    SWW started this past weekend.
    Here are the dates and guests:

    May 20 - 22
    Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett)
    John Goodson (Concept Model Maker)

    May 27 - 29
    Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca)
    Rob Coleman (Animation Supervisor)

    June 3 - 5
    Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok)
    Don Bies (R2-D2 Operator)

    June 10 - 12
    Jerome Blake (Rune Haako)
    Brian Gernand (Model Supervisor)

    I'm going to be going to the last one unfortunately. I was going to go to the one before it, but then we found out that that one is the last weekend of Gay Days and therefore will probably be übercrowded (as if Disney isn't crowded enough on a regular basis). I'm somewhat disappointed, cause I really don't care for the Nemoidian guy, but whatever, my best friend absolutely refuses to go when it's Gay Days because he will get depressed. I wish we'd known earlier or I'd have opted to see Daniel Logan, as we've already met Peter Mayhew (last year). Also, might I note that they are being cheap this year with the guests. I don't really have any interest in meeting a model supervisor. . . *sigh*

    Anywho, who's planning on going and when?

    The last weekend is the best to do. It's denoted as "Fan Weekend" and the 501st/Rebel Legion will have roughly 100+ members marching in the celeb. parade.

    Ooer... :B That makes me feel somewhat better about the lame guest, but now I'm wondering why they didn't save a good one for the last weekend? So cheap this year compared to previous years. :( And the price went up on our rooms from last year's excursion (used to be $80, now it's $120). Will you be there that weekend, Q?

    Woo! I'm kinda wanting to do something, but I probably won't have time; I never have time, damn it. *huff* I've got some extra days off coming up, so maybe I will be able to whip something up. For some reason, Padmé's Tatooine disguise is calling me...

And then I was gonna go sunday after the conference was over but my season pass isn't good then...because its the start of tourist season. blah.

    Star Wars Weekends At Disney Extended

    Disney World in Florida has announced that Star Wars Weekends will be extended for two additional weeks-- the last weekend is now June 26! No word yet on the promotions for those weekends, however we'll bring you the 411 as soon as we get it.

    Thought I would pass it on. . . o_O

    Thanks. :)
    As far as I know, I'm still going to be there this coming Saturday, although my best friend's grandmother just passed this morning, I don't think it's going to interfere with our SWW plans. If it does, we will go on one of the extended weekends.

    This will probably be my only weekend since the 501st won't be out for the extended weekends. Karma and I will be in the parade both Sat and Sun mornings :)

    I'm crazy excited

    Yeah, but I haven't joined the 501st yet...I need a good sith costume or something. Hell, maybe I'll join the Rebels. ^_^

    You could probably join the Rebel Legion (www.rebellegion.com).

    As for the 501st, just having a Sith costume won't cut it. It needs to be a canon (seen on screen or somewhere in the EU) costume. We are just now approving the Assaj Ventress' and pre-armor Vaders.

    Yeah I would probably do something like Mara Jade as the Emporer's Hand...I don't think they'd approve Shawnkyr (or more properly 'Kyrn') Nuruodo do you?

    An update on the extended weekends. Guests have been announced. From StarWars.com:


    June 17-19
    Amy Allen (Aayla Secura)
    Matthew Wood (voice of General Grievous)

    June 24-26
    Jake Lloyd (young Anakin Skywalker)
    Warren Fu (concept artist, designed General Grievous)

    I'm thinking my best friend might want to do the first one. He loves Aayla and Grievous. I haven't spoken to him yet though. We're heading out this afternoon to Orlando as we have a room to check into. :)
