    Star Wars weekends?

    I am a fan of Star Wars, with out of the way my question.

    Would visiting WDW exclusively for Star Wars weekend warrant a trip?

    Any advice would be great!

    I love SWW. They are a lot of fun. I highly recommend them for Star Wars fans.

    If you're a big Star Wars fan, than like said before, it is worth it. Crowds pick up a little bit, but still, if you're fan there is a lot to do with Star Wars out and about. One that comes to mind right away is the Storm Troopers on top of the kiosk where you enter the park. Cool details!

    This is our 5th trip to WDW but our first SWW and my boys are very excited. Watch Lou's video report and he has podcast as well which provides great tips and additional info. It's a full day's worth of activities and fun. I also have posted last year's maps (there are different ones passed out every week) to my blog if anyone is interested to check out the acivities. The celebrities will change but you can a good sense of what to expect. vivawdw. com/ 2010/01/star-wars-weeknds/

    Not only is it worth it to a SW fan, but you should plan a day for nothing but SW activities at DHS while you are there. I'm sure you will have time for some other attractions at DHS as well, but you will want to plan your day around the SWW activites and save the rest of DHS for another day.
