  • [Question] Are there ever Star Wars characters at Disneyland?

    It looks like DL has a watered down (putting it nicely) version of the May the 4th Limited Time Magic that WDW is getting and is only offering merchandise. Is it possible that there could be characters, though? I know they have the Jedi training, but do Star Wars characters otherwise make appearances in Disneyland?

      Two Stormtroopers were out in front of Star Tours around park opening last week when we were there. We ended up there first thing a few times over the week, and saw them each time.

        Do any of them sign autographs?

            At one point fairly soon after the new Star Tours opening, R2D2, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, and Stormtroopers could all be found in Tomorrowland. The only characters that I've seen recently would be the Stormtroopers and occasionally R2D2.

              You need to watch for the"Unofficial Star Wars Day". While not officially a park sponsored event they "tolerate it" as all the Star Wars fan organizations show up.

                I've seen Stormtroopers and Darth Vader before. I also have seen the Jedi Knights walking around shortly after the Jedi Academy shows.
                Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

                  I always see Stormtroopers in front of Space Mountain, or Star Tours.

                    Last year Disneyland had Boba Fett and Capt. Rex but not anymore and what I hear they do not sign autographs it has to do with something with copy rights. Other then that I've never seen any Star Wars characters for meet and greet other then raining days. And that be Vader and 2 Stormtroopers.

                      Still waiting for Leia to show up at the Fantasy Faire.

                        We saw the stormtroopers when we went in Jan. I thought they were so cute how they interacted with my 2 yr old. They were over in the FP area for ST. My son was looking at them and one of them came over and gave him knuckles. It was cute to see this tough stormtrooper giving a toddler knuckles. Then he went over to the FP machine and was trying to figure out how it worked. I liked seeing them interacting instead of just posing for pictures.

                          Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise and surrounding materials, I am willing to bet that "copyright issues" wont be a problem anymore and so they can change the old procedures IF they want to. I'd like to see it happen during special days. Maybe not all the time, but like say on "May the 4th" or other Star Wars related days.

                            Don't forget the force is always out and about as well!!! Remember it's our ally and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. I don't believe it will sign autographs though but that's just a guess.
