The Best Coast’s answer to those muggy old Star Wars Weekends down in stinky, steamy Florida. :p
How did I not know about this wonderful unofficial event? I love Star Wars, I love Disneyland. In fact, I’ve had premium annual passports on at least 10 different years. Yet somehow this glorious event quite escaped my notice. But not THIS year!
On June 30, 2013, which happily falls on a Sunday, Star Wars fans will storm the park to show their Jedi pride. At 2pm in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle, a group photo will be taken that you can download from the organizer’s website afterwards. Get there early if you want a spot in the picture.
This is an unofficial event not sponsored by Disney. Wear your Star Wars schwag with pride, but NO COSTUMES (Sorry Boba Phat). T-shirts for this year’s event are available on eBay (while supplies last). Proceeds from t-shirt sales benefit the American Cancer Society.
Enjoy Star Tours, the Jedi Training Academy and other everyday attractions as well as the group photo. If you keep your eyes peeled, you may just spot good ole Crazy Mayzie running around in the crowd. MTFBWYA!!
