Looking for Star Wars Weekend 2011 information?

It's the time of year when we all start thinking about Star Wars Weekends (again) and Matt has written about when we can expect to hear more information about our beloved event.

You don't have to run a Hollywood Studios website to know when Star Wars Weekend very likely will be. The smart bet is for Star Wars Weekend to be held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 20 through June 11. We know this because typically Star Wars Weekends has been held on the last 2 weekends in May and the first two weekends in June. The exception was 2007 and 2008 when the event was held in June only (and I'm not counting 1997 when it was in February). Again, this is a guess and I wouldn't book anything you can't cancel until we know for sure, but I don't think the event starting May 20 is much of a gamble.
