  • Reese,

    The hours may be slightly different this year, but the past two years when I went, he was out almost all day, except when the motorcade is going on and I think he left for the day about two hours before the park closed to get ready for Hyperspace Hoopla. When you get there, look for the people in Star Wars Weekends shirts with cast member name tags. 99% of them will have time guides and will be able to tell you exactly when he is out.

    Hope that helps!

  • Are there certain times to get photos with Darth Vadar? If so where can I find out when the times are or will they be posted in HS? I’m a huge fan of Darth and want a photo with him.

  • Will the promotional images be released as wallpapers?

    • Evan,
      Stay tuned. We are looking at ways to share the images with fans. We are glad you like them!
