Scenes from the Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade at Hollywood Studios

One of the highlights of Star Wars Weekends is the "Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade," a short but spectacular parade of characters down Hollywood Boulevard.

Among the classic Star Wars characters — and Disney characters in their Star Wars garb — are more than 150 volunteers from the Florida Garrison of the 151st Legion, an all-volunteer "Imperial Costuming organization."

Here are a few of our favorites from this year's motorcade (Photos by Mary and Steven Liebman):
