    Good question! I totally forgot about SWW, when does it start? I'll be in WDW the weekend of 6/6-6/8... I hope it will be by then!

    Well, according to the pin release schedule... the first release is on 6/6/08 so my guess is that will be the first Star Wars Weekend. It usually starts the first weekend in June. And I'll be there!!



    [edit]
    Well, I just got the Summer '08 edition of the Mickey Monitor today and it says that SWW are June 6-June29, 2008. Yeah, baby, yeah!

    Some of the smaller figures are pictures in the new ToyFair magazine. Along with the Muppets figures. I'm still curious if there is anything else!

    Re: Star Wars Weekends 2008 Question

    By coincidence, our WDW trip this year coincides with Star Wars weekend.

    While it's interesting I think I'd rather spend my time doing the Disney thing. What effect do the Star Wars weekend have on queue length in the rest of the park. If all the Star Wars fans are spending the day in line for signatures or merchandise does that free up the rest of the park at all?

    Most SWW visitors are there to see the characters/shop for merchandise and participate in SWW events. So while there are crowds for those things (not affecting you) they also would not be there without SWW, so they wouldn't necessarily be "missing" from other places in the park (does that make sense?? LoL).

    In other words, the regular attractions won't be any less crowded. In fact the overflow of SWW visitors can be felt everywhere, just by fact that the parks are a little more busy: e.g. SW fans may want to drop in on ToT because they're already in the park.

    As a SW fan I think it's fun to be there around SWW just to see all the characters roaming DHS. It really is the only way to see most of these costumed characters anywhere.
