Jedi Knight Seeking His Jedi Princess
- May 15, 2008
It's never too late. You never know when your experience of documenting your successes and challenges will help inspire another runner.I always enjoy reading race reports - thanks for posting. Looking forward to the next installment. I need to post a trip report of my own before it is too late ...
Sometimes we're in a hurry to get done with the Expo and back to playing in the parks or get into our rooms that we don't take time to fully explore the Expo. It really didn't take that long to find the different options either. The 2016 Star Wars Expo also had a digital photo op where they would send you a digital picture of you with BB-8 and they had lightsabers for anyone who wanted a prop.Love this report so far! You're making me re-think how I do the expos - I normally just try to get in and out quickly, but that's so cool that you found all of these neat photo-ops! Makes me wonder what I have been missing!
The race weekend character banners were on the way to the race shirt pickup area right after you leave bib pickup. The castle backrop was next to the stage where the speaker series usually takes place and right by the runDisney display medals and the photopass information area. The cockpit of the Millennium Falcon photo op was right outside the expo near the waiting area to get into the merchandise store.I was just thinking that I never saw that castle photo op!
I haven't ran a non Star Wars at Disneyland since the 2012 Half, but I'm reasonably certain they also had some photo stations at the Expo for that race as well. This year they didn't have the big black Star Wars 1/2 Marathon Weekend carpet on the way to bib pickup, but that may have been a function of all the rain in the area right before race weekend.
