Photo Flashback ~ Star Wars Weekend

Welcome to Disney Photo Flashback where each week we enter the Wayback Machine of our Disney trip photos( that's E drive on my computer;) and share a few of our favorites.

This week is International Hollywood Studios Awareness Week, an annual event hosted by StudiosCentral.com. I enjoyed it so much last year that I thought I'd join in again.
We're posting on Hollywood Studios all week. Check out the Wordless Wednesday Blog hop with 26 bloggers joining in on the celebration this week.
Disney Hollywood Studios is a great park and I think sometimes it gets overshadowed. Thanks to Matt for bringing attention to it. Be sure to stop by the StudiosCentral.com and check out all that's happening.

Today we're taking a look back at Star Wars Weekends. We have a blast in the Studios running from character meet & greet to the parade and special events, not to mention the shopping! Autograph seekers queue up early (pre-dawn) but not my group. We usually stay out late the night before enjoying EMH and roll in to Hollywood Studios around 10am. There's still plenty to see and do if you arrive later in the day. Course you won't get TSM FPs but there's plenty of Star Wars activities and all the other attractions going on. If you have a Star Wars fan in your group, they are going to love it.




Celebrity meet & greets are held throughout the park.
Many fans dress up for the occasion as well, not me. When you're almost as old as Yoda it's time to leave it to the young ones. I'll wear Star Wars shirts and pick up a few limited edition shirts as souvenir. Lightsabers don't pack well;)
 


My favorite part of the weekends is the Hyperspace Hoopla, where all your favorite characters put on a show at the end of the day. It gets pretty crowded so you might want to head over there early to get a good spot. 

I hope you enjoyed our photographic journey.
