STAR WARS WEEKENDS

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


With the popular Star Wars Weekends just a few short weeks away, here is some information on what visitors to the weekend can expect!

Visitors will run into tons of different celebrities and characters, including Ewoks, Wookiees, Stormtroopers, Jawas and so many more! Autographs will be given out and there will be tons of limited edition merchandise for purchase.

At the end of each day during Star Wars Weekends, there is a Hyperspace Hoopla! Show.  Some of the popular stars will get up and dance.

If you will be down in Florida during one of these weekends, I would highly recommend heading to Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends!
