Stars and Motorcars (Disney MGM Studios)

I am not really sure what it is, or why it happens, but I always get a little bit excited when I see R2-D2 coming across the walkway at the Disney MGM Studios for the Stars and Motorcars parade. Maybe it's my inner Star Wars ...well, geek... but the sight of a 3 foot tall remote control robot always seems to make my day. I grew up on the classic Star Wars Trilogy, so maybe it's a happy memory from when I was a kid. Anyway, during the parade, several Star Wars characters make a brief appearance, including R2-D2, Darth Vader, and a Studebaker that looks like a speeder, carrying Luke and Leia. A really nice touch if you ask me...

As another Star Wars Geek, I totally get you! I can't wait to get to WDW, because at Disneyland, Star Tours is kinda a forgotten Attraction...nothing ever changed (excpet for the addition of Fastpass)
