Walt Disney World Resort has announced the dates for its Star Wars Weekends. The event will run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May the 20th until June 12th. Ocean Florida, the Florida holiday specialist, is expecting these weekends to be very popular, and they are encouraging their customers to book holiday packages soon if they want to take part in this unique event.

Harry Hastings, director of Ocean Florida, comments on the event: “This is likely to be a very exciting time for the Walt Disney World Resort; the combination of one of the world’s favourite theme parks with this storied film franchise is sure to be a delight for both children and adults.”

The Star Wars Weekends promise to feature a large collection of characters from the hit motion pictures. Limited-edition merchandise and celebrity autographs will be available, while children will also have the chance to participate in trivia challenges and the Jedi Training Academy. Additionally, Walt Disney World Resort has arranged numerous special appearances including one by a member of the original Star Wars cast: Anthony Daniels, the actor who played the droid C3PO.

According to Hastings, families should start making arrangements if they want to attend the event. He states: “Given the quality of the line-up offered by Walt Disney World Resort, this is sure to be a very exciting period of time; we recommend that people make arrangements now on flights and accommodation in order to ensure their place.
