George Lucas at Disneyland 1990

My brothers have been bugging me for a copy of this picture. So I finally scanned it. In 1990 my family took a trip to Disneyland. Star Tours had opened 3 years earlier and we were excited to try the new ride. With 7 more years till there was a "Special Edition" and, 5 more years till there would be any new action figures, there was a drought of Star Wars items for hungry fans. This allowed George Lucas to enjoy a bit of anonymity and walk openly around Tomorrowland with out people swarming him. His VIP tour guide was enough to keep crowds back I guess. Not wanting to ruin his vacation I was satisfied to snap this photo from a distance.
Did you see him? Here's a closer look.
