Great Site! It's been very helpful in our planning for SWW this year.

How long do the events go? I know they take place throughout the day but do they go all the way until MGM closes for the night? Do they end earlier in the day? Do they do EMH during SWW?

Also, do they have any kind of closing ceremonies on the last weekend?

We're really excited to go! It's a surprise trip for our 5 yr old who is a Star Wars maniac! If he wears his Anakin Skywalker costume, do you think he might have a better chance of being picked for the Jedi training?

Thanks for the help!

Welcome to MGMStudios.Org Figaro!

I have a saved schedule from SWW 2003 and you can see that there are events going until about 6:30-7:00 (park closed in May 2003 at 9:00PM), so it's safe to assume there will be events going on throughout the day until about the time it's time to go get a seat for Fantasmic!

In 2004, when EMH was just earl entry in the morning, SWW events did not start until the normal park opening time of 9:00am, so I imagine SWW events will not run when park is open early or closes late.

I'm not aware of any opening or closing ceremonies. I think the reason behind that is so that folks can go to any of the weekends and not worry about missing out on something.

If your son wears an outfit, he will certainly be noticed and probably get some more attention around the park but it seems the selection process is fairly arbitrary. If you want more info on the Jedi Training, check out http://www.mgmstudios.org/obi.html That being said, I'd still tell you to have him get dressed...it's just more fun! :)

Let us know if you have any more questions :)

Hi, I have a question also!

If I am going to MgM on the 27 of May, I KNOW THAT WILL BE STAR WARS weekend. Will the rides reflect that it will be Star Wars weekend or will thier be seperate activities and things for the people of Star Wars weekend?

Vikki,

The old ride that will be affected is Star Tours and WWTBAM when they have the Star Wars trivia sessions going. So Tower, Coaster and the rest should be operating normally.

It very well could. Waits during mid-May are pretty light to begin with and most of the people who come for SWW will spend most of their time at SWW only events. I doubt the other rides will be all walk-ons but I'd say some of the other attractions wont be as well-attended because of all the stuff going on at SWW.

It's really not that busy even with SWW going on.

Thanks for the Welcome!

Is the Star Tours ride actually different during SWW? Since we've rode on it 100's of times, we really don't need to ride it during the crowds if it's the same. Thanks again!

Star Tours is the same ride all the time. The only thing that is different is the fact that the people riding would probably be mostly Star Wars fans (Cheering for R2D2, etc)

It wouldn't hurt if GL would take some time to update the ride, just to give it some spice/variety. I love him, but do wish he would give it a little attention before he goes ahead and re-re-releases the original trilogy in 3D in 2007. All we're asking is give the ride a little TLC. :?

Lucas has said he wouldn't update ST until the prequels were done so hopefully now he'll be ready to do that.

The June SWW are always more busy than the may ones because more schools are out then. Remember though that the 50th starts May 5th though so may might be busier because I know they had some relaly cheap deals if you traveled around May 5th.
