Like an exploding Death Star, news of the party in Anaheim has reached the travel world.

But that’s just a modicum of the fantastic stories that crept across the transom of pop culture and travel news this week.

Below is a collection of the videos and tweets that tickled us to no end, giving us a nice bookend to what has been a tremendous few days.

It’s not good, but in a completely awesome way.

Still, we say he handled the momentary lapse with an amazing amount of sophistication.
