I spent the entire weekend enjoying and photographing/videotaping the opening days of Star Wars Weekends. The rain was heavy much of the time, but it didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the crowds.
Thank you to JeffLangeDVD.com for hosting my videos (we are almost up to 100 subscribers now on YouTube as well!) His newest DVD is Walt Disney World 1986! I have watched it, and it's a wonderful way to remember how Walt Disney World used to be.

I have full video of the first parade of Star Wars weekends, you can see here that the weather nearly did not cooperate:
I also have video of the first welcome ceremony after the parade. Keep reading further and you'll find photos of the welcome from the next 2 days! Some photos of the stars of the weekend:
Ashley Eckstein and James Arnold Taylor:
A sign for A Visit to the Maul, which was reprised by Ray Park after it was hugely successful in 2007:

Singing the Mickey Mouse Club theme song – Ray Park wasn't as familiar with it at the beginning of the 3 day weekend, but did much better by day 3!
