Storm Troopers in the Christmas Parade.

Would be great to see them at the resorts.

They are typically in the parade at Hollywood Studios during the Star Wars weekends in June

They were also standing guard on the roof of the main gate at DHS when we were there on a Star Wars weekend. One of the coolest things I've seen. :BigKidGrin:

I used to see them outside of Star Tours fairly regularly last year. But maybe that was only for the Star Tours reopening.

I hope that Disney keeps the Star Wars characters and doesn't turn them all cutesy. At least not more than they already have.

I want a true cantina to dine at! Plus a whole land or even park based on Star Wars would be nice.

I want a CS location for no other reason than to call it Admiral Snackbar.

Not holding my breath for any resort appearances or character meals by the Star Wars crew. Would love to see a Cantina open up in DHS though...far more than I want to see another Carsland. I love Carsland...but it already exists.

i'd rather see them throw money that way other than Avatard. Star Wars is a proven moneymaker.

This. As both a Disney fan and stockholder, I couldn't agree more.

Agreed. It would be awesome now that Disney owns the franchise if they would do character meals IMHO.

Actually, it would be awesome if they'd open a 5th gate based solely on Star Wars...

They would own Orlando for years.
