Disney Blog Hop Thursday! Star Wars!



Welcome to this weeks Disney Blog Hop hosted by Babes in Disneyland, co-hosted by Days in the Park!
If you are new to the hop ... welcome! If you've been here before ... welcome back! :D
Please make sure you check out the rest of the Disney Blog Hoppers over at the
Babes in Disneyland blog or at Days in the Park! This weeks theme is Star Tours/Star Wars! 

I wish I could have been at the opening of Star Tours 2 last week, it looked amazing! I'm sure I'm not alone when I say some of the best coverage came from StarTours2live.com! I loved this post which showed some awesome Star Wars themed cocktails being served at the Press Event! :P 

And some of the best videos I've seen came from AttractionsMagazine.com! Please check out their YouTube Channel for a brilliant video of the Grand Opening Ceremony with George Lucas and Bob Iger! 
They also have some hilarious videos of Star Wars Character dance offs! Below is one of my favourites :)


I've been waiting to show off some of my boyfriends Disney/Star Wars stuff and this seems like a perfect opportunity! Sorry for the (bad!) quality of the photos, I really struggled with the lighting because these figures are still in their shiny packaging!

Minnie Mouse as Princess Leia


Minnie Mouse as Queen Amidala


Mickey as Anakin Skywalker


Mickey as Luke X-Wing Pilot


Stitch as Yoda - This is one of my favourites! :)


Donald Duck as Han Solo


Donald Duck as Darth Maul


Goofy as Darth Vader


I also wana show you this really cool figure of George Lucas in Stormtropper disguise!


How cool is that!? Although I'm pretty sure he's more fair haired these days :P 

And finally, this is probably the pride of his Star Wars collection ... a huge AT-AT!!



This wasn't set up for a photo btw ... this is for real! It sits on his chest of drawers in his bedroom,
lit up by two lightsaber lamps because he's just that cool! :) lol!
He even took it out in the snow to Hoth at Christmas time!



Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Thursday everyone! It's almost the weekend!! ^.^ Yipee!

Thanks guys! Glad I'm not the only one who loves Stitch as Yoda! :) My bf didn't think it was as cool as all the others! :P I came across more vids of Star Wars characters dancing at the Star Wars weekends! Whoever came up with that idea is a genius! :P

OMG, the AT-AT is amazing!! How big is it? And I love the collectibles. That's a great collection! I got the chance to ride Star Tours at the annual passholder preview in Disneyland on Wednesday. Let me tell you, Star Wars fans like yourself will NOT be disappointed! Found you through Babes in Disneyland too!
