FAMILY GET-TOGETHER — Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World Resort can turn into a Star Wars-costumed reunion, as it did for a Maine family on the opening day of the event in 2005 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Posing with Chewbacca are: (L-R): Diane DuBois (dressed as Princess Leia); Allison Heidorn (Padme Amidala); young Noah Heidorn (in a Jango Fett costume); Kathy Mazzuchelli (Jar-Jar Binks) and Glenn Heidorn (Anakin Skywalker). In her stroller is Alexis Heidorn, age 2, dressed as Princess Leia. (Mark Ashman, photographer)
