Other activities include the "Padawan Mind Challenge," allowing kids under 12 to test their wits before the Jedi Council; "Legends of the Force," a motorcade featuring favorite Star Wars celebrities; and "Jedi Training Academy," where young Jedi wannabes can learn lightsaber battle techniques and test their newfound skills against Darth Vader or Darth Maul.
In addition, Lucasfilm and Disney's Hollywood Studios will offer a host of surprises throughout the four weekends.
