Star Wars Weekends is held each year and is so much fun for both fans of the franchise, as well as for those who (like me) are not completely immersed in the lore, but just enjoy the atmosphere and fun of the event. During the event, guests can take part in special meet-and-greet opportunities with Star Wars celebrities, meet with characters from the Star Wars universe, purchase one of a kind merchandise, plus take in special shows and presentations. For guests who would like to have the force be with them, the actual event is included in theme park admission.
There have been no other further announcements about next year’s event, like information about the theme or any of the celebrities who will be appearing, however, more details about Star Wars Weekends will be posted to the blog as soon as they are known.
