Since I was already down for the opening of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train , we decided to spend Friday of my most recent trip at DHS for Star Wars Weekend III.
First things first. Merchandise and character meet and greets. I had to go check out Darth’s Mall. (Hahahha love the pun.) It was pretty cool seeing the remnants of the original Studio Backlot tour.
After meeting Darth Goofy and Storm trooper Donald, I bought the SSW14 pin, and Annual Passholder shirt.
There was this weird really tall guy wandering around in black armor. He looks oddly familiar… Like my father? 😉
Since it was a Star Wars Weekend, of course I had to ride Star Tours!
The final (and my personal favorite) of the day…..
Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade
Can I just quickly talk about the 501st Legion Florida Garrison? It’s a pretty cool organization. Their website’s mission statement: “…The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work…”

This year’s Star Wars Weekends was awesome! While I’m not the biggest Star Wars fan, and didn’t do everything they had to do, I still had a blast. Loved seeing a parade in DHS. I remember seeing the Disney Stars and Motors Parade as a kid, and this parade brought back lots of memories.
Did you go to Star Wars Weekends this year? What was your favorite part? The trivia contests? Cosplaying? Meeting stars and characters?
