Disney would have to hire a lot more stormtroopers to have them show up at the resorts, not to mention getting more costumes. The only ones who are actual cast members are the ones on the roof at DHS for SWWs and at the Jedi Training Academy. The stormtroopers, biker scouts, snowtroopers, and clones in the parade were volunters from the 501st Legion, a Star Wars costuming fan group. They are not Disney cast members and are responsible for their own costume.

This. And all the troopers and Vader in the Christmas Parade were from the 501st Legion Florida Garrison.

The 501st is a great bunch of people.

I would love a new DVC property shaped like the Death Star. I'd make my reservation for cell block AA23 and hope to find a princess there...

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.

Awesome! I would make a reservation for cell block AA23 and hope to be rescued by not-my-brother Luke Skywalker.

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