The Rancho Obi Wan Experience

The Rancho Obi Wan Experience

Yesterday, DisneyXD aired a special Star Wars related episode of My Family Recipe Rocks.

On the show, which was taped at the “Rancho Obi-Wan,” home to the most Star Wars items in the world, (Joey) Fatone will be seen making a Star Wars breakfast using recipes from The Star Wars Cookbook. He worked alongside Obi-Wan Vice President and General Manager Anne Neumann and President and CEO Steve Sansweet to prepare dishes including Admiral Ack Bars, Dunes of Tatooine Biscuits, and Twin Sun Toast.

During this episode, not only did they cook some Star Wars recipes, but they included a tour of the collection as well. This episode reminded my husband and I that we had the privilege of seeing a portion of this collection, known as the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience, last year at Star Wars Celebration VI. During our walkthrough of this Experience, we took photos of many items that were displayed, some of which can be seen during this episode. Therefore, we decided to share some of the photos of the collection that we thought were interesting:
