star wars weekends

we met Boba Fett!  Well, we met Jeremy Bulloch, the actor who originally played Boba Fett and he signed a Lego base plate for Z.  Anyway,  Boba Fett was always his favorite because, ‘Everybody loves a bounty hunter.’  So, long story short, we got to the park at 6AM and got in line for a wrist band that entitled us to get in line for a fast pass.  We were like in the last five or ten people in line to get one.   The upside to this is that if you are at the park that early you are in like the second row and don’t have to paystarwars to park.  🙂  Then we got a fast pass for 5:05 PM!  We made our way back to the Star Tours ride checking out a speeder (I sat on it) and a giant AT-AT.   So we spent the morning riding rides -walking on one after the other with no lines until we stopped for lunch.  We went to the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater for lunch.  A big dark cave with a starry ceiling and you sit in booths shaped like old cars and watch 50’s B movie about aliens.  It is supposed to evoke old drive-ins and it was actually pretty good.  I had a Reuben with fries and it was a little too meaty for me but it had fresh buttered grilled bread and fries.  The best part, they serve Cokes with syrup, like cherry or vanilla.  I had a sugary sweet vanilla Coke.  Awesome.  It was a great way to cool off and wait out the afternoon for our turn in line.  Well, we got our signature from the kindly Jeremy Bulloch.  Soft spoken and very sweet.  He told us it had been a long day and posed for a photo or two.  We later wrapped up our day with a Darth Vader chocolate peanut butter cupcake.  It was surprisingly moist and giant and had a whipped sweet peanut butter frosting under a layer of rich chocolate ganache-it had a bit of Disney tax but we were easily and happily able to split it.  A sweet end to a very long day.
