New Star Wars Character Dining Experience

As many of you know, I and my family are huge Star Wars fans. We are attending the first weekend this year. It was rumbled about last night on Twitter and Facebook that there would be two new dining experiences that involved characters...Star Wars characters. There is a breakfast at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater with Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, Boba Fett, etc. There is another dining experience for dinner with Mickey Mouse and the gang dressed in their Star Wars costumes at Hollywood & Vine.

I set my alarm clock and after an hour and a half on hold was able to book both for May 16th. I will make sure and have some reviews in store for this new experience. It makes me wonder if this isn't a test to see how much folks want a Star Wars dining experience offered year round. Excitement is in the air.

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

I really, really want them to serve blue Bantha milk.

We will sense a disturbance in the force if there is no blue milk for breakfast. I'm just happy we won't have to wait in lines for these characters. Eating and characters entertaining the kids are a parent's dream. Two words make this even sweeter: Air conditioning.

Smart move on Disney's part, using Star Wars Weekends as a testing ground for SW themed character dining as well as potential food and beverages to be served once the expansion has happened.

Sounds like a wonderful thing to have Darth Vadar breathing down your neck or giving you choking grip while you're downing a chocolate milkshake.

I just wish I can see Jabba The Hut with food drooling out of his mouth.

I think I would rather have Pizza the Hut and Yogurt at breakfast rather than Jabba. Remember, "Merchandising!".

It would be cool! I hope it is a regular offer. There's only so many dinners you can have with princesses. Plus, disney needs to find a way to really involve all the little boys... no fair the parents of boys get off so easy
