Star Wars in Downtown Disney

It was a Star Wars Weekend at Downtown Disney when we visited Disney World in June.

This may not excite you,
but it was a source of HUGE excitement for my boys.

Because we bumped into Star Wars characters all over the place.

And my sons lectured me with Star Wars trivia the whole time.

I always liked Princess Leia's unique hair do.
Apparently it took about two hours with a hair dresser to achieve them.

And they were originally modeled off of Hopi Indian Women.

Did you know that Wookiees (like Chewbacca pictured here) live a really long time?
He was 200 in Return of the Jedi.

The actor who originally played him was 7' 3" tall!
The Chewbacca vpoce was made from the recording mix of walrus, camels, bears, tigers and badges.

I think this scary lady was a bounty hunter.
I know a real life bounty hunter.
He drives an old cop car and carries a gun.

Remy & his cousin are on an Imperial Star Fleet Ship! Yikes!
Remy, do NOT go over to the Dark Side!!

Darth Maul is CREEPY.

I don't know, but those Storm Troopers are kind of cute.

Have you ever made out with a man in a helmet?!

We went on Star Wars Weekend last year. It was a blast for my 7 year old son---not so much for my three daughters. But WDW is always fun!

This may not excite me??? I am so bloomin' jealous I can't see straight. You are SO lucky to have gotten to be there for that.

SERIOUSLY jealous.
