I've survived Bastille Day in Paris twice. If I survive that I can make it through Star Wars Weekends. Big Grin

And as Jon said, it is busy. I would go so far as saying it is Tokyo crazy busy during those weekends. Long, LONG lines, intensely hot and throngs of people like you've never seen at DHS! But, all the same, it IS awesome!

Yeah... there are certainly Tokyo level lines for some things... people camping out overnight for some of the autograph fast passes for example and three hour long lines to get into the Merchandise tent at times.

The autographs isn't anything I care too much about thankfully. A lot of the guests having been there in the past years I met at Sci fi conventions in the UK already. Merchandise tent, Ewok Chipmunks, parade would be the main wants. Anything else is a bonus. Big Grin

Though I think I may have got my bonus already... as of 9:34 AM East Coast time I am the proud holder of... a Be Our Guest dinner reservation! Big Grin

Ohh nice! We still aren't sure how we managed to get our Be Our Guest reservation when we went last year LOL. Well if you go to the merchandise tent later in the day it isn't nearly as bad... it is just first thing... we don't bother with the autographs either but there is a lot of other great stuff... definitely don't miss Hyperspace Hoopla!

I'm not quite sure either. LOL When the plan started materializing Saturday we checked the reservation system and of course Be Our Guest was the only thing booked solid. Then this afternoon I figured I'd check one last time before going off, and suddenly the page looks different. For a moment I thought the computer had died on me. LOL But no, it was showing one available time for Sunday, so even a day we were planning to spend the evening at the Magic Kingdom.

My sister's friend went last year and while in line for Rock n' Roller Coaster, she got to hang out with Ray Park (Darth Maul, Toad, and a host of other action-y but silent characters).

Breaking news: There's going to be two different Star Wars themed character meals going on starting May 4 for the duration of the Star Wars weekends!

There's Star Wars Galactic Dine inn Breakfast at Sci Fi which besides Jawa and Stormtroopers also will have Greedo and Darth Vader visiting.

And... Jedi Mickey's Star Wars Dinner at Hollywood and Vine! Visiting will be Jedi Mickey, Leia Minnie, Stormtrooper Donald and Ewok Chip and Dale.

1 hour and 23 minutes on the phone to Florida. I better find a very safe place to hide that phone bill. But we're booked for both on May 16. I guess besides Chewbacca that's the longest character lines covered.
