However we were okay with this because we got all of the limited edition items we wanted (even a 1 of 200 item) as well as some really cool other stuff (the B movie style art is amazing) and eveyone in line and the cast members working the line are just amazing!
It's awesome that you got to meet Ray Park, we didn't even try for autographs (I'm the only real star wars geek in the family) but had just the best time.
I went to the 'May the 4th be with you' event and it was so poorly organized. 2.5 hour wait standing in line in the rain for the special Tshirts. Only 3 registers open, so it moved slowly. No organization so people had to walk through the line to look at the merchandise, and then too top it off, the Tshirts were crappy quality. they are really thin and the 3X shirts are smaller than the 2X shirts that are normally sold in the park even though they cost more.
