    I forgot to mention something. in order to participate in this event you need to submit this through either the 501st legion or the rebel legion, as long as you have a screen accurate costume and a famous costume you can participate in the parade, Almost forgot; the costume needs to be 1 character per parade, let me explain if Disney is going to present the character on the parade you can not do it. i.e 1 Darth Vader, 1 Darth Maul, 1 Boba Fett. But if the star wars universe got more than 1 i.e. Stormtroopers, Jedi knights, X wing Pilots, Rebel Troopers you will not have any problems. sorry no expanded universe characters. any more questions PM me or post them and I will answer them.

    Do you have to be an adult, or could I do it?

    Thanks for the info Blaze. I was going to start on my Leia award ceremony costume but I'll put that on the back burner and hope to start on a Jedi Knight since that would seem to guarantee a place in the parade.

    JediAce, It was great meeting you and your parents and I don't think you have to be an adult, Blaze would know.

    You have to be 18 and over, is Disney policy, something about insurance policy.

    Actually the 18 and over is a requirement for membership in both the RL and the 501st, it is not just a Disney thing.

    hey arthur, TC3126 here welcome to the boards. I thought that bones said that you had to be 18 to walk on the parade, maybe I was wrong but you still have to be 18 to join the clubs and if I'm not mistaken you have to be a member of either club to walk the parade right?

    You have to be a member to walk the parade? Guess I better finish up the jedi costume I have been working on and get some pics submitted to RL.

    I am doing a Madame Jocasta Nu - got the actual outfit complete just need to work on the tabards - will probably do fabric paint instead of embroidery.

    I wonder if Disney will have anyone dressed like her? I can always swap out the long skirt and wear black pants to make her young Jocasta Nu instead!

    You are correct sir. You must be 18 to join either of the clubs and you must be a member of one or the other (or in some cases both)in order to march in the parade ergo you must be 18 either way (Disney does also have us sign a release as well so you must be an adult in order to make it legally binding).
    I believe that Disney also insists on us being over 18 due to the fact we assemble in a backstage area and their policy prohibits under 18 from going into those areas (to keep from ruining the magic I think).
