The FORCE & Fun Was Strong With This One..Our SWW at The BWV!!

Hey Everyone Well We Are Back From Our 4 Day Trip To The World It Was One Amazing And Short Trip..Let Me Tell You My Disney Depression Is In Full Force So I Figured What Better Way To Help, Then To Write Up A Trip Report From This Trip Well, Let's Be Honest..The Only True Way To Cure The Disney Depression Is To Book Another Trip..Am I Right! We Do Have A Trip Booked This Coming December..But I Am REALLY Trying To Convince Hubby To Take Me Down In October To Celebrate My 30th And Food And Wine...We'll See How That One Goes Here Is A Link To My PTR Just Incase Anyone Was Curious Of The Planning Etc..Plus My Intros Are There
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3259117

May 29th

Arrival Day:

We Landed In MCO At 11am. We Had Other Family That Was Already At The Airport(They Arrived Earlier) And By The Time We Landed They Were Finishing Up Their Lunch So We Hung Around The Airport Waiting For Them To Finish Up. I Was Able To Snap A Couple Of Your Traditional MCO Pics



Before We Knew It, It Was Time To Hop On The Magical Express And Go To Our Resort..The Boardwalk Villas! When We Arrived Our Room Was Not Ready Yet, So We Grabbed Some Pizza On The Boardwalk. Within An Hour We Received The Text That Our Room Was Ready. When We Arrived We Were Totally Shocked That We Got The EXACT Room We Requested ...Room #5011



I Was INSANELY Obesessed With This View!

I Mean..I Can't Imagine It Gets Any Better Than That Staying At The BWV.

Since This Was Our Arrival Day, We Planned To Stroll Over To Epcot And Hit A Couple Of Rides And Then Hop The Monorail To The Polynesian For Our Dinner Reservation At The Kona Café. My One DS Is Obsessed With The Seagulls From Nemo So We Had To Make A Pit Stop To Hear...Mine Mine Mine


After That It Was Time For The Polynesian! I Am So In Love With This Resort And The Food They Offer



I Got The Tuna Nigiri and The Togarashi Ahi Tuna...Can You Tell I LOVE Tuna!






And Of Course You Can't Go To The Polynesian Without Ordering One Of These Bad Boys!



After Dinner We Strolled Around And Checked Out The Construction, Grabbed A Drink At The Barefoot Pool Bar And Caught The Electrical Pageant. As Much As We Wanted To Stay And Watch Wishes..We Knew We Had An Early Day The Next Morning For Our SWW Day So We Decided To Call It A Night. We Took The Monorail To The MK To Catch A Bus Home. No Sooner Did We Walk Up, The Boardwalk Bus Was Pulling Away Luckily For Us, A Yacht & Beach Club One Pulled Up And We Hopped On That One! We Got Off At The Yacht Club And Walked Back To Our Resort. It's A Very Nice Walk And Not Far From The BWV.

Ahhh We Are Home!


Next Up..SWW....Jedi Training, Galactic Breakfast...My Son Getting Picked To Walk In The Parade..Jedi Mickey Dinner..Feel The Force Package!

May 30th

At A Very Early 4:45am I Decided To Wake Up Before Everyone Else To Make Sure Everything Was Ready To Go That My Boys Would Need For SWW. Costumes,Autograph Book, Light Sabers,Etc. Honestly, I Don't Sleep Much While In Disney World Because I Am Always Just So Excited To Be Here I Opened The Blinds In The Living Room And Started Packing The Diaper Bag And I Noticed The Sun Starting To Rise...When I Finally Finished I Couldn't Believe Home Beautiful It Was Outside...This Is A View I Wish I Could Wake Up To Every Day!


Finally It Was Time To Wake My Boys Up...Can You Tell They Were Exhausted From Traveling And Their First Day In Disney





They Are Finally Ready For Their Day My Little Luke Skywalker & Yoda!


Our Plan Was To Arrive At The Gates By 7am To Make Sure My Son Got Signed Up For Jedi Training, So This Is At 6:40am And We Are On Our Way..



By The Time We Arrived At 7am People Were Already At Each Turnstile. We Decided To Go To The Far Right One Since It Had The Least. We Were The 2nd or 3rd Family From The Gate.


After A Little Bit Of Waiting We Were Finally Allowed To Walk Down Hollywood Blvd. To Get Ready For The Opening Show And For Me To Get Ready For The Jedi Training Stampede









Notice The Guy With The Baseball Hat On..He Is Not Far Back From The Castmembers...





