Andrea Canaday's Star Wars Weekend Encounter

Every Photo has a story…

Chip & Company fan Andrea Canaday from Beaufort, South Carolina , and her family love to attend Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Andrea said, “Every picture does have a story. I took some great photos on a Disney vacation in June of 2009.  We were also staying at our Home Resort, Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village, for the first time since it’s completion. A dear friend I had not seen in a while and her fiance were also joining me and my family for the weekend. Can you say we were excited?”

Picture this…

When Andrea and her family arrived at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Storm Troopers where all across the top of the ticket entrance. “It was crowded and as my friend and I were waiting for the lines to move, we decided to take pictures of them. This particular Storm Trooper noticed us taking his picture. The next thing you know, we were interacting with each other.  I love to interact with the characters; it’s so much fun!  He pointed his Blaster Rifle at us and then did the ‘I’m watching you’ with his fingers. You know, the pointing to his eyes and then to person thing.  My friend and I did it right back.  He pointed the Blaster Rifle back at us and did the ‘I’m watching you’ again.  This went on for a little bit, and we laughed and carried on with him. It was one of those magical memories you never forget!”

Thanks, Andrea, for sending in your Star Wars Weekend photo and your story, and thank you Chip & Company fans for coming along for a photographical ride!
