your favorite Star Wars action figure. Simply said, Disney takes your head and places it on the body of a Star Wars character: Jedi Knight, X-Wing Fighter, Storm Trooper, TIE-Fighter pilot or an Alderaan Princess. The options vary from year to year. You may choose between two different sizes 7” and 15”. The larger action figure cost significantly more than the smaller. The 7” figure cost $120+taxes and shipping, and the 15” cost […]

Star Wars Weekends occur at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during designated weekends in May and June, and it is extremely special time for super fans. Our young family decided to partake in one of the special dining events during SWW, at the Hollywood and Vine with Mickey and Friends. Disney’s favorite characters come together dressed as Star Wars classics. Be ready to see Jedi Mickey, Princess Leia Minnie, Darth Goofy, Ewok Chip and Dale, and Storm Trooper Donald. If you have visited the Hollywood and Vine under the leadership of Disney Junior, the atmosphere is very similar. When we entered we were treated to a photo opp with Ewok Chip and Dale, with pre-signed autograph cards. We were seated and the characters began rotating around the room and signing autographs and taking pictures. The buffet offered is VERY similar to the traditional Hollywood and Vine menu, only the menu items are […]

For all of us Disney Star Wars Fans, Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios is a must! It’s like ordering the best pizza in the world and then you find out it comes with extra cheese. Yes, please! What makes SWW hard for families with small children is that it can have a lot of lines and wait times and it may be a little more crowded than usual. Sometimes the little people in our family don’t understand why we need to be patient during these times. And I will have to admit SWW is a little more for Mommy and Daddy than the kids. One of the reasons our 2014 SWW was so magical with our small children, was the “Feel The Force Premium Package” offered during the event. The Feel the Force Premium Package gives VIP status and viewing areas for two of the day’s […]
