Padwan Tot versus Darth Vader

Tater wasn't feeling good... but Tot wanted to fight with lightsabers. They have a 'training camp for upcoming Jedi (or Padwan's)'. Tot said he would do it. I cannot show in pictures how much fun it really was to watch. With his back to me, he really looked like a Padwan in that brown cape.

The 'Master' Jedi is teaching the kids the same moves... Hit the left shoulder, the right shoulder, the left knee, DUCK, the left knee, the head. Here are the practice moves for 'Duck' and the head:

Each kid gets to fight Darth Vader... and a couple of kids went before Tot. Disney did a great job with sound effects. They have someone pressing some buttons to make the lightsabers sound good. When the kids hit Vader's saber it makes that 'crsshhhhhh' sound. I did NOT have a camcorder. Which sucks. Because when the kids before Tot fought Vader, they barely hit his lightsaber and the 'Jedi Master' and Vader kept helping them... then it was Tot's turn. He swung that lightsaber to make major contact...

Click to enlarge and look at those feet. He was trying his best to really whack Vader. And the crowd went wild. They clapped louder than they did for the other kids... we could hear them cheering Tot on to do it again. It was frick'n hilarious. And once he got that sleeve out of the way, notice the two handed, start way back swing...

I love that they added this to the MGM park. I am also glad that Tot was willing to get up there and try it out. I was very happy he didn't balk when he had to give it all back. Phew. He still talks about fighting Vader. It was great.

That is just cool. Of course I have no boys so I don't see that in our future visits. But daddy is a geek, so who knows?

Way to go, Tot!
