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

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.

I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with you on this one. I like both but Star Wars blows away Star Trek IMO.

Woops. I moved this thread to the theme parks board because i didn't see the last word of your post. Hopefully a mod over there will move it back.

And it raises a bigger question, has anyone seen ANY Star Wars characters at any resorts yet?

1) Won't EVER happen.
2) Normal characters get hit and struck.
3) Storm Troopers would be a prime target.
4) Kids, and some adults, would love to knock them over.
5) This is the same reason Green Army Men are not at resorts.

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.
