    who is ever going this weekend (June 24th - 26), and you are going in costume. You must watch your back. I went June 12th, everything was going fine, got my autograph, Wylee and my girlfriend slept in, I was wearing my costume, people were taking pictures with me, I was signing kids autograph books. The day was going wonderful, better than I expected. until.

    A security guard approached me and told me I couldn't sign autographs. He said that I didn't work for Disney so it was not aloud. I said "not a problem. Is it all right for people to take pictures of me?" He replied "take all the pictures you want, but please no more autographs." I replied "not a problem at all."

    Around 1:00 I meet up with my girlfriend and Wylee. She said she is going to do her thing, and me and Wylee can go do ours. we were going to meet back at star tours at 3:00. We went on our mary way. around 1:45 a guy asked me if I could talk to him for a moment. I said sure. I looked for Wylee and there was a guy taking him off to the side. I started to say something, but the guy said that he is OK, that they work for Disney. he introduced himself as Tim, head of security at MGM. he asked if I noticed the security guards around me. I looked around and there were 3 big guys 5 feet away from me.

    He continued to talk and said "Were you told not to sign autographs?" I said "yes, from that guy over there." He said "then why did you sign another one after you were told not to?" I said "but i." he interrupted me and said, "one of my employees seen you signing after we told you not to." I tried to reply "you must be mistaken I didn't sign any." He cut me off and said "one of my employees seen you". I replied but I didn't sign". He cut me off again and said "sir one of my employees seen you. you can't block up the walk ways taking pictures either. I don't want to see or here about this again, or you will be kicked out of the park". Once again I replied "but I didn't". and once again he cut me off, and said "do you want to ruin the rest of the day for you and your son? don't let me see it again.

    I felt hurt, violated, scared, worried. Every time a child came up to me and asked me for a photograph and or an autograph, I felt like running the other way. I felt like they were watching my every move. how could I enjoy myself? At 3:00 I met up with my girlfriend. I told her to take Wylee for the rest of the day. I told her what had happened, and I was going to talk to someone about it, then going back to the hotel.

    Well, I found out who said these false accusations, it was the guy dressed as Luke (I got some inside people who found out for me). I guess he was mad because my line for photos was longer than his. ether way it was wrong. So if you go in costume this weekend, BEWARE, NO AUTOGRAPHS PLEASE. don't let this happen to you.

    Disney are a bunch of morons. They Suck!!! You should have used the "Jedi Mind Trick" or "Force Choke" on the person in security. It would have been an awesome display of your power.

    wow. it doesn't surprise me...disney and the whole enterprise is insane. don't get me started...they're very protective of their "rights" to star wars stuff. i'm guessing you probably had an excellent costume, and it was taking away from people buying over-priced food and trinkets. or even from the celebrities there. what a day!
    disney is evil.
