Baby Yoda is Taking his Jolly Good Time

Yoda Banner

Born in a Galaxy far, far, away, it is no surprise that Baby Yoda has still not made it to my loving home in Birmingham, Alabama. Baby Yoda, also known as The Child, from the popular Disney+ series The Mandalorian, took the world by storm last year, and the little green creature stole my heart. 

Currently, all theme parks, cruise lines, and other attractions are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We at The Unofficial Guides hope all our readers and their loved ones, as well as all attraction employees, remain healthy and safe. Without intending to trivialize the current crisis, we will continue to post positive stories about the parks, in hopes of bringing their magic into your home as a welcome distraction during these trying times. For the latest updates, read our guide to cornoavirus and the theme parks.

Baby Yoda

My son, eager to please me, albeit surprised by my request, made arrangements for the young one to start his journey last November. He had resigned himself that all his mother wanted for Hanukah was “The Child.”

The holiday came and went, but the eagerly awaited youngling had encountered travel disruptions and was going to be a late arrival. Three Kings came and so did Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, and eventually it became clear that Baby Yoda got lost in space.

Awaiting his arrival, I decided to be creative. I took a drawing lesson from Kevin-John, artist and entrepreneur of Kevin-John Studios as he LIVE streamed art and creative tutorials, starting with—Baby Yoda.

As my first drawing shows, I might have had a little too much Yodarita during my lesson. The drink is your usual margarita in a glass—dressed up, just a little. 

If you come across him, make sure you give him the proper directions to my home on planet Earth.

    Yoda-rita?!?! Seriously? You are too funny. When is the next Yoda-rita happy hour? I’ll make plans to be there.

    Yes, Yoda-rita. I loved making his little outfit and a margarita is always welcome.

    Thank you Annie. I love playing with costumes. April 19 Disneyland was to celebrate Dapper Day, an event I have attended in the past. This year it will be “Dapper Day at Home,” and enthusiast are asked to post their dapper self online, and so I will 🙂

    As it turns out this tragic challenge we are facing shows us we can run the world and our lives online after all. Well mostly. Procuring groceries is a bit of a workout.
