Thinking about our upcoming trip to star wars weekend, here are some favorite highlights from last year’s Star Wars Weekends.
That show ended and I was rushing from the theater to the line once again to see a Visit to the Maul with Ray Park. Ray Park shows you what it was like playing Darth Maul, he goes through a martial arts demonstration complete with weapons and acrobatics that leave you speechless. The man is simply amazing and this show is a great one to see. Again the show ends and I'm headed back into another line to see Obi-Wan and Beyond with James Arnold Taylor.
This show was stunning, words can not express how talented a voice actor James Arnold Taylor is. He gives you a glimpse into the life of a voice actor and does in the neighborhood of 200 or so voices from Obi-Wan to Christopher Walken to Michael J. Fox and Fred Flintstone. Those are just a small sample of the voices that you'll hear, this show isn't to be missed it was that good and most impressive. After another 13 hours or so in the park I was toasted between Friday and Saturday I spent more than 24 hours in the Studio's surrounded by my people Star Wars geeks. I took it easy Sunday and went to the Magic Kingdom to ride Space Mountain and Pirates. Magic Kingdom was crowded again but being the veteran that I am I was able to get past the crowd and get on to Space Mountain quickly.
The people didn't realize that if you go into the Confection shop you can get to the end of Main St. without having to deal with the massive crowd, I zipped past them all in a matter of seconds took a short cut through the Noodle Station to get past a few more people and made it to Space Mountain. Space Mountain still makes me feel like a kid for some reason this ride makes me laugh with joy, I'm not sure how many times I've been on it but it still brings out the kid in me and never gets old. And my first car first seat streak still lives which is important to me and I will make sure to get the same spot in few weeks when we head out to Disneyland.
I know people say you have to experience Space Mountain from the last seat but I love experiencing it from the front it's the only spot I've ever sat and I'm not about to break my streak! This was the first chance I had to ride Pirates since they added the Mermaid to the ride, you hear the Mermaid's singing and it adds an eerie feel to the ride then you see a Mermaid skeleton and that just completes the scene. I like the touch it was done well and adds to the ride. Now if they could put another drop in and make it as good as Disneyland....oh well, I still like ours.
More to come! Stay tuned!
