Hey Darth Vader, Let’s Take A Selfie!

Image

yup. That’s me, taking a selfie with Darth Vader himself! It was one of my friends birthday weekend celebration and she chose our happy place, Disney!

For a few weekends starting in May through June, Star Wars takes over Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends.

Mickey, Minnie, and the gang dress up as different characters and start the once daily parade featuring the actors that are there for that weekend, there is also a group called the 501 Legion in full costume as well! The parade space fills up quickly but we got lucky with a decent spot!

There were a few actors from various Star Wars projects there (including the guy who played Chewy!) which you can get fast passes for autographs or interview sessions and this year they introduced a brand new fireworks show called “Symphony in the Stars” only for SW weekends!

They also have various spots for pictures with the famous characters (C3PO, Darth, Boba, etc) which we ended up standing in line for and poor Darth Vader was a trooper, everyone was taking selfies with him and just messing with him to get good photos (I happen to love mine) and they also have characters walking around for photo ops and interactions

We rode Rock’n Rollercoaster, Star Tours, and the Great Movie Ride… tried both of the SW themed adult beverages, and just had an overall day of fun at our happy place! While I’m not a Star Wars fan, it wasn’t an unbearable day 🙂