Look At Him Now..Many People Ahead Of Him. You Don't Have To Run But You Do Have To "Rush"



It Wasn't As Bad As I Thought It Would Be. I Think The Cast Members Did A Great Job With Keeping Everyone In Order. As I Had Said Before, We Were At The Gates By 7am. When We Finally Made Our Way To Jedi Training, The First Show Was Booked, But The 2nd Was Available. Unfortunately, It Was During Our Breakfast Reservation Time, So We Selected The 5pm Show.(More On That Later )

After We Did The Jedi Training Since Up, We Figured We Would Walk Around And Peek At The Star Wars Characters. We Walked Right By Chip & Dale Ewoks Meet And Greet And Their Were 2 People In Line So We Grabbed Some Pictures And Autographs From Them! They Were A Trip! They Really Spent A Lot Of Time With My Kids...One Of Them Even Tried Walking Away With Him! LOL.








After That, We Stopped At Tatooine Traders To Let My Son Build A Luke Skywalker(Green) Light Saber..Obviously He Could Not Walk Around With The Red One We Had Brought Down With Us




Once That Was Finished We Came Across The "Magic Shot" Photopasses. I Thought They Came Out Great!

As We Kept On Walking We Approached Darth Vader's Line...It Was Pretty Short From What I Expected So We Got In That Line Too. We Waited About 10-15mins To Meet Him And That Time Actually Included A Character Switch! It Went Super Fast. My Boys Were So Excited To Meet Him!!! I Thought The Character Interaction With Him Was Awesome! I Loved It When My Son (Dressed As Luke Skywalker) Went To Hand Him His Autograph Book, He Just Stood There With His Arms Crossed or Hands On His Hips!!















After The Vader Meet And Greet It Was Time For Our Galactic Breakfast!!!

We Arrived At 9am For Our 9:10 Reservation. We Ended Up Waiting About 15 Minutes For The Photo Op With Bobba Fett And Darth Vader

Right After, Our Waiter Took Us To Our Ride..We Were All The Way To The Left In The Very Front If You Were Looking At The Movie Screen. I LOVED This Breakfast! The Food Was Delicious! I Got The Tatoonie Sunrise, Hubby Got The Kessel Run And The Boys Got The Kenobi Cuisine. For Some Reason I Forgot To Take Pictures Of Them I Did However, Get Pictures Of The Pastries And BLUE MILK!!








Character Interaction Was Great!! My Boys Loved Trading With The Jawas!!! One Traded An Unopened Mickey Watch And Received A Darth Vader "Easter Egg" With Candy And My Other Son Traded Unopened Toy Story Shiny Stickers And Got A Star Wars Gold Coin With Vader On One Side And Yoda On The Other














I Would Without A Doubt Definitely Do This Breakfast Again!

Oh my goodness!! I thought I was excited before! Now I am even MORE excited to go...if that is even possible!!

There is so much I want to comment on! Kona Cafe looks delicious!!!! It is totally one of our favorite restaurants on property! That morning sunrise shot is epic, it is almost like you are in France with the Eiffel Tower in the distance! Love the costumes and attire for SWW! It is perfect! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the Galactic Breakfast, since we are doing that too!! I can't wait to see everything else you guys did! I am glad you had a great trip!!

After Breakfast, It Was Almost Time To Check In For The First Part Of Feel The Force. As We Were Hanging Around Waiting Outside Of Sci-Fi For My Parents To Meet Up With Us, This Random Man In Regular Clothes With Sunglasses And A Backpack Comes Walking Up To My 4 1/2 yr. old Son. The Following Conversation Happened:

Man: Hey, Can I Ask You A Question?
DS4: Yes.
Man: Do You Like Star Wars?
DS4: Yes.
Man: Do You REALLY Like Star Wars?
DS4: Yes.
Man: Would You Like To Do Something Very Special That Involves Star Wars?
DS4: Yes.
Man: Would You Like To March In The Star Wars Parade?!
Before DS4 Could Even Answer,
I Said YES!!!!

I Was In Shock! My Little Boy Got Selected To Walk In The Parade! Especially Because At That Point I Had Taken Off His Luke Costume Because It Was Hot!!!

The Man Handed Us This Form And 2 Bracelets( One For My Son And One For My Hubby Since He Was Walking With Him) And Told Us To Meet At The ABC Sound Studio!


We All Went Over To Feel The Force To Check In So Hubby & Son Could Then Check In For The Parade..It Was About 10:35am When We Checked In And All The Rope Spots Were Gone Oh Well, The Area Was Very Roomy, But Unfortunately It Was Difficult To View The Parade The Stage Was Good To See And I Did Get Some Decent Shots Of My Son Standing Up By The Stage! All In All, I Could Tell He Was Loving Life While Marching! He Is On The Left Of The Picture In The Blue.

After The Parade We Decided To Go Back To The BWV And Put The Boys Down For A Nap Because We Wanted Them Well Rested For The Jedi Training, The Jedi Dinner And Fireworks.

