Star Wars Characters

Leaving tonight on the red eye flight. Hurrah!

Just a quick question. I know that the Star Wars weekends will not be going on while we are at WDW, but are any of the characters out and about regularly? Also, is the Jedi Training by Star Tours still in operation? Thanks!

1. Re: Star Wars Characters

Here's what I found on 'allears':

"NEW! The Jedi Training Academy, a show usually performed during the annual Star Wars Weekends at the Disney-MGM Studios, is presented daily beginning March 26 through June 11, 2006. Young Jedi Knights are selected at random to be instructed by the Jedi Master on how to use the light saber made popular in the Star Wars movies. Then they face the ultimate challenge -- a duel with the Dark Side! Held in front of the Star Tours attraction, times for the show are:

11:10am, 12pm, 12:50pm, 1:40pm, 2:30pm, 3:20pm, 5:30pm, 6:20pm"

"Characters from the Star Wars films, such as Chewbacca, can sometimes be seen milling about outside of the Star Tours attraction. You will also find lots of Disney Characters at a variety of Meet and Greet locations throughout the Studios. Check your daily Guide Map for times and locations."
