It all started as a small, fan created event to remember the lives of Star Wars' Carrie Fisher, and her mother, Singin' in the Rain's Debbie Reynolds. The tribute was masterminded by Katie Shuman, a long time Disney fan and fashion blogger.
"I am a huge Star Wars fan, too, and when I heard about Carrie's death, I knew that I had to have a day at the parks where I could dress up as her to honour her legacy." she said.
She created an event on FaceBook, and used her blog, The Dressed Up Dame, to promote the event through local fashion and Disney fan groups, but she never realised it would create such a massive gathering.
"When I started this event I expected like maybe 100 people to even be interested in coming, but I'm happy that so many people are wanting to pay tribute to two wonderful women."
More than 4,000 has expressed an interest in going, and over 1,200 went actually attended throughout the day, with many fans dressed up as Princess Leia, sporting the iconic hair buns and lightsabers, with men dressing as her love interest, Han Solo Others wore bright yellow coats and dresses, and carried umbrellas in tribute to Reynolds' most famous role in Singing' in the Rain.
Princess Leias boarded the studios' Star Tours ride to fly over Jakku, Naboo, Hoth and Coruscant with C-3PO as tour guide, whilst many of Reynold's umbrella toting fans rode The Great Movie Ride in the replica Chinese Theatre to watch the legendary Singin' in the Rain scene.
