    Smile Star Wars Weekends 08 -- Anyone going??

    My family and I are traveling to WDW for the last Pirate and Princess Party and then staying through two weekends so that we can hit the first two weekends of Star Wars Weekends at the Studios.

    If anyone else is going to be in the Studios for the SWW, let's put together a mini meet. Maybe watch the morning SW parade or pass the time in line for autographs.

    Holla back!

    We will be there the 2nd and 3rd weekends. (We are traveling with New Orleanians too.) I am getting excited about this trip!

    I know about POTC. I think it might be open the second weekend we are there. I guess I should check when my balance is due too.

    Hopefully it's not the last Pirate and Princess Party. *fingers crossed* We're going to this year on May 16th...but we are also going in August to WDW and we're hoping they have it Aug this year like they did last year! Sorry off topic...

    We'll be at WDW in June, the 3rd weekend of SWW...so unfortunately we'll miss you... I'm sad we'll miss David Prowse or Dave Filoni (director of the NEW Clone Wars movie coming in Aug!!!). But we do get to see Amy Allen.

    Sorry willful. Meant to say last Pirate and Princess Party before the summer crowds and last one on the current schedule at disneythemeparks.com.

    I know that it won't be the last, last one.
    It makes a lot of disney dollars.

    I'll say hello to Chewie and Darth Vader for you. Friday the 13th will be packed at the studios.

    LOL...it's all good. I knew what you meant...and hopefully soon they'll release the summer schedule for the Pirate and Princess Party. You're right, it does make the company money so I'm sure they will continue it during the summer.

    Yeah aren't I crazy for wanting to get away for a day or two? I can seriously use a quick fix. It's been a real stressful two months. Just coming off of jury duty for 7 days and trying to catch up at work.

    I'm still not even sure I am going to pull it off to be honest. Airfare isn't all that attractive for a short weekend. I'd also need park tickets and hotel so....making sure it's something I can afford first.

    We'll be at WDW during SWW (6/14-6/15) but we aren't going to DHS on the weekend. We'll be at MK 6/13-14, EP 6/15, AK 6/16 and DHS on 6/17 if anyone wants to say HI!

    I'll be down to cover Star Wars Weekends from (tentatively) Thursday June 5 - Tuesday, June 10. I'm still finalizing some other things I have going on there that week and weekend, but as of now, I'm hoping to be able to get to the Studios on Friday morning (crack of dawn) to catch the Troopers, and most likely again on Sunday. I, too, will be at Pop Century. Hmmm... who knows, maybe a late-night get-together at Classic Concoctions?

    And no, those aren't Jawa robes I'll be wearing - they're JEDI.




    (and if you can't tell how excited I am about going, just wait until you hear this week's show!)
