List of SWW characters for 2009? Looking for locations & times!

I'm wondering if anyone has a list of the times/locations for the SWW characters like the one that was posted here last year. That was a great help to me in planning our meetings with the characters and I would love to do the same again this year. I know which characters are going to be there, but knowing that character XX started at 9 and character YY didn't start until 10:30 was really helpful.

I read Glenn's blog from last weekend and it mentioned that the CM wouldn't let him look at the character meet & greet list (!! - so ridiculous - like it's a state secret), but I'm wondering if anyone else has compiled a list of if there's a plan to do that.

Thanks for any info you could provide - we don't go until the last weekend, so I'm hoping that info pops up in the next 2 weeks.

like Glenn said the times for each character is "not available" to us, mere mortals, but I will try and get more info this Saturday, see if I can come up with a tentative list and I'll post anything here. I know that the Disney characters are in rotation, every 20min or so, same as Chewbacca and Ewoks, and Luke, Leia and R2D2.

Thanks a lot - I'd go by last year's info, but I already saw one post that said Darth Maul was starting early - like 9:30 or 9:40 AM and last year he didn't start until after noon on the day we were there. I'm guessing most will be the same/similar, but I MUST have my plan!

Yeah, I think I'm going to forgo the SWW the Friday I'm at the Studios, since the CMs are being very unsupportive for this event. Sometimes I hate some CMs. :D

And this is why Lucas needs to make his own Star Wars theme park.

I tried to get a character list from the CMs but they wouldn't give it out. They will, however, tell you where and when any character(s) will be if you ask at the information desk.

Thanks Matt! I've been pulling little bits and pieces from a few trips reports and a few posts on the DIS and some photos I've seen. Doesn't really help with times though.

Your list last year was very, very appreciated for our first SWW - my kids had a great time getting their photos taken in the morning - no lines at all - we quit once the lines started to really build. I was hoping to do the same this year.

The CM can't let you see the list they have because it's not appropriate for Guests to see. It would not support character integrity, lets just say that.

That said, I don't know why the info isn't printed somewhere, I thought it was supposed to be with the guidemap. Any of the people in the black star wars polo shirts should be able to tell you where and when the characters will be somewhere. Also, if you stop at Guest Relations when you get in they should also be able to tell you.

Seeing Darth Vader's itinerary interferes with his image eh? :D Makes sense. I suspect the awe he inspires would be reduced if he was constantly looking at his blackberry.

Not to be a troublemaker with less than 5 posts here, but that's just silly. I can't really see how knowing in advance that the Jedi Council meets from 9-11, and 12:30-2 near Prime Time (made up times and location obviously) is interfering with the characters integrity. I'm aware that we can find out once we're there, but I wanted to get the info in advance.

But discussion of the schedule did remind me that I have connection to a friend of Cinderella and Mary Poppins - maybe I'll see if she knows anything, but she doesn't spend much time in the Studios.

I came as a guest on Saturday last weekend and anytime i asked when a character was coming out in the area they pulled out their schedule right in front of me.

The past years a character and merchandise schedules were readily available... idk why it isn't this year

ALright I went to the infor desk and teh CM's got the list out I asked if I could copy it and she said that that was OK, I asked her why they didn't have copies of the schedule for guest and her response was that that then she wouldn't have anything to do all day.

No problem, any other questions just let me know, I'll be there on Friday to try and get a FP for both Dave Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch.

I want to add a couple of things about meeting the SW characters. If you're going to meet Luke, Leia, or R2 they can and will rotate so you will get at least one of the 3. Just because R2 is there when you get in line doesn't mean he will be there when your turn comes. They will not allow you to wait for the character you want. R2 is subject to elements such as weather and sometimes he shows up late because he needs an oil bath.

However, I believe you will be allowed to wait for the Disney SW characters. CMs told me that you would be allowed to wait. I also think that the schedule for the Disney SW characters switches in the afternoon. I was told that Leia Minnie was out every hour on the hour and Jedi Mickey every 20 minute mark on the hour.

In my experience, the CMs inside the park were very, very good at telling me when characters were scheduled to appear. As always it should be remembered that there's only "one" Mickey Mouse, so if he's in his sorcerer garb at the Magic of Disney Animation, you won't be able to find him in his Jedi robes at the same time.
