How to Move a Star Wars X-wing Starfighter at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks
That is funny!
Neat little video. My 6 yo liked it. A general comment, that I don’t know where to put or send, you guys are doing a lot of great images, this video, the sunset on Spaceship Earth. And there’s an ever changing portfolio of great photos that show up at the top of the blog. Most of those I can identify most of the time. But occasionally there’s one that I wish I knew what it was. Could you possibly add either a short cut line to those photos or a link to some identifying info? E.g. one I’m seeing at the moment is statue of Walt and Mickey in front of Cinderella’s Castle at MK. But a few windows ago I saw an Astro Orbiter with saucers instead of rockets. I’m guessing that’s a Disneyland ride. And, for any who haven’t been on the ride or paid attention to the commercials, might not recognize what you see at the top of Mt. Everest in AK, just before starting to go backwards. Oh, but maybe it’s supposed to be a guessing game and test of one’s knowledge of all the parks’ attractions.
Paul, you are going to LOVE DVC, but the Star Wars weekends are fun, too! Make sure you catch the parade! .
We usually catch one of the last weekends – the crowds might be a bit worse on the weekends at Hollywood Studios, but if you can stay for a week, I think you will find that the crowds are nice at the rest of the parks during the week – at least that has been our experience!
Are Stars Wars weekends a really busy time? I was thinking of planning a trip then but not sure about crowds – how are these weekends compared to other times of the year?
We will be there for the opening weekend of Star Wars Weekend. Have been to Disney many times but never for this event. I can’t wait!!
I will in disney at the end of may for star wars weekends. This will be my 2nd time for the event and im very excited!! Except this year my nephew is comming with and I can not wait to see the look on his face when he gets to see all the storm troppers in the parade and his favorte characters!
From a country far far away… I´ll be there first weekend of june!!! Yeeeeeeaahhhhhhh!!!!
We’ll be there May 27th. I’m not sure what I’m looking more forward to, our first DVC trip or our first Starwars Weekend!!
