Where are all the "when is SWW this year?" posts?? We're already over a week into 2011, they are usually started by now ;) We're trying to figure out whether or not to plan for Memorial Day weekend since I just found out the kids have a few extra days off around it (if we don't use any snow days....fingers crossed!!)

Haha, yes it is "that time of year", isn't it? Well, for anyone who's curious, we typically hear SWW dates in late January or early February so we still have time.

I know many of us will be down for Weekend 1 this year.

In the current Eyes & Ears it just says that Star Wars Weekends will be held in May and June, so I think it's safe to say that they will stick with previous years

I'm anxious to see what they plug this year. Obviously the Updated Star Tours will be a big center piece that will be easy for them. I'm just hoping there is more than just plugging the next season of The Clone Wars.

I can confirm that two of the weekends are 5/28-5/29 and 6/4-6/5. I was on the phone today with a CM making some changes to my reservation and he commented that Star Wars weekends were running for both weekends that I'm there.

If I get a chance tomorrow I'll call the travel agents line and see if they'll tell me.

I called the agents' line this morning and the CM I spoke with said she didn't have dates yet. She tried to look in 3 different systems and said that's marketing who decides and tells them closer to booking dates. My "client" was disappointed not to get the official word. ;)

That's odd because when I spoke with the CM yesterday he said he had a pamphlet with the dates. I didn't pay close attention as he rattled off all the dates other than to note that it was on for both weekends I'm there, but I'm pretty sure he said it started the weekend before I arrive which would be 5/21-5/22 and ends the weekend after I leave, which would be 6/11-6/12. I think there were a few other dates in there too, like Monday, the 30th. I do recall him saying that Billy Dee Williams would be there on one of my dates, I think it was the 28th.

I'm wondering if your CM was looking at 2010 information? I could see them knowing the dates potentially but definitely not the celeb list.

Maybe he was. I really didn't get into a big conversation with him about it. The conversation was more like oh, you're going to be with us during Star Wars weekends. Its going on (and then he rattled off all the dates) and Billy Dee Williams is scheduled to be there on the ______ (I think he said the 28th). The conversation then turned to some other things that I had questions about. I'm not even sure I'll go to DHS on either weekend as I'm traveling with my 75 year old mom and I have a feeling it will be really busy during those weekends. While we both enjoyed the Star Wars movies, neither of us are huge fans.

I'm pulling for this to be Harrison Ford's year (which is as probable as Fantasmic being shown twice a day every day again and Drew Carey playing to full capacity crowds). Truthfully, since I don't watch Clone Wars I'm hoping it will be more movie focused this year.

since we now know that Star Tours 2 is opening on May 20th, I wonder if that means the 21st will be the first weekend

That was my guess. Meg Crofton said Star tours would be open "just in time for Star Wars Weekends"

Just thought I would share what she told me.

That CM you spoke to was definately looking at last year's info.

No dates have been confirmed yet. But you can probably bank on the last 2 weekends in May, 1st two in August.

DEFINATELY NO GUESTS have been confirmed yet. So any rumors you are hearing? Take them with a grain of salt. Seriously, any rumors that are floating around out there have a lot more to do with wishful thinking than anything else.
