If you were to ask me what event I want to attend most at Walt Disney World, I would tell you Star Wars Weekends. Why? I am a geek and up until yesterday I thought I had never been. But guess what, I have been. I have been lying to myself and countless others for 14 years.
I was going through some old Disney photos looking for some to scan for my facebook page. As I was looking through the album from my high school graduation trip & noticed something I hadn’t noticed before. See the banner in the background. It plainly says Star Wars Weekends.
So how did I never notice this before? I have no idea. I am a pretty observant person with a good memory. How I was oblivious to this up until now I will probably never know. Now granted, Star Wars Weekends then were not as extravagant as they are now, but I should have figured this out before. I am guessing we never knew while we were on our trip. But did I not think it was strange that there were Storm Troopers greeting us at the entrance?
So there you have it. Not only have I attended, but I was at the very first Star Wars Weekends in 1997. I have posted further evidence below.
I guess now I will have to say, I can’t wait to go back for Star Wars Weekends!
