    How can I meet Darth Vader

    I know he comes out periodically for the children to swing plastic sticks at him. Is there ever an opportunity for meeting this ruthless caped cyborg malefactor?

    Re: How can I meet Darth Vader

    Other than at Jedi training... I've never seen Vader walking around Disneyland.

    Often, you will see a pair of Stormtroopers wandering around Tomorrowland (usually in front of Star Tours), but I've never seen Vader.

    I'm sure he has to report back to the Emperor, on a regular basis. Also, over-seeing the construction of a Death Star probably keeps him quite busy. I doubt he has time to 'mingle' with rebels like us...

    Re: How can I meet Darth Vader

    If the Jedi Training Academy gets cancelled for whatever reason (weather or malfunction) they do substitute a meet and greet with the Jedi, Maul, Vader and the Stormtroopers where you can get photos, but no autographs.
    This was told to us by one of the Academy Cast Members after asking about meet and greet opportunities last February.
    Peter Pan: "You know, your hair is on fire."
    Me: "Yes. It happened after a recent trip to Neverland."
    Peter Pan: "Well, you can dunk your head in the pond behind us, if you want."

    Whenever the Jedi Training Academy gets cancelled due to rain. Maul and Vader DO sign autographs.

    Re: How can I meet Darth Vader

    I thought he stayed out for meet and greet after the Training Academy? Maybe it's just the storm troopers. I know for sure I've seen troopers taking photos with guests after a couple shows, but it may only be for a short time.

    Random thought but it depends on "when" you visit Disneyland.

    Easter Weekend WonderCon is across the street at Anaheim Convention Center. A TON of people Cosplay and chances of seeing Vader are pretty high!

    Re: How can I meet Darth Vader

    I have never seen Vader walking around, even when the Jedi Academy was not running, but I have seen Stormtroopers quite a few times. I noticed they usually stay on the side with Space Mountain and Star Tours and don't venture too far.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.
