Star Wars Weekends kicked off yesterday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and as Gary Buchanan, Social Media Manager and Disney’s resident Skyguy likes to say, it has people “happier than C3PO in an oil bath.”
Every weekend through June 9, 2013, guests can rub elbows with Star Wars celebrities, meet characters from the galaxy far, far away, collect all kinds of exclusive Star Wars-inspired merchandise (you can cast yourself in carbonite, diehards), and even face off against some of the most feared Sith around.
If it’s your first time attending the annual celebration, it can be a little overwhelming, despite all the rampant awesome.
You definitely don’t want to miss anything, but where should you start?
Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe, and the voice of Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ Ahsoka Tano (she also voices Mia the Bluebird from Disney Junior’s Sofia the First!), sat down with me to share her top 10 tips for first time attendees.
