May 15, 2013 - Disney Dreamers Everywhere "May The Force Be With You" Event

After Fantasmic! and the park closed for the day, we were brought over to the Star Tours area for a dinner and event...

...of course, being near Star Tours, we could only guess what the theme of the evening would be...especially since Star Wars Weekends were going to be starting later that week.  And, sure enough, soon some of our favorite characters from Star Wars came out to say hello - Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca, Wicket and Logray the Ewoks and the Cantina Band!

They led us to Star Tours for a ride across the universe of the Starspeeder 1000!

After, there was time for pictures...even C-3PO and R2-D2 along with Darth Vader and two of his Stormtroopers and Boba Fett joined us!

After the group left, we went to eat our dinner.  No sooner did we finish were we invited to go and board Star Tours again.  When we got to the boarding area, we were joined by Mickey as Luke, Minnie as Leia and Chip 'n' Dale as Ewoks!

And, after our Star Tours journey, Mickey, Minnie, Chip 'n' Dale were joined outside by Goofy as Darth Vader and Donald as at Stormtrooper!  The characters first joined us in singing my friend Dan "Happy Birthday" as his birthday was the day before and there was even a cake.  Sadly, as I've mentioned before, my 18-55 mm lens to my camera was starting to burn out and all my photos of the cake presentation were blurry.

After our birthday celebration, the characters came out and did some photo opportunities...

Despite the intense sadness of having half my photos turn out blurry from my lens burning out, this was such a great event and, probably, one of my favorites.  I am a big Star Wars fan and always enjoy seeing them.

I just wish my lens were working correctly!  What a time for it to break!!!
