DAD: Star Wars Nite Review!

WOW! To sum it all up it was a lot of fun, it was a lot different then DAD: Throwback Nite. For one there was a lot more people who attended and a lot less people who dressed up. Some of the character meet and greets were: Darth Vader, R2D2, C3-PO, Rey, Kylo Ren, Rey, and Darth Maul. There were specialty foods EVERYWHERE, droids on main street, and JAWA’s in Tomorrowland. It was a crazy, crazy night.

I did not get to see the merchandise because the lines to get into The Emporium and The Star Trader was a lot longer then  I was willing to stand in. I did however get a chance to snag a pretty cool Star Wars Jacket, that I absolutely love before the actual event started.

Over at Galactic Grill some of the food was too much for my nerd-self to handle. They had Blue Milk which was a Jasmine Boba Tea and that was amazing also at Galactic Grill I inquired a Darth Vader Stein which sits proudly next to my Captain Phasma stein from the last time I was there. Accumulating things from the actual event did not go as planned because the lines were hours long and I really wanted to embrace everything else the park had to offer such as, food, fireworks, the countdown to May the Fourth.

One thing I was pretty sad to see was the fact that all the meet and greets were inside. There was no characters walking around the park and Disney had a harder time getting guests without a ticket to exit the park so entering was a bit crazy.

 

Pirates Of The Caribbean: FastPass and MaxPass!?

As the updated POTC re-opens June 8, 2018 debuting the new Auction Scene it will also be debuting FastPass and MaxPass. The addition for FP and MP is there to try and ease the line issues due to the popularity of the attraction. We will find the new FP station over with Haunted Mansions FP distribution area in New Orleans Square.

I think this is an awesome idea because as much as I love POTC the line can get a bit crazy. Although, I do have to say that the line goes pretty fast I just hate waiting in the line so with the new MP system coming I will make sure to book myself a pass. Are you excited for the return of POTC with the new FP/MP system? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Disney After Dark: Star Wars Nite May 3rd!

Tomorrow I leave to go to Disneyland, which means it’s time for me to start packing. Honestly, I can’t wait to see the merchandise for this event. What I really am looking forward to is Hyperspace Mountain. This is my all time favorite overlay for Space Mountain and of course a close second is Ghost Galaxy.

For the event, since I am not a huge costume person I have decided to put on my R2D2 shirt, black short pants, and Darth Vader and Storm Trooper long socks. Keeping it simple and comfy. I also packed as if I was going to buy EVERYTHING in Disneyland because there is 100% chance that I am going to buy everything in Disneyland so I wanted to make room for all the Star Wars merchandise I know I’m going to bring home. Are you going to attend tomorrows event? Or are you going to the second event on the 9th? Let me know in the comments below!
