    June 27th marks the 5th Annual Unofficial SW Day at Disneyland.

    This is open to members of Fan Force, The Rebel Legion, the 501st, and any SW fans.

    Fan Force has a traditional lunch at Pizza Port at noon that anyone is welcome to attend, followed by the group photo at 2pm in front of the castle.

    As usual, T-shirt will be on sale for the event, and all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

    Okay, after nearly seven years without stepping foot in the Magical Kingdom, this year's gonna be different. If I start saving now, it's a definate possibility. [face_praying]

    My original plan was to use my 'get-in-free-on-your-birthday' coupon ten days later, but who wants to go to Disneyland alone?

    Besides, with a Greyhound station less than half a mile away, what could be simpler? :D

    Not to burst your bubble, but, as far as I understand, you can only use your free birthday pass on your actual birth date. I could be wrong, however, you might want to check into that further just to be sure.

    I meant I'd originally wanted to go to Disneyland on my birthday; which is ten days after the Fan Day.:D Don't worry, I wasn't planning on using the 'get-in-free' voucher on any day oher than the one it was intended for- hence the 'start saving' comment.

    I was just worried that you were planning on using the birthday pass and I didn't want you to be disappointed if it couldn't be used after your day.

    By the way, came across this tidbit of info on Star Tours[face_thinking] [face_praying]

    Codenamed "LODESTAR," there's a secret LucasFilm shoot going on right now that would have any Star Wars fan wishing they could be a fly on the wall. That's because the likes of Boba Fett, Admiral "It's A Trap!" Ackbar, Tusken raiders and man-behind-the-'bot Anthony Daniels, who brought C-3PO to life, are all in attendance. The part of me that rode this ride countless times a child is excited for more Star Wars content, but I'm a bit nervous thinking about how much of the revamp will feel like the prequels, whereas Star Tours right now is indisputably seated in the original trilogy. (The ride hasn't changed since it opened in 1987, after all.)

    /Film has the scoop:

    Sources reveal that the revamp will incorporate prequel characters (like Naboo citizens and Geonosians) along with many aliens from the original trilogy (Aqualish, Bith, Rodians, etc). In the action sequence, the Star Tours vehicle is now going to be chased by Boba Fett. C3PO and R2-D2 are still the hosts, and Anthony Daniels will be recording his parts this week. Admiral Ackbar holographically communicates with the Star Tours vehicle.
    That doesn't sound too bad, though the ride as it stands it epic. It starts as you make your way toward the Endor moon, miss it completely, and end up in a field of comets, fighting off Star Destroyers and finally blowing up the Death Star. Being chased by Boba Fett sounds fun, but let's keep our fingers crossed and hope they do this venerable ride justice.

    Ugh! I unfortunately am a no go on this one. The 27th is too close for me to save up enough money to go. I will be there in spirit though, esspecially when everyone rides Star Tours.

    What??? Is it true??? The man...the myth...the legend...#3 of the three amigos...you're coming to Disneyland??? I've got digital pictures with your name all over them pal! I sure hope you can make it indeed. We need some new "magic" to happen.

    For all you new members of the IEFF, you're in for a real treat when you meet Ronnie, husband of Nikol. He's slightly crazy (we like it that way) and totally funny. Just look at any of our "outings" and you'll see why he is missed when not around. I've attached a few pics here

    Glad you get to make it to Disney, Brian! It was great seeing you at the library event.

    Honestly, I think everyone in this group is touched with a bit of madness. It's one of the reasons we all get along so well. However, some do have worse cases of madness than others!
