We live in SoCal and go to DLand all the time tongue we have annual passes. We actually got engaged there...my husband held up a sign that read: "Marry Me??" on space mountain when they take the photo. big grin
 My husbands dad is an Imagineer.

Oh and we went to disneyworld for our honeymoon, and it was pretty bad. I mean, it was the end of June, but I imagine its always pretty bad there.
And yeah, I'm prepared for next Thursday to be horrible but that's just how it is in the summer. But we'll get there really early. Also, we're brining my 4 month old daughter so we won't be able to go on a lot of things, but my Mother in law is coming so hopefully she can watch her while we do star tours.

Lately I have been watching a bunch of Star Wars videos on Youtube and been sharing them on facebook.
This one makes me laugh, hehe:

What a cute proposal! I'm entirely jealous of your annual passes just so you know. If you're up to it the Jedi Training Academy's in full swing. They've got like six shows playing a day. Have you ever watched it? I bet it's the cutest thing with those little ones "defeating" Vader. Once you ride Tours you've GOT to spill the details on the locations you visited. My ride on Tours hit up the more advertised locations like the pod races and prequel-era space battles. What I didn't get was all the screaming people in the cabin. The ENTIRE ride people were yelling at every damn effect. As a nerd I let it slide, but I was like "are you screaming because you're having a nerdgasm or because you're pathetically scared on this ride?"

Hahaha Zoidey. I'll post a picture of the proposal when I get on my computer.
We had a semi Star Wars themed wedding.
Yes, I've seen the Jedi Training Academy like 1000 times. Its pretty cute. I'm always jealous of those little kids though!!! mad

We used to go to Disneyland like once a week, but since I've been pregnant and after I had my daughter we haven't gone as often. We did bring my daughter when she was 8 weeks old though!!! LOL
She's my Star Wars-Disneyland-PEELer-In Training wink and her middle name is Organa after princess Leia.

I'm looking forward to Star Tours. I don't think I'll care where we go...I'm just really excited about it being different. I've been on the old one so many times I can recite the entire script. tongue
I will be screaming from nerd-gasim.
Anyway, I've been wanting to get a Tattoo of the Star Wars Rebel Symbol on my lower back for soo long. Red, outlined in black. It would be awesome. I don't know why its been so many years.

They only sell booze at CA Adventure. No liquor in Disneyland, except at Club 33.
Anyway, you have to be a really smart computer engineer to get that job.

I could fake that up with Pshop if you like. Sort of a sneak preview.

I remember Star Tours. Last time I was at Disneyland the park was close to closing for the night, and my friends and I went round three times. smile

I used to have a picture of it..lots of people have this specific tattoo.

I think the most times I've ridden Star Tours was 11 times in a row. Summer of 2005 with some friends. haha it was awesome.

I don't care if this thread is supposed to be about Star Wars.  That's a pretty endearing, romantic, and cute photo.  Two of my friends got engaged while we were at Six Flags a couple of years ago.... it was pretty coolsome.... kind of hard to smuggle an engagement ring into an amusement park though. hmpf

Another reason to go visit the Mouse. Disneyland is detector free. They only look in your bags at a checkpoint before you get to the main entry gate...unless they're so cleverly hidden I don't notice them.

I personally think the sideways proposal sign adds to the charm of the message and you try holding it straight flying through the dark at nearly 30mph while also holding on to the car. Not entirely as easy as it looks. Guess he could've pinned it onto his shirt the correct way...

I have a valid question and I'm sure someone's asked it before but WHY do some nerds angrily rant about anything new George Lucas throws at us Star Wars fans? Are they waxing nostalgic they can't even really have (because I'm willing to be some of them weren't even around for the original films' releases) or what?

Yes, he had to pull it out of his jacket pocket in the dark on a rollercoaster...and he said "I figured sideways would be better than risking it being upside down."
I didn't see it till we got off the ride and looked at the picture. I'm screaming at him on the ride "what the hell are you doing?!" Cause I could tell he was doing something, but why would anyone search thru their pockets on a rollercoaster?laff

Everyone loves to hate George Lucas. Honestly, it really pisses me off. It takes a lot of work to make a film,(I work in the film industry) especially ones like Star Wars. For people to criticize every single thing he does is just annoying. Star Wars wouldn't exsist without Lucas. It's HIS story whether you like it or not, he can do whatever he wants with it.
I hate when people are hypocrites "oh I LOVE star wars! But I hate the first three, and I hate George Lucas." Um well guess what, then you hate Star Wars. You can't say "this is my favorite novel! But I hate the end so I never read it." ?????
It just doesn't make sense. Star Wars is a complete story, I-VI and without the prequels and the changes he's made, it wouldn't make sense.
That's my two cents, and I refuse to argue this any further.

