Jennie Does Disney

The station asked me to write a little blog so here we goooooooooooooooo.
This past week we took our kids to Disney World. We drove through the night and so the kids were surprised to find out that we weren’t actually going to a wedding like we had told them. It was Disney Time!
This wasn’t just any week in Disney, oh no! It was DUN DA DA DUN STAR WARS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!
We were greeted at the gate by storm troopers. They weren’t the cranky kind – nope they were hilarious.
We talked to characters, bought memorabilia and rode the Star Wars ride maybe 15 times or so. The kids loved it!
The very highest point of the entire Star Wars hooplah was the kids going through some Jedi training.
Several children from the crowd were chosen to go through the training. A jedi who himself had been trained by Master Obi Won instructed the kids on how to fight the darkside. Just as they were finishing the training there was a disturbance in the Force. Two storm troopers charged the stage followed by DARTH VADER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The kids get to use the light saber skills they just aquired on DARTH VADER!!! Yup that’s right DARTH VADER!!!!
Needless to say all three of my kids took out Lord Vader and restored balance to the Force.
Stuff is so cool now.
When we were little we used sticks as light sabers and the kid down the street with asthma played Darth Vader because he was the only one that could mimick the breathing pattern.
Now the kids can get customized light sabers and have a showdowns with Darth Vader in the happiest place on Earth. Ok, I’m done.
