expecting to get autographs, GET THERE EARLY, about 1 hour to
30 minutes before park opening. If you are a Disney hotel guest,
the park may let you in around 30 minutes before official opening.
NOTE: 2004 will be featuring a FASTPASS
system, instead of wristbands.
If you plan to participate in the Trivia contest, SIGN UP early
in the morning (preferably after getting your wristbands), as
they only allow 50 players a day. Sign up booths are on the way
to Star Tours.
If you can, STAY at a Disney Resort. It is much easier to get
up in the morning, and you get some advantages (see notes above).
You won't know how important that is until you get there!
HEAT!!! You know the hell of Amusement Parks? Just because this
is Disney doesn't make it any different!
DO WACKY STUFF
that will get you noticed. (not necessarily getting in a fight
or anything) but do unusual stuff like wearing your hair in princess
leia buns or painting your face like Darth Maul. There are not
many people who do this, and it will get you noticed by not only
the stars but other fans.
NOTE: You can also bug the stormtroopers at the Q&A sessions.
Not only is it fun, but it draws attention ;)
GO TO THE
BATHROOM often. You never know who you'll see while coming out
of there... (I bumped into Carrie Fisher and her "bodyguards").
Also, at the bathrooms across from Star Tours, watch near the
Star Tours "green" doors, and you might get a glimpse at the stars
while entering their "Secret Areas."
GET GOOD SPOTS
AT THE MOTORCADE. Pictures are hard to get so make sure to get
good spots where you're not stuck behind some lady who stands
in the middle of the parade route, blocking good Kodak moments.
parts of the park. The park itself has a lot of neat stuff, so
don't just stay around the Star Wars area.
OF TIME! Make sure to analyze and study the events and times so
you won't miss out on anything special!
get JEALOUS! Some Star Wars Freaks there will have the coolest
collectibles ever. KEEP CALM and don't attack!
show and ride lines are usual but if you want to buy Star Wars
Souvenirs at Tatooine Traders BE PREPARED! It can take up to 1
hour to check out, if not more! (We came up with the theory that
the best time to buy stuff is during the motorcade and QandA session
but I wouldn't miss that...)
NOTE: Best times to visit Tatooine Traders are RIGHT after
presentations such as the Q&A session, and the Disney parade
in the afternoon (NOT THE STAR WARS PARADE AT NOON, since it
ends right next to the store).
For some rides,
you can use Disney FAST PASS. Visit our TICKET
INFO page for more information.
NOTE: This system will ALSO be used for autographs, so please
get acquainted with it!
7pm to ride STAR TOURS. The lines take about 2 minutes to get
through since everyone is leaving.
an INDIANA JONES fan, and want to go to the stunt show, try to
get there early so that you can become an extra!
