Legoland Star Wars Weekend

R2-D2 & the ewoks brought a lot of joy to Star Wars fans young & old who attended Legoland's Star Wars weekend. R2 & other 501st members helped kick off the costume contest, where the winning entrant was a young boy wearing an extremely well-made R2-D2 costume that used creative household items, including a flower pot for a dome. The ewoks once again stole the show. Since it was a warm day, they only lasted about 20 minutes in the fur suits before they needed a water break. Park guests kept going to Guest Services and asking when the ewoks would return. So at day's end we decided to take them out one at a time and trade off 20-minute shifts. This helped to avoid a lot of disappointment among the guests. The ewoks had a long line for photos every time they went out. We worked hard to avoid stopping for more photos while walking to and from the photo area in the park's main entrance, since once they stop, they get mobbed!
