Sometimes you can see Storm Troopers roaming around outside the Star Tours line. Most of the time they will not stop and take a picture because they are just passing through, but my daughter is very persistent and chased them down and begged them to take a picture with her brother. The guy kept shaking his head "no" of my daughter wouldn't accept that answer and so eventually she came in and let her take a picture of her brother with him.
As we were getting on the ride, my daughter saw another Storm Trooper and chased him down for a picture inside the line. If you want a picture with the storm trooper you need to be very persistent because they just keep walking by. It's not because they are being rude, I think that is the general attitude of the Storm Trooper. If you have ever talked to some of the other characters like the wicked queen and from Snow White or Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas, you will some notice that the personality of certain characters is meant to be rude. It comes off as a very rude personality but really they are just in character. I've often wondered how many times somebody was offended by the fact that these people were in character. I know one grandmother was very upset that the storm trooper cap walking by when she wanted a picture, I told her that they are in character and that they usually don't stop unless you're very persistent like my child.
How do I get a picture with a Star Trooper at Disneyland?
If you're coming to Disneyland in your child really wants a picture with a Storm Trooper, my best advice is to hang out in front of Star Tours, in the Star Trader store, or in the line of the ride and keep your eyes peeled for one of them walking around. The Storm Troopers are always a roaming around and if you see one be sure to take your picture with him even if he says "no". How you ask? Don't take "no" for an answer, just get in front of him and start posting and have someone ready with a camera and I promise you he will stop for the picture. They only seem rude because they are in character, they are not supposed to be social 'cause they are soldiers of Star Wars. What kind of soldier would they be if they stopped to take pictures with little children? Would Darth Vadar approve?
