    I remember about the rain in your TR, but didn't remember about the newspapers.

    Thanks! Lol, ok I won't download them so small.

    I tried that and mine just stuck underneath my tongue. Of course, I've always been bad at taking medication.

    Did it work?

    Best wishes tomorrow for your travels and surgery. I am praying as you asked and will continue. I hope you get assigned to the 1st floor of that motel once you are discharged!

    Welcome! And thanks so much! Hope you will stick around for Day 12!





    Hey Everyone, speaking of Day 12, I am getting there. I hope to have this TR finished before we head to Celebration VI. And speaking of Celebration VI, the schedule came out today! I can't figure out which icon to press on the app, but I did find it through the apps search feature.

    I was hoping to update yesterday, but we ended up at the MK. So after having fun for a couple hours I got home to finding the schedule for Celebration VI on the internet. The rest of the evening we spent reading about the panels.

    The phone app for C6 wasn't working on my phone. But after uninstalling and reinstalling it now shows the schedule on my phone!!

    Going now, to download the pictures from Day 12 to photobucket and hopefully should be cranking out updates soon.

    Michele, for me, the pill got stuck to the underside of my tongue

    How could I forget this M&G from Day 11? The rain had become a fine mist that felt wonderful and cool. I think it was Melissa who gave us the heads up that Ventress was soon coming out for her M&G. So after buying the costume at the Mall we headed to see Asajj Ventress.

    Anakin was very excited about this. He had one of her trading cards for her to sign!! The rain was bothering his eyes and he was nervous about meeting ventress. He asked for his hat. He wanted the rain out of his eyes, but he also wanted the calming he gets from deep pressure.

    The line was forming and there were quite a bit of people. Someone asked who was the next character and the cm said Ventress. All of the sudden the majority of the people in queue got out. Leaving just us and 2 other families!!

    The children of one of the families was asking Anakin where he got his cool Boba Fett costume. He told them all about it. Every detail you could imagine including that it's 30% off and if you have an annual pass you get that discount on top of it!! Remember this family, we will see them Day 12. You'll never guess what one of the kids was wearing?! ;)

    The Ventress M&G was awesome! She took lots of time with each person because there was hardly anyone in line. Anakin overcame his apprehension about her and loved this "bad guy", this villian with a heart.

    Thanks! Yes, she is very thin! Maybe I should put that picture up for inspiration? I was up almost 10 pounds since you were here in Oct, YUCK!! But I am working on it and doing toning. After seeing myself in the SWW, I know I have to do something. DH felt the same. He lost a ton of weight and his costumes for C6 are now baggie. He's been working on them though.

    He is feeling much better. Thanks for asking.

    Enjoy your day, bowling sounds like fun!

    Too funny, same for me Michelle.


    What a cool meet and greet. You would think any real fans of the movie series would stay in the line. I know that if it were me I would. I am glad Anakin warmed to her.


    I am also glad to hear that Anakin is feeling better.

    Thanks! Asajj Ventress is from the Clone Wars series. Your boys would probably love the Clone Wars. The new episodes should be on Cartoon Network on a Friday night.

    Lol, glad I'm not alone.

    Ventress is not from the movie series. She is a villian in the Clone Wars series. She first made her appearance in the Clone Wars movie. We met so many Star Wars fans who are against the Clone Wars series. Maybe against isn't the right word? But they are definately not fans of Clone Wars. We are fans of both! In fact, our Friday nights are usually stay at home nights because we watch Clone Wars as a family. The only other tv show we watch together is Jane by Design on ABC Family.

    I do digress, sorry. The reason most of the people in the line left, was that they were mostly little boys and they wanted to see Captain Rex or Commander Cody.

    I have been playing catch up forever. I think I am finally caught up with your TR. I am sooo soooo sorry. Between work and our trip last month...I just seem to get caught up on one thread and then fall behind on another.:sad2:

    Congratulations to Grumpy!

    What a nice room and :cool1: on the upgrade!!!

    Love the room key!

    :cool1: Awesome that you got such a discount!!!

    Sounds like you ran into quite a few good cms!!! Love how she had him hold his helmet, BTW!!!




    How cool!!! And what a brilliant idea that your dh had.


    You have had some of the best character interactions! How fun for Anakin to arrest his dad!

    I dont' know who those characters are... but I am glad that they took some extra special time for Anakin!!!!

    What special meet and greets. I love that you got the “father son” shots.. and Darth Goofy and Storm Trooper Donald are too cute!


    Those look like more good times will be in your future!

    Good for Anakin to be able to compromise and get a bit creative. :thumbsup2



    I love that yet again... you had some awesome interaction with a character!

    Another amazing M&G! HOW magical!!!

    That rain sounds ridiculously scary!!!

    That guy sounds so scary! I am sorry that you all had to be witness to that..especially, Anakin. I imagine that was hard on him.

    :cheer2: I hope it worked out and you got to be the first family!!!

    Clone Wars... that explains it. I was wondering where some of these other characters were from.

    I think it is cool that the line opened up for you once people knew it was Ventress (?) who they were waiting for.

