I would love to have the dates for Star Wars Weekend at WDW. I usually need about 9-10 months to plan.

We attended Star Wars Weekend and my son was able to do the Jedi Training. It was great to watch him battle Darth Vader. He was also stormed by the Storm Troopers where he had to use the force to defeat them. He had such a good time and we have memories to cherish forever.
