Just returned from an evening of fun at Star Wars Weekends over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I don’t have time to write a full report this morning, but here are a few highlights. I arrived to late for most of the festivities, but was able to get into Darth’s Mall and catch the new Hyperspace Hoopla. Lots of great merchandise this year, both for the event and fresh from Star Wars too. There was a 10-minute queue just to get in to the store, then if you wanted photos, special merchandise, or a D-Tech figure, there were even more lines. Crazy.
That tall Darth Vader doll was flying off the shelves.
As usual the finale of the Star Wars Weekends Hyperspace Hoopla features some of the best dancing of the night. There are all the usual characters, plus a very special guest star at the very end – Jedi Mickey Mouse! Check out those dance moves! Mickey knows how to get the crowd going!
This was one of my favorite Hyperspace Hooplas since they moved it to the big stage. Do yourself a favor and stick around for the show this year.
If you’re attending Star Wars Weekends this year, make sure you allow a little extra time for parking. DHS seems to have finally outgrown its parking lot and cast members were directing cars through the lot to find open parking spaces.
