Subscribing.

Will be going for the first time for my birthday - 24th / 25th May. Looks like I have picked a busy weekend (we will be coming straight from a week on the Fantasy) but can't wait to experience it for myself.

Looking forward to hearing all about it

Bummer! We just booked May 9-18 and I was really hoping I would finally make my first SWW. Maybe we will get lucky!

Yulilin,
Can I make a suggestion for the thread? If possible can you put some links into the first post for things like the character priority post earlier and other useful posts that you and others put together? That way there is an easy reference from the first post.

I'd say organize it by different topics...Meeting Characters, Actor Autographs & Shows, Event, Merchandise, etc...

As long as last year's thread got I think it would be very helpful to have some shortcuts to weed through the discussion, especially for people who come late to the discussion.

Could you tell me a little more about the Padawan challenge and JTA during SWW? My son loves JTA but I`ve not heard of the other.:-D

The PMC is done on the main stage 2x per day. One show normally covers the clone wars and the other whichever movie is the 'theme' for that year's SWW.

The kids all line up and are given 2 light sabers to answer questions with and are eliminated if they get a question wrong but in the end they are all brought back and answer the last question (super easy, everyone gets it right).

Here's a video from a few years back.

We will be at Disney from June 1st - June 15th. Hoping to catch two different weekends. We went to Star Wars weekends for our first time in June 2011, but were not prepared for the size of crowds. I also made the mistake of trying to do regular HS stuff and Star Wars stuff at the same time. We still had a fun time though. This time I have a different plan of attack. I am doing one day "bad guys" and one day "good guys". We will do the reg HS stuff on a totally different day.

Definitely following along! I love SWW! UNofrtunately after going the past 2 years DH has decided he wants to try the F&W Festival in 2014, so no SWW for me . Like I said though, I'm still going to follow along to see what's going on this year!

Here's my info from 2013 that included all character locations and schedules for the year. It will obviously be updated in 2014.

I'll share some photos of the new characters that I got to meet too.

Subscribing! My husband will be receiving a Disney SWW vacation as a Christmas gift and it'll be our first time! Any help would be great!

Great Idea I'll update the first post with everything each time I get new information.

In some sort of related news, Star Wars the Clone Wars final season will air in early 2014, here's an article about that: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/...-in-early-2014

And in more related news: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/liv...+-+Top+Stories)

Maybe related to SWW is more wishful thinking, but with Clone Wars being over I expect Star Wars Rebels to take over Behind the Force show. Rebels has no set date to start airing, it's being advertised for Fall of 2014 on Disney XD so I would think that Disney will want to hyper up the excitment of it by having it featured during SWW
