Well, I've got all the photos up on Photobucket, so the first of my many trip reports is ready. Let's start at the very beginning (which is a very good place to start).

Posted Image
Basically what happened was my sister held a spot for the Star Wars Parade while I followed a whole crowd of people to wherever they were going. Apparently, it was a line to meet this guy:

Posted Image
Meet my new friend, Jake Lloyd. I could have met Warrick Davis, but he would come to be seen during Behind The Force anyway.

Posted Image
I don't know who the Padwan is in front of this scenery, but doesn't it look like he's right in the middle of the set?

Posted Image
These guys were really cool. My sister spotted one on the roof of a building on Hollywood Boulevard broadcasting directions to the crowd below.

Posted Image
Because I knew the lines were long for Darths Vader and Maul and Chewbacca and the other SW characters, I decided just to take video of them and not get in line.

Posted Image
That is, until I found shorter lines with Princess Leia Minnie...

Posted Image
...and the real Princess Leia (with R2D2)...

Posted Image
... and the Queen Amidala...

Posted Image
... and the new Clone Wars character, Ahsoka Tano. She was really sweet here. :D

If anyone has any idea who in the Star Wars Universe this freaky chick is, please let me know.

Can anybody guess which house has this address? I'll give hints:

Still don't get it? You'll figure it out soon.

Hungry for the answer?

That's right. It's the 50's Prime Time Cafe. After years of not being able to eat there due to capacity, we figured out the trick to getting ADR's: Call ahead before making the trip out there (wish the same could be said for Cinderella's Royal Table). Oh, by the way, the chick standing in this photo didn't eat her vegetables, and they called her out on it.

I realize that I have more video of characters and events than I do photos. Patience, my friends. These will all come up. Meanwhile, check out these atmos-photos.

I will give my impressions of Toy Story Mania in another post.

Great photo report Peter. It's fun to just sit back and look at someone's trip just from their photos now and then. Looking forward to reading the rest of your report :D

Good stuff, SP! Did you behave yourself at Prime Time or did you get called out for anything?

I cleaned my plate good. It was the "cousins" before me that had a problem with eating their veggies. :D

I can't remember her name at the moment, but if you go watch the podrace, you'll see her for all of about 5 seconds.

Front of the park right near the soda stand. Right side once you first walk in, right after the turnstiles.

Bounty hunter, eh? Yeah, that would make sense. She was hanging around the bounty hunter station.
