  • Any idea if they are pulpy Kylo Ren BEFORE aug 29th in order to swap out the background, etc? We just received my sons costume and plan to meet Kylo on Monday August 26th. My son will be so sad if we miss him! Pls advise!

  • I hope they actually have photographers at this meet and greet. We were there last week to meet Chewbacca, and the camera is an automatic camera box like a photo booth or something. The CM just pointed to the box and said look here. No good shots of the interactions with the character. So disappointed. I will be really glad if the Visa photo op is Vader.

    • yeah i’ve read the tinkerbell option is the same at MK, hoe awful! the photographers are key to getting great shots. this is not a way to cut costs.

  • i wonder if the disney visa card exclusive meet and greet there will switch to darth vader as well?
