  1. we will be there on May 15th. We have a 4 yr. old and a 2 yr.old. Would you say it is worth it to go to the show at Theater of Stars or better to just wander around with them?

    1. They would enjoy the Stormtroopers at the beginning of the Stars of the Saga, but might get bored with the actual shows

  2. Was looking forward to an autograph and photo with Ian McDiarmid,until reading that bit of news,why turn up if your not going to give autographs
