Photographing Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular

Posted on
I had a plan in mind when I thought about photographing the new night show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is a fabulous show mixing projections on the Great Movie Ride and fireworks. The problem lies in the word “mix”. The projections seldom are still long enough to mix them with … Continue reading "Photographing Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular"

From there it just got bigger and better. A lot of people were entertained all day with Star Wars Character Meet and Greets, … Continue reading "Star Wars Weekends Legends of the Force Motorcade"

Disney and Star Wars could things get any better than that?

Posted on
Once a year for 4 weeks Disney lets the Empire take over Hollywood Studios for its annual Star Wars Weekends. This year with Disney in full control there were some great changes in store… to start they extended the experience another weekend for a 5th weekend. It’s just simply an amazing time… For the past 8 years I have been visiting Orlando to celebrate Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios… you would think I was crazy how much I look forward to this trip all year long. What started out as trip for my obsession to the films has turned into a yearly reunion of great friends who share 2 of the same passions…. Disney and Star Wars… Unfortunately since I travel from NY I only have the fortune of going for 1 of the weekends so each year is a gamble as to who I will be able to get to meet. My buddy and I try to maximize our time as well as plan smart. We buy an annual pass 1 year and choose either of the last 2 weekends so that we have the choice of the 1st 2 weekends the following year, so this year we chose weekend 1.
