Star Wars Weekends 2015 – My Experience in Pictures

Star Wars Weekends has become my go-to event for expressing my Star Wars fandom each year. After making my debut at Disney last year, I was looking forward to re-connecting with friends in my Star Wars Family at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but not before stopping by Downtown Disney Thursday night.

2015-06-11 20.23.24

Definitely not Frozen in Orlando.

We got together for an amazing dinner with the podcaster extraordinaire Steve Glosson and RebelForce Radio’s Jimmy Mac and the Mac clan.

Good times at Downtown Disney

The following morning launched our big Star Wars Day. Friday began the last Star Wars Weekend event and we were ready to ring it in with a big splash. We made it in time for the parade which we got to see with Tom from the Ion Cannon Podcast after running into each other on the Streets of America. The SWW parade always features the absolute best of the best in the world of SW costuming. The 501st were there as always to represent the forces of the empire.
