    Star Wars STARS or not

    Hello
    Do we really need the Star Wars stars at the weekends. It just seems to me that the same old faces keep turning up year after year making a quick buck on the back of a film that is now 30 years old. I understand that Disney are not going to get the Mega stars but the ones that do come have been there every year or the new stars we have never heard of. One of the "STARS" who is rather tall (Not David Prowse he's a true gentleman) never seems to be happy, never smiles and we hear the same old story every year you know how it goes "George walked in he stud up, George said i think we have found him" and so on. Anyway i do enjoy Star Wars weekends and i'm going to weekend 4.

    I don't know if they are needed, but the guests must like them because Disney keeps bringing them back. We have been to SWW every year not because of SWW, it just happens to be when I get vacation time. For us, it's kind of a bonus even if we don't do any of the special SWW events. It's fun just to see all the SW characters in the park.

    well disney must still think it's neccesary, otherwise it would've hit the chopping block like soap opera weekends did and some of their other events like that. i for one love star wars, so i'm glad it's still around

    I'm glad the same celebrities keep coming back. I love meeting Warwick Davis- he is really nice, and I had a blast talking to him. I also enjoyed meeting Dave Filloni (sp?) last summer as well.

    They do. They've had the actor of Chewie, Darth Vader, and others come before.

    *brings the thread back to life*

    I'm glad they have the Star Wars weekends. I just hope they still have them when we get around to going to Disney World. *crosses fingers*
