FORM an orderly queue ladies! Jedi action available here!

Yes, that is me and no that is not my own hair, but instead a mocked up image taken after I had just ridden Star Tours, the Star Wars ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida in 2003.

For fans of the ride, it was taken in the Tatooine Traders shop full of Star Wars goodies which made the trip worth going all by itself. That and getting married wearing a cowboy hat, but that’s another story.

Click through for the full hit! Yes, there’s more!

The full image is below, featuring my stepson Luke and I as Anakin and Obi Wan from the Attack of the Clones, but don’t hold that against us.

Look the part eh, even with the enormous mullet.

To me, this was just the icing on the cake after having ridden the Star Tours ride itself that takes you on a shuttle ride to Endor, somehow encompassing an attack on the Death Star. Take a look, and feel free to share any embarrassing pics you have too!
