The 5 Best Star Wars Character Meets at Disney
Today I want to share with you the 5 best Star Wars character meets for your next Disney vacation.
Before heading out to meet your favorite Star Wars character, here are a few important things to keep in mind.
Star Wars Character Meets Tips
- The majority of the characters in the park do sign autographs.However, Star Wars characters do not typically give autographs.
- Some of the Star Wars characters are “roaming characters” meaning they don’t accumulate lines. You just meet them out while touring Galaxy’s Edge.
- Star Wars characters are extremely “in character.” A meet with Darth Vader or Kylo Ren could possibly be scary or intimidating. They do belong to the dark side of the force, after all, just keep this in mind with smaller children.
- Star Wars character meets are all located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Now that you know what to expect, here’s who you’ll want to add to your must-see list!
BB-8 Star Wars Character Meet
Who doesn’t want to meet this popular droid from the latest trio of Star Wars movies?
BB-8 is an easy meet for everyone.
You’ll also be surprised to find out you can interact with him, it might be droid-speak but a cast member will be nearby to translate.
Chewbacca Star Wars Meet at Disney
Another fun character meet is Chewbacca, the friendly Wookiee.
Chewbacca might be a bit scary for some children given his height and appearance.
Darth Vader Character Meet
Next up we have Darth Vader who is another intimidating character meet.
Don’t expect any chit chat or friendly vibes here. The force is very strong with this one.
Kylo Ren at Galaxy’s Edge
Everyone visiting Galaxy’s Edge is treated as though they are guests on the planet of Batuu.
Therefore it is the norm to see regular Star Wars characters throughout the land.
Here is Kylo Ren accompanied by a few stormtroopers.
If you see him out, walk right up for an impromptu meet.
Make sure to get your camera or phone out quickly to capture the moment.
Rey Character at Disney
Lastly, we have a character who has become a beloved favorite over the past few years.
Rey Skywalker is friendly as they come and can often be found hanging out with Chewbacca or working on her ship the Millennium Falcon.
Make sure to check out Mom Resource’s guide on easy princess hairstyles to get a look similar to Rey’s or maybe even Princess Leia’s.
