"I Find Your Lack Of Faith Disturbing"

The Star Wars Weekends at the Disney's Hollywood Studios are always funfilled and action packed - a must for any fan of Star Wars, and especially those of us who love Star Wars AND Disney! I was lucky enough to attend one of the weekends in May 2005, and it's an experience I'll never forget. If you'd like to hear a bit more about the weekends, there's a great discussion on the last WDW Radio Show Podcast (June 1st 2008 show) between Master Lou and Jedis George (Imaginerding) and Glenn (Passamaquoddy). One of the highlights for me was getting to meet Mr Potato Head himself - or Darth Tater, as he called himself at the time. I mean, it's not everyday that you get to meet such a famous, and handsome, tater!

Of course, one of the main excitements of the weekend is how characters from Star Wars intermingle with the guests. Especially the Storm Troopers. I seem to remember how difficult it was to get this picture with the Storm Trooper - I had to promise to never utter Darth Vader's name in vain. Luckily I had my fingers crossed at the time...

I just hope they don't read this blog...uh-oh!

haha! Our past few trips we keep accidently landing at Disney on Star Wars weekend. As someone who is not a very good sci-fi fan the enthusiasm for this event for event goers scares me a little bit. haha ok, a LOT.

We did manage to avoid it this trip. Can you imagine that it was Star Wars weekend, early entry, and "Gay Day's" at Hollywood studios on the SAME day!!! I heard the standby for Toy Story Mania was 130 min. on the SIGN less than an hour after park opening.
