Ready, Are You?

You know I have to fit some Master Yoda in somewhere and this might not be the only time. On to the important things that you should expect during your visit. If you are looking at standing in line to get an autograph from one of the fine Star Wars Cast, you better make sure that you get a Disney Fastpass. There will only be a limited amount handed out so make sure to get yours as soon as you can, you do not want to miss out on this once in a lifetime adventure. When it is time for the Parade, don’t go looking for other things to do because you feel that you have seen it a hundred times because it is going to be packed with Star Wars Features during these weekends and you will not want to miss any changes. If you have a child between the ages of 5 and 12, they might be interested in enrolling with the Jedi Training Academy. This is sure to be a lot of fun for everyone and it could feature your child as one of the actors picked for this unique show.

The Force runs strong in you

Oh, it is just too much fun and I have a hard time stopping it once it has started. A number of shows are being added during these weekends that are sure to get you all excited about the upcoming adventures. Since they are only here for a limited time, you might want to get to each venue early to make sure you get a seat for each act. These shows are considered Behind the Scenes and will give you information on Star Wars and the happenings behind the screen. It should be very fascinating and exciting to hear about some of these tales.
