Seems as though we don't have a thread just about our vacations. There was an old one buried from a long time ago about where people would like
to vacation, but let's have one about our actual vacations (and better to do this, rather than hijack the post your pic thread). As some may recall, Jingle.family went to Disneyworld last month, and here's some of the evidence.
We went June 1-9, and hit 'Star Wars Weekends' for the last two weekends it was on. They've been doing this for a number of years, not just since they bought Star Wars. Hollywood Studios gets all "Star Wars'd" up, extra SW characters roaming the park (completely "in" character too), and they bring in some Tier 1 and Tier 2/3 names from Star Wars (Peter Mayhew and Billie D. were the big names in attendance the weekends we were there).
This was so cool... our very last afternoon there, we were just taking in a little bit more of the park (Hollywood Studios), and mulling around a bit. Well, out comes Chewbacca from the behind the scenes areas, walking to wherever his 'station' was for pics and stuff. Jingle.son walks by, and gets the most casual hi-five, like it's no biggie.

On the Buzz Lightyear ride, something was up and they stopped the ride for like 5 minutes. So we were able to fire away at all the available targets, and I maxed out my points!!! (ok, big whoop really)

Jingle.daughter was not impressed at getting soaked on Splash Mountain. What did she expect?

Posing in "Italy" with King Triton
And the pièce de résistance... As part of Star Wars weekends, they had this station called D-Tech me. You get your face 3D scanned, and then they can build a Stormtrooper action figure with your face, or have you frozen in carbonite. They're like ceramic 12" figures. I got mine already, still waiting on jingle.son's.