    I understand, no worries.

    He starts college at the end of the month! He went for books today, but they only had 2 books available the rest hasn't come in yet they said. So he'll have to go back again.


    It was an awesome room. Nice surprise with the room and the key!


    We sure did! I'm so glad too, I don't think we would have thought to do that.

    Cue rooster crow! Wakey, wakey, eggs and bakey! It’s 6am, time for medicine and time to get a fast pass for autographs! AUTOGRAPHS?! Guess who’s wide awake!?

    He went right to his new costume and tried to open the sealed package. It wouldn’t budge. He handed dh and I the costume and his smile was beaming to wear it. I put the package back, and dh explained to him how the temperatures were going to soar today, the Boba Fett costume would be too hot to wear. It’s wasn’t going to be overcast or rainy like the day before.

    I helped him into the Obi-Wan costume and shorts. In his words, “but nobody will give me compliments in this costume, it’s not as special.” I assured him that this costume was more sensible and that people will like it, even if they don’t comment about it. “But it’s Bonus Boba Weekend”, he worried.

    We got to DHS a bit later than DH did the day before. He said there were many more cars in the parking lot than the morning before. He prepared us to wait, and we decided who we were going to see on the way in. I picked James Arnold Taylor (voice actor who portrays Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars) . Anakin picked Michonne Bourriague (the actor who portrayed Aurra Sing in Star Wars Episode 1), which was where dh ended up by default. He was contemplating getting Anakin a wrist band for Michonne, then going back to get his own wristband for Nikka Futterman, the voice actress who portrays Ventress in the Clone Wars. But he ended up getting a wristband/FP for Michonne too.

    While in line for the FP, Melony a CM started talking to Anakin about SWW. She continued on greeting guests and answering questions. A few minutes later, she came back with a surprise for Anakin! A Droid Factor toy, a Chewbacca and some droid pieces!! He loved it! And this was just the first of a day full of magic and surprises. The Force is Strong in This One!!

    [​IMG]

    The sun was shining bright. We had our FP/wristbands. We were all set to go, when I remembered that I forgot the suntan lotion. I told them to get in line to enter and I’ll run back to the car. But dh being the chivalrous guy he is, went instead. We got to see the opening Storm Trooper “ceremony”.

    [​IMG]

    Anakin said that he would like to do Jedi Training and the Padawan Mind Challenge. When the park opened, we headed towards Indiana Jones to get him signed up for Jedi Training. But nearing Hollywood and Vine he changed his mind. Just wanted to do the Padawan Mind Challenge. I back tracked a little headed over to the Sounds Dangerous building to sign him up for the mind challenge. He wanted to do the last one, which was Star Wars Episode 1 Trivia rather than the Clone Wars one. They said it was fine and gave us a return time.

    It was only 8:20am so we decided to go on Toy Story Mania. There weren't many people in line. We got right on. Dh was at the exit when we got off. Anakin complained of feeling dizzy. We gave him a drink then he closed his eyes and went to sleep.

    We headed straight for Darth’s Mall to see C3PO and R2D2. We didn’t see Melissa so we got in line. There weren’t many people in line. I think there might have been 10 people at the most. Everyone was sitting on the floor talking and waiting patiently.

    Melissa walked by, and I said hi. She said she had been looking for us! She asked us to follow her, and parked us by the M&G exit. Anakin was still sound asleep. We woke him up just before the M&G. He said he still felt a little dizzy from TSM. We asked if he wants to see C3PO and R2D2 and he perked right up.

    It wasn’t too long after we woke him up that C3PO came out waving.

    [​IMG]

    He came right up to Anakin and said hello. Yes, C3PO is a talking character!

    [​IMG]

    He led Anakin into the M&G. I’m not sure what all they talked about, but they talked a lot. Anakin was so happy. His eyes lit up despite being dizzy. He even gave good eye contact most of the time.

    Even dh and I got in on the action! If you see us at Celebration please say hi. If you have followed along with this TR and didn’t post yet, please sign in and say hello! Would love to know who the nearly 10,000 people are who have been lurking.

    This meet was so much fun! To top it off, C3PO did comment about liking Anakin’s costume!

    You guys have had some amazing castmembers and meet & greets! Every time I see Anakin smiling with the characters, it warms my heart and makes me smile too. Gotta say that one of my favorite pictures is the one of all three of you. You can tell that you're having a great day so far.

    So happy his smile is contageous. Thank you, we are just missing Goofy, but he was having fun on his fishing trip. It was only a few minutes after 9am at this point in the day! We were off to a fabulous start!! The amazing thing, it just kept getting better and better.

    Thanks! I hope you get your chance to go to Celebration some day! This will be our first!

    It was awesome!!!! I don't like to get in the picture. I prefer to take them. As you can see, I tried to hide. She is a wonderful CM, we were very thankful for her.

    She is pictured in the back of a picture of our first attempt to see R2D2 and C3PO, that didn't happen. She was just as wonderful that day, we were soooo close to seeing them. She brought C3PO over to wave to those of us who were so close. He did say hello.
