VIDEO: A Very Star Wars Weekend at Disney + Photo Gallery

New_Logo

If you’re an adult Star Wars fan, then you should take the opportunity to visit Disney Hollywood Studios.

Not once the “Star Wars Land” is finished, right now.

So I was at Disney Last Weekend. (Yay!) And had an absolutely amazing StarWarsy time! While a good portion of the park was closed for construction, I still had an absolutely incredible experience with friends and family this past weekend.

Let’s Jump in. First, Checkout this Vlog from the weekend:

I’m just now getting used to video editing but expect more video content from us here at the Star Wars Report soon! (Celebration EU anyone?)

First up, I have the opportunity to meet up with Teresa Delgado from Fangirls Going Rogue and we bolted straight over to the Star Wars launch bay experience!

Hanging out after seeing the Launch Bay

It was an incredible day, and I absolutely loved having the experience of going through the Launch Bay twice, as well as heading over to Star Tours and hopping on the ride with over 30 passionate Star Wars fans and RebelForce radio listeners. It was an absolute treat. To hear a detailed accounting of our weekend and podcast form, check out this week’s Star Wars Report podcast.

Then came Saturday, the day of the Rebel Force radio live podcast! (catch the full podcast here) It was amazing seeing the number of people who came out to the Hilton Lake Buena Vista. The 501st were there as well and added a special touch to the event!

Finally, Sunday came around and I had a chance to record this week’s SWR podcast with a Scout rifle from my Star Wars story, as well as take my mom, who made the journey down as well, around Disney springs for the day.

And my Mom!!! She decided to make the trip last minute and we had a blast! She’s the best :)

Finally, I hate to end on a sad note but I can’t leave this post without mentioning the tragedy that happened in Orlando while we were there.

2016-06-13 14.58.03
Taken as we left Monday. :(

We had a great time in Orlando/Disney with friends and family. I must say, the attack just reminds me how important it is to cherish the blessings we have is this life. They are temporary.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
