All You Need is The Force, Trust and Pixie Dust! A May 2014 TR -- Updated 10/11

Hi friends, and after all these years and all these trip reports, I do mean FRIENDS! It’s time for another Missyrose and Pixel Dust trip report. But this isn’t just any other trip report. We’ve got big events (24-hour Disney day at Magic Kingdom and Star Wars Weekend) and we’ve also got something we’d never done before, I had a bit of solo time on this trip!

You see, I have more vacation time than Franklin, so when it came time to plan this trip, Franklin encouraged me to enjoy the extra days at Disney early in the week and he’d meet me there for Memorial Day Weekend.

If you’re wondering where the trip report title came from, well, this trip felt like the perfect mix of Star Wars, Disney magic and the thrill of making new memories and catching up with friends.

But before we get the party started, let’s make some introductions for those who may be new around here.



That’s me on the left. I’m Missy, the 32-year-old Disney-aholic.

To fund my Disney habit, I work as an editor in the sports department of a newspaper in Washington D.C. I love all things sports, pop culture and, of course, The Mouse. My favorite Disney character is Minnie Mouse. My favorite Walt Disney World ride is Big Thunder Mountain. And my favorite Disney snack? Casey’s corndog nuggets.

My partner in crime (and now my loving husband!) is Franklin, a.k.a. Pixel Dust here on the Dis.

He is also 32 and works for an architecture firm to pay the Disney bills. His passions are cars (both the lower-cased cars and the movie “Cars”) and photography.
Guido from “Cars” is his favorite Disney character. And he could ride Expedition Everest all day if given the chance.

We started going to Disney together in February 2009, this trip marks our ninth together. And we’re the proud owners of three Disney Vacation Club contracts, one at Boardwalk Villas, one at Bay Lake Tower and our newest contract at Villas at the Grand Floridian.
Now that you know the who, let’s give you the rest of the trip data:

When: May 19-26

Where: Boardwalk Villas

Why: Star Wars Weekend and so much more!

And like many of my previous trip reports, I’ll make you this promise: You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but mainly, you’ll wish you were in Orlando RIGHT NOW!

Yep, I do wish I were in Orlando right now! It will be so fun to read your report since you and I had so many things scheduled at the same time! How did we not run into each other?!

Yay a new trip report and one which I'm really looking forward to reading seeing as we were at the World at the same time. We've still got eight glorious days of holiday left

Disappointed our paths never crossed but maybe next time. Can't wait to see all of Franklin's photos.
