    Yes. And unfortunately it does look as though he will not be out this year.

    That's a shame, joanna71985.
    Last year, my son and I took pictures with Jedi Mickey in the Sounds Dangerous theatre.

    I had heard that Darth Goofy, Princess Minnie and Darth Donald might be signing autographs this year. I hope so. Fingers crossed.

    That's disappointing to hear that Jedi Mickey might not be available.

    For those of you who have done SWW before, I'm having a difficult time trying to plan my DHS day. Is it too much to plan the other attractions as well as the Star Wars related activities? I don't plan on waiting for autographs but would like to see the characters and definately want to see the parade. We didn't do the big thrill rides last time because the kids were too small and child swap wasn't really an option for us. This time we really do want to do that. Of course, Toy Story Mania is a must do as well.

    So, I guess my question really is, are there Star Wars related activities that go on continuous all day or are events scheduled at specific times? (Or both?) Am I trying to over plan this too much?

    We spilled the beans last night and told the kids we're going. Two weeks from today we'll be there.

    It is both. The SWW characters are out for most of the day, but most switch off with a different charater (for example: Luke switched off with Leia). That means you may have to get into a line more then once. Also, some lines can be LONG. Other activities have specific times.

    Thought I'd add a poll to this thread to see which weekend everyone's going. Please cast your entry even if you posted in the thread. Thanks!

    Note - you can select more than one weekend if you need to get your Jedi fix more than one weekend in June

    That seems kinda odd that Jedi Mickey wouldn't be available. Hopefully he will be available. I loved seeing him 2 years ago when we were at SWW.

    I'm looking forward to it...as we'll be going in a few weeks!! I had thought about dressing up...maybe just some Jedi robes. Nothing too fancy. We went to a Pirate and Princess Party a few weeks back and had SO MUCH hilarity dressing up. Guess I gotta get moving on my Jedi costume.

    I hope you all get the DWT lanyards-so you can more easily find each other and pictures-lots of pictures. Maybe a mini meet with Lou and everyone can happen and you all will share photos. That would be great.

    No lanyard, but I did pick up a DWT T-shirt! I could wear that to DHS!

    i went to disney world on june 7-17 this year so i attended the starwars weekend 13-15. it was awsome!!!!!!!!! i adored the little shop they put in; Wickets Warhouse. that was like a mini star wars mall!!!! we bought a lot of star wars items this year, much more than usual. but i didnt mind!! im not crazy about star wars (im much more obsessed with my p.o.t.c. 1,2,3 haha) but it was still pretty darn awesome. i didnt get to actually 'meet' the real actors from the movies but i did take pictures!!! i think ill put them on later. my family and i bought posters, pins, coffe mugs, shirts, lightsabers (both the new light up smallish ones and the original huge ones) and much more. we werent as crazy as most families, who dressed up in full costume as characters. that was rather amusing, watching people go by in these full-blown outfits. we waited an hour (a whole HOUR) to get a picture with darth vader. o no, not the person who actually played darth vader in the movies, the costumed disney cast person who played darth v. for what, a day? ya, i was thrilled to wait an hour in florida heat. (u see, i usually use fast passes for EVERYTHING. i hardly do any waiting) other than that, the day we spent in MGM (i refuse to call it Hollywood Studios) for star wars weekend was priceless.

    Oh man, I have had so much fun at SWW this year. I have met all the characters but Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and Shaak Ti/Mace Windu (but either have them already or will be seeing them this upcoming weekend). I have also met Daniel Logan and Warwick Davis. Really nice guys. I can't wait to try to meet Jake Lloyd this weekend. I added all the pictures (including the celebrites) to my character website, if anyone wants to see the pictures.