I just don't understand the hate either.
I notice so many people HATE the prequels. In my opinion, I thought the prequels were good and I enjoy them very much.
People keep saying "The acting is sooo horrible! George Lucas is a terrible writer!! Blah blah blah!!" I don't think the acting was THAT bad in those movies......maybe it's not the greatest but the prequels really entertained me and I enjoyed them and I think that is what matters imo.

I believe it was FishyJoe that once said something along the lines of the clone wars seeming so much cooler when they were merely referenced to rather than actually filmed... and so... the imagination had created the parts of Lucas' worlds he hadn't touched upon in the original trilogy.. and nothing ever really could compare with the vast imagination of a child.

I donít hate the prequels, but there was definitely something special about the first film (and yes, I did see it in the cinema when it was released). This was before the advent of CGI, and I think people were just so impressed by the visual impact of the film (and the score was pretty neat too). It captured the imagination and set a standard that was hard to maintain.

I'm glad to see level-headed people here and not angry bandwagon nerds with throw a fit with everything Lucas does these days. He created Star Wars for enjoyment and to tell a story. How he did it was his own business. I think the prequels have this certain 90s/early 00s cheesy feel to them but when the originals got to be ten or so years old I'm sure they did as well until they settled into their classic state now. Personally I wish they'd have used less CGI and more old-school tech but I think that of the industry as a whole. Some day 3D will start losing ground because it's not "new" anymore and I hope a balance will come, just like Autotune, it might end up being a huge fad. There's a balance yet to be found between using CGI and animatronics I think to create a more realistic experience. Do I badger the prequels for using almost entirely CGI for some scenes? No, because they're fun to look at! And to sit there and say it looks worse than a PS2 game's just really rude. Of course I like some of the redone stuff in the originals aside from Han not shooting first. That looks REALLY bad.

BTW, coming from The Daily What Geeks, Lucas stated the TV show he promised us has about fifty hours of scripts down but the CGI is still too costly to use for TV, so we'll be waiting for about three more years at least. The link takes you to the article's page. Also, I totally posted a comment there and ended up using someone else's email because I made on up. Serves them right for being "thisisfake".

I haven't done a marathon yet, but might end up doing one soon if I can get some friends together for the long haul. Some friends of mine did a marathon of the SE of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which is longer than all the Star Wars movies. Now that's a commitment...

May I add, Jar Jar Binks is a fucking dickhead! mad I didnít like Episode I or II, but Iíll give III some merit, I quite enjoyed it, the dark nature, the story was interesting and it started to get me engrossed which the first two failed completely to do...

Iím not some Star Wars nerd though; I never even watched them until 2004 when I bought the DVD boxset of the originals. I enjoyed them and thought they were pretty clool. Due to the fact I was an adult when I first watched Star Wars it means that now I have no nostalgia goggles for these movies, because I was a neutral guinea pig...

I hadnít watched any of the prequels at that point so I hadnít been damaged (aside from the messing about that had been done with the originals). I saw the prequels later and straight away I was irked by shitty Jar Jar Binks, fuck that little piece of turd, god even thinking about it makes my blood boil...

The second one just didnít grip me, too much CGI. I liked the puppetry of the originals, so much better, especially Yoda. Real effects rock. The third is pretty alright though, Iíd almost given up before I watched it, but I enjoyed it. Obviously the originals are far better, I found the actors much easier to get, it seemed like they fitted unlike with the prequels whom most of the actors didnít fit for me. This remember comes from someone who hadnít watched Star Wars until 2004. I was 20 when I first saw them. I thought the DVD transfers of the originals looked quite amazing I gotta say...

What about a box with just the original three? The first two prequels would just be coasters to me. Also, I have a BluRay player, but I need a HD TV...
