    Dates for 2011 Star Wars Weekends?

    Anyone know when the dates for Star Wars Weekends in 2011 will be announced? We have a trip planned for May 14-21 and hope it starts on the 20th.

    I think the dates for 2010 were announced 12/22/09 so I'm hoping the announcement will come soon.

    Disney05: the quotes you have are great!

    Regarding this quote: LAUGHTER IS TIMELESS, IMAGINATION HAS NO AGE AND DREAMS ARE FOREVER. - as I watch my kids play, I wonder where my imagination has gone.

    Dates may depend on progress on Star Tours - I'm sure they really, really, really want it to open on the first Star Wars Weekend.

    this is true... though i hardly expect Star Tours to take that long to refurb... more decorative and theming changes than anything else... really just updating the simulators... the actual video has probably been done for months now...

    Lots of programming changes likely as well to accommodate the variable video, shakedowns of the new programming (don't want to exacerbate motion sickness problems - we don't want it to become Body Wars), installation of the new 3D projection system, etc. It is more than just cosmetic.

    oh yeh absolutely more than cosmetic, but hopefully they are able to remove the simulators and do the necessary upgrades at the same time the cosmetic upgrades are being done... Star Wars Weekend should be on a pretty normal schedule... btw as an aside... speaking to a cast member on my last trip i was informed that there will be no "soft" opening for the attraction as the Disneyland version will open a few weeks earlier...
