Out of curiosity, who from the site is attending weekend 3 this year? (Prowse/Bulloch weekend)

I'll go on Friday with the kids. Plan to arrive around 3am :( , hope that's good enough for a guaranteed FP on any session. Saturday we'll be going to the studios but not getting autographs cause my husband will be going with us to celebrate Gustavo's 13th birthday, so we won't do alot of SW stuff.
Hope you can come B)

I'll be there on Saturday and Sunday!! I won't be making the line for autographs for this weekend since I got Mr.Prowse autograph last year. Also I got Mr. Bullocks autograph several times. I was hoping that I could get the autographs from the actors of the clone wars but there not signing after the behind the force show. Really disappointing. I hope to see u guys there!!!

I will be there, with 2 kids and one or two grandparents in tow. We'll try the autograph line but we probably won't get Prowse - my kids won't get out of bed early enough for that!

My family arrives on the 6th at mid-day. I want to get a few things done that day, like a visit to Wickets and the Hoopla. Then off to bed (at the Beach Club) so i can get my 10 yr old son up at 4 am for the Prowse line. Does anyone know if the Friendship boats run at that hour? :(

Do you think you need to be there by 3am to gurantee an autograph? I'm willing to get there that early if I have to.

speaking to people in line these past 2 weekends I discovered that people that got there at 3am got 3rd session FP, So I'll risk it getting there at 3am I just don't think the kids will function if I get them any earlier to the park, hopefully alot of locals will wait until Saturday to go as well.

Are there really THAT many people that get there before 3AM, or is there just a limited number of FP's to give out?

Personally I have to wonder if the demand will be a little less this year from last year. 3am seems too early to me. That said, I wasn't there for Prowse visit last year.

It is hard for me to believe that if you are there by 6-6:30 am you can't get a fast pass. Now I wouldn't want to bet on anything after that. I guess I'll learn the hard way this weekend. I've got both Friday and Saturday to get this right.

Let's just say that I was willing to go up there and camp out all night... say starting at 1AM... do they even have restrooms open to the public at that time? Getting there isn't an issue, but knowing that there isn't a restroom for my wife to use for 9 hours is a different story... Please advise..

That's awesome... Then I guess I'll be up there watching as much of the Saga as I can fit in before the FP's are handed out... I just hope I have enough laptop batteries :rolleyes:

Last year, the bathrooms were open all night, although we did interfere with the cleaning. :rolleyes: It seems that they power wash the bathrooms, and we were slightly in their way. They requested that anyone that needed to use the bathrooms come over "now", "please" (this is Disney). When I went in there were soapsuds everywhere ~ including the ceilings. B) Which explains why everything is so clean.

And, mostly, if you get there early, everyone is more than willing to remember that you were at your space in line so that you can go to the bathroom, etc. I've always found it to be a really good group.

And, no I'm not awake, and, yes, I'm thrilled that you get to go, and yes, I'm jealous, and if I win the lottery in the next three days, I'll see you Friday. :D

Hope, I'm sorry you won't be there. I'm trying to get motivated to come to the park absurdly early to stand in line.... Not sure I can do it. Meditate I must.

You can do it. Just remember not to do the math. (Don't think. Feel.) ;)

We arrived at the Studios this morning at 8AM, and as expected did not try to get a fast pass for Prowse because his line was too long. Instead we got Bulloch 2nd session. I ran into someone later wearing a StudiosCentral t-shirt (she was not a member of the site - she literally just bought the t-shirt!), who said she arrived at 8:15AM and got standby for Bulloch after she attempted to wait in line for Prowse. Of course she was disappointed not get an autograph because she was #115 out of 120 in standby - I think she stood in the Prowse line a little too long! I think someone posted earlier in this thread that 6AM was a good arrival time to get Prowse - that appeared to be a safe bet this morning.
