Star Wars Weekends Character Dining Experiences

Hello Disney and Star Wars fans!!

The title of this post says it all and yes it is can have breakfast or dinner with Star Wars characters!!  How you ask and when???

Starting on May the 4th - for non Star Wars fans that is considered Star Wars day...get it "May the 4th be with you" - and running through June 15th - the end of Star Wars Weekends.  You can dine with either the Disney characters dressed up in their Star Wars gear OR Darth Vader and other dark side characters for breakfast.

This is a limited time event that I am praying becomes a regular event!  There are so few meals that feature more boyish or better yet not so princess heavy characters.

So about the meals.  First both take place in Hollywood Studios, park admission is required and characters are subject to change.

Jedi Mickey's Star Wars Dine at Hollywood and Vine (Dinner)
  • Location: Hollywood & Vine
  • This can be booked as just dinner OR a Fantasmic Dinner Package.  
  • Times: 4:15PM - park close between 8 & 9PM
  • It is a TWO credit meal on the Disney Dining Plan
  • Pricing: $54.99 per adult ($59.99 if used as part of the Fantasmic Package) and $32.99 per child ($36.99 if part of a Fantasmic Package)
  • Characters featured: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Chip & Dale in their Star Wars alter ego attire - Jedi Mickey, Leia Minnie, Stormtrooper Donald, Darth Goofy, Ewok Chip& Dale
  • Your meal includes a digital photo of the party with Ewok Chip & Dale on a commemorative PhotoPass card.
  Star Wars Dine-In Galactic Breakfast
  • Location: SciFi Diner
  • Times: 8am-12pm
  • It is a TWO credit meal on the Disney Dining Plan
  • Pricing: $47.99 for an adult, $29.99 for a child
  • Characters: Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Jawa, Stormtroopers, and Greedo
  • Bonus of the meal - a Darth Vader meet and greet after you check in!
  • SciFi diner is known for their Drive in movie theater theme and playing classic scifi movies while guests dine.  This meal will feature Star Wars movie scenes!
  • Your meal also includes a digital photo of the party on a commemorative PhotoPass card.
How to book: Well if you booked your trip with me - just message, text or call me and tell me what you want and I will take care of it.  If not you will need to call 407-WDW-DINE and make reservations.  It is not available (at least it was not today 3/26) for online booking.

Important Note:  You can meet these characters during the actual Star Wars weekends throughout the parks.  However, these meals are offered during the week as well as Star Wars Weekends AND start before Star Wars Weekends begin May 16th.  So it opens up the Star Wars fun for more guests that may have otherwise missed it!  And while you can meet some of these characters throughout the park during Star Wars Weekends the lines can be long and HOT, so this offers guests another more convenient way to meet some favorite characters!

This just adds to some of the changes coming to Star Wars Weekends this year - it started with adding a fifth weekend, followed by the announcement that Hyperspace Hoopla had been discontinued, but was being replaced with Symphony in the Stars Firework show!  I am sure we will start to hear of more changes too, so far they have been for the better - minus the loss of Hoopla for some.  Mark Hammill - Luke Skywalker is the only celebrity to be announced so far.  He will be there for Weekend Four.

Star Wars Weekends begins May 16th and runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday through June 15th.  Star Wars Weekends is included with your park admission to Hollywood Studios.

May the Force Be With You!!
