Gone Viral: ‘Chewbacca Mom’ Candace Payne Goes to Disney World

Candace Payne, aka Chewbacca Mom has become another internet sensation simply by using humor. Several sources from all over the net have featured her from Yahoo, to ABC news and many others. Now she has gone to Disney World. I mean what did you expect? Yes, humor can take you places!

Candace Payne became an overnight star when she posted a video to Facebook showing herself wearing a Chewbacca toy mask. And then she went to Disney World.

Payne earned herself the nickname “Chewbacca mom” after she posted her hilarious video on Facebook earlier this month. It had racked up more than 153 million views as of Sunday.

The Texas woman continued her adventures with a trip to Disney World, and “GMA” caught up with her and her family there.

Payne, a big “Star Wars” fan, went on the “Star Tours” ride, where she was trailed by Stormtroopers.

She laughed on the Tower of Terror, and even met Chewbacca, the Wookiee warrior responsible for her stardom. The two got along very well and even took a selfie together.

Of course, no trip to Disney World is complete without a ride on Dumbo the Flying Elephant. The family capped their day by watching the Symphony in the Stars fireworks spectacular.

“When simple joys turn to extravagant joys, this is what you end up with,” Payne said. “When you have a heart full of joy, it’ll change everything.”
