We hope you had a wonderful Monday, Orlando Toyota fans! We also hope you treated your mom to a lovely day yesterday, as well! If you follow our blogs, you know that we love to bring you the latest and greatest news from the Toyota world.
However, we’re also just as passionate about our community events—big or small! We think that the community events should be supported, no matter how big or small the business is. We’ve written about non-profit organization events to events that take place at a larger level.
We are in Central Florida (and we LOVE it!), so we think that writing about the magical world that is Disney World is only natural! Starting this Friday, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will hold their annual event, Star Wars Weekends! If you’re a Star Wars fan like we are, you know how exciting this is! Check out what you can expect from this multi-day event!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios holds Star Wars event
Star Wars is a pop culture phenomenon. It came out in theaters in 1977 and ever since then, people have celebrated it in their own ways. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has held their Star Wars Weekends since 1997 and every event has brought fun to those who attend. From May 16 (this Friday) to June 15, you’ll be able to experience intergalactic fun! Check out some of the events you can actually expect from this event:
- Symphony in the Stars: Disney is known for their fireworks, so it’s only natural that this event has a firework show! Set to music from the Star Wars saga, the show will make guests feel like they’re zooming through space with Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Millennium Falcon!
- Carbon Freeze Me: We’re pretty sure Han Solo WON’T appreciate this (as he had to actually deal with this)! Guests will be able to get their faces scanned and reproduced in carbonite!
- Star Wars Parade: What would a Disney event be without a parade? Guests will be able to see their favorite characters walking in a parade. We’re personally excited to see some Stormtroopers walking around in the Florida heat!
- Jedi Training Academy: The kiddos will absolutely LOVE this! Children learn to use the Force at this 20-minute training session. These Padawans (which is what Jedi in training are called) will practice using the Force in order to possibly defeat Darth Vader himself!
- Of course, one of the best parts of Star Wars Weekends is Star Tours! The ride (which is always open at the theme park) was recently redesigned, meaning that new material is being used for the ride! Remember: you can help Princess Leia; you’re her only hope!
- Another neat feature of this event is character dining! If you participate during this dining event, you’ll be able to see Mickey and Minnie dressed as a Jedi and Princess Leia, respectively! The whole gang will get dressed up, so check it out!
In addition to these events, limited edition merchandise will be available for purchase! This concludes on June 15, so make sure to check it out! Also, Mark Hamill (who played Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy) will be making his first appearance at the event!
