Star Wars Weekends
For 4 weekends (Friday through Sunday) each year, Disney's Hollywood Studios becomes Star Wars Fan Headquarters with a variety of interactive sessions with people who either starred in or created the Star Wars Movies that people love, costumed characters, and fun-filled Star Wars based events and activities. It is a wonderful event no matter if you are just a casual fan or you can recite every line from all of the movies and can argue the origin of Aurra Sing.
