Star Wars Weekend Returns Today To Disney's Hollywood Studios

 Star Wars Weekend 2015

After 11 long months, in what now seems to have been in a galaxy far, far away, we finally have the return of Star Wars Weekends.  From now until June 14th, Fridays through Sundays, Star Wars fever will once again set upon Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Prepare to see the park filled with both Disney characters, and Star Wars characters.  In fact, prepare to see fans dressed up as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Hans Solo, walking down the streets in the park, as well as walking down International Drive in Orlando.  Access to the Star Wars attractions and events only requires a regular park ticket.

Star Wars Weekend at Disney

There will be a Celebrity Motorcade, and a "Symphony in the Stars" fireworks spectacular and stage show.  There are several new attractions and happenings this year.  Stop by the new Rebel Hangar for some specialty cocktails and food.  And, actor Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine) will be attending for his first time ever.  There is a very exciting list of interstellar celebrity appearances to accompany him.  If you're looking for autographs, then head over and grab a Fastpass ticket to ensure your place in line.  Below is the list of all scheduled celebrity appearances.
