    Exclamation Star Wars Weekend Autographs and Other Questions

    I have a few questions about Star Wars Weekends:

    1) What are the stars allowed to autograph? Are they only allowed to sign Disney merchandise sold at the park, or can we bring action figures of their characters from home to sign?

    2) Does waiting in line for an autograph prevent you from getting in a good position to buy Limited Edition merchandise? Do they hand out Fastpasses for the autographs before the park opens?

    3) We probably only have one day to check out SW weekend. Will The Star Wars activities take up much of the day, or will there be time to see some of the attractions we haven't seen yet like Toy Story Mania?

    I'm hoping for a fun and not frustrating experience. Any help is appreciated!

    I can't answer 1 and 3. But for #2, FPs are not handed out before the park opens. The way it works, you get into line for the celebrity you want to meet. Then at 9am, the FP machines open. It is 1 FP per ticket (so you can't get FPs for people who aren't in line with you).

    conducted a little bit of research for ya. Here is what I have came up with: Question 1: They will be signing items other than their photocards but are contracted to sign one autograph per person.Scheduled Guests | Star Wars Weekends

    Question 3: I haven't seen the schedule for this year's event, but last year all of the activities ended at 7 pm.

    Hi
    Don't get your vintage Action figures signed. it will only devalue them.