At About 4:00pm We Headed Back To Hollywood Studios Since DS4 Had To Be Checked In For Jedi Training At 4:30pm For The 5:00pm Show. As We Were Heading Over, It Started To Get Very Cloudy And The Temperature Starting Dropping. This Wasn't A Bad Thing Until It Started Getting Dark Skys And A Breeze All I Kept Thinking Was Please Hold Off Until DS4 Can Fight Darth Vader!! That's All He Has Talked About Since This Trip Was Booked.




We Checked In And He Was Super Excited!!



Out They Started Marching To The Stage!





DS4 Was Lined Up On The Right Hand Side And He Was Then Escorted To The Stage!! It Was Perfect..He Looked Adorable, He Was Right Next To The Jedi Master In The Front..He Even Got The Jedi Masters Light Saber! You Could Tell He Was Having The Time Of His Life!




It Started To Drizzle Out...Oh No, Please Just Hold Off For A Few More Minutes!!Darth Vader Comes Out...


And BOOM...They Cancel The Show

I Felt Terrible! When He Came Off The Stage, I Told Him That He Did SOOO Well, But He Said " Mommy, I Didn't Get To Fight Darth Vader!" Ugh That Crushed Me! What Can You Do..He Did Get His Jedi Certificate And I Promised Him That Next Time He'll Definitely Fight Darth Vader. After The Rain Shower, It Cleared Up And We Were Off To Dinner!
We Checked In At 5:55pm For Our 6:15pm Reservation. This Photopass Line Was Pretty Long..We Waited About 20 Minutes For Our Picture With Chip & Dale. After That, We Were Sat Right Away. The Food Was Pretty Good. Loved The Lobster Mac And Cheese. The Character Interaction Was Just Ok..No Sooner Did We Sit, Mickey Came Up, Took A Picture Or Two, Signed The Book And Left I Was Alittle Bummed Because He Is My Boys' Favorite Character.


Then Minnie Came. She Was Great. She Took Her Time With The Boys..She Even Sat Down To "Chat"!


Then Donald Followed. He Wasn't As Fast As Mickey, But Wasn't As Laid Back As Minnie.



We Were There For 60-70 Minutes And Never Met Goofy

Blue Milk Ice Cream & R2D2 CheeseCake

I am almost certain I saw your boys!
I first noticed your little Yoda. I had pointed him out to my daughter (dressed as a Jedi). They were both really cute!

After Dinner We Rode Star Tours And Then It Was Off To Check In For Feel The Force Part II.
The Line Was Pretty Long To Check In. Once We Did, All Of The Tables Were Taken. We Grabbed A Cocktail, Some Desserts And Set Camp By A Trash Can! This Very Nice Lady Saw Us And She Came From Across The Area And Offered To Share Her Table I Am Not Sure If She Is A DISer, But If You Are...We Were The Family With The 2 Boys And 6 Adults! We Would Like To Thank You For Being So Kind
Feel The Force Is Worth Every Penny In My Opinion...The Drinks Were Good..And Strong I Might Add They Were All You Care To Drink. They Also Had Non Alcoholic Versions & Water. The Desserts Were Delish Too! The Dance Party Prior To The Fireworks Was Great...I Loved How They Played Pictures That People Uploaded To Instagram Throughout The Day..... Speaking Of...I Didn't "Hashtag" Any Of My Pictures But As We Were Watching The Screen, I Saw Another "Yoda" I Thought Awe How Cute! Then I Realized The Picture Was Of My Kids!!! Someone Uploaded The Picture! I Had Saved It From Instagram So Whoever You Are...Thanks!



Here Are The Rest Of The Feel The Force Pictures















Cool Table!









Up Next..Our last Full Day..MK, 7DMT, BOG Lunch, Clown Pool, Illuminations

So happy to see your TR(This is the first time I have seen a TR from a PTR I followed, yay!)! That is such a spectacular view from your room! I can see that being hard to leave behind!

Wow, what a full and busy day! Looks like you really made the most of it though. That is so neat that the jawas were trading with the kids and that your son was in the parade, hopefully it helps sooth the pain of not fighting Darth Vader.

Oh man, those desserts look so delicious! And the table is super awesome, I have seen some reviews on the party and no one even mentioned the table!

I see your Darth t-shirt!! Yay!!!

....I need to try some blue milk now!

Wow! I can't imagine doing sci-fi breakfast, H&V dinner, and Feel the Force all on the same day! We split it over two days and I still felt like it was a lot.

I liked the breakfast more than the dinner, but my nephew liked the dinner better.

Congrats on getting picked for the parade- how cool!

Looking forward to the rest of the trip report.
