Lando Calrissian lands at Disney's Star Wars Weekend

This weekend is the last of the Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios and it brings Mr. Cool himself, Lando Calrissian, played by the always smooth Billy Dee Williams. He will be packing his two weapons of choice — a blaster pistol and a devastating smile — and will be signing and posing for pictures with fans who secure a Fastpass. The sci-fi fan fest also has a Hyperspace Hoopla stage show, Jedi Training Academy, parades and meet-and-greet sessions. Other appearances this weekend include Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca, and Tom Kane, the voice of Yoda in The Clone Wars. Admission is $90 for adults and $84 for children 3-9, 2 and younger free. Disney's Hollywood Studios, Hollywood Boulevard, Lake Buena Vista. (407) 939-6244. 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Sunday.

  5. Drink of the week: Yalumba Y Series Viognier, South Australia 2016

    Bars & Spirits

    I've long wondered why viognier isn't a more popular wine. With its seductive floral aromas and luscious fruit flavors, it's one of my favorite whites.
