The force will be strong at Walt Disney World ® May 16 through June 15 when Star Wars Weekends returns to Hollywood Studios ® for five consecutive weekends of all things Star Wars.

Along with the out-of-this-world entertainment, favorite Disney’s Hollywood Studios attractions, and a special pyrotechnics show, “Symphony in the Stars” will be more than 60 Star Wars characters and even some cast members from the Star Wars saga, who will meet and greet fans. If you’re planning an intergalactic good time this May don’t miss these top character meet-and-greets:

New this year, guests can celebrate the Star Wars saga with their favorite Disney characters dressed as their favorite Star Wars characters at Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dine at Hollywood Vine. As you dine on a delectable buffet full of Star Wars-themed food, Mickey and friends will meet-and-greet fans. Guests can start their intergalactic day with the Star Wars Dine-In Galactic Breakfast at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant. Both dining experiences start May 4 and will continue daily through June 15. The Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dine is not included in regular theme park admission.

Star Wars celebrities will also make special appearances in star conversations, autograph sessions and photo opportunities throughout each day. If you’d like an autograph we recommend getting a FastPass ticket for this. An extremely limited number of FastPasses will be available on a first-come first-served basis at the main entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios ® so make sure you get there early.

The Legends of the Force Motorcade and Celebrity Welcome is also another great way to meet Star Wars stars and celebrities. The motorcade begins at the front of the park and travels to the Star Wars Weekends Event Stage, concluding with a grand celebrity welcome.
