Star Wars Weekend noob questions

You can find out special event times on a special map that will be available as you enter the park, but characters and stormtroopers are wandering the park all day, except for when the actual parade is, which is usually about 3. There is also several talk shows and behind the scenes videos going on during the day. The SWW festivities come to a close at 6 when they have the Hyperspace Hoopla on the stage right in front of the Star Tours ride. This is really one of Disney's best put together special events, and it's great to see the Power of the Force and the Magic of Disney Working together, so this really is a must do. I hope that answers some of your questions

The parade for SWW usually starts 11ish depending on what time they decided on this year.
And the Hoopla is usually around 7pm, I'm usually exhausted by then and don't tend to stick around for it. :sleep: :oops:

WDWNooby, my kids and I love this event, you should check out the stormtroopers at the entrance in the morning, you get to see plenty of SW characters for pics and autographs all around the park, the schedule doesn't come out until the very first weekend, They announce the celebrities attending about a month before the first weekend.

You can find old times schedules from previous years here: http://sww.studiosce.../events-planned
At the very least, when Weekend 1 schedule starts, we'll have a schedule posted online so when your trip rolls around, you'll know what the schedule will be already.

The Dark Side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be ...unnatural.

As for crowds, just be sure to be at park opening and emplyo a decent touring plan and I think you'll do well.
Also, don't forget about our SWW dinner event, which will be occuring during your trip: http://sww.studioscentral.com/main/content...-other-sww-fans
