Me and my friends arrived at Milton Keynes at about 4am Sunday morning and sat in the freezing cold until we were eventually let in at about 9am. The queue for Elijah was already extremely long and so we joined it immediately to get our tickets. We were approx. 100th to be seen so we went to pick up tickets to see Dominic and Sean.
The centre was buzzing by 10am and it was already clear that people were going to be disappointed - only 1000 tickets were to be handed out for each guest and they had almost gone already.
We didn't see Elijah for a couple of hours but when we did it was worth the wait :-) We each got personalised signatures and all got big hugs! He looked really nice, new hair and all (mohawk style ;-)) so after getting him to say 'Hi!' into the dictaphone we were rushed away ready for the next 900 people to have their wonderful Elijah experience.
We weren't encouraged to take pictures WITH him due to the lack of time to see all guests but I managed to spend enough time with him to make me overly-excited and, as my friend ended up in the same giggly predicament she also knocked Elijah's coke all over his desk......not a good first impression!
Dom was just as nice, it didnt take long for our tickets to be called out and we were getting our pictures and autographs before we knew it. He was really nice and friendly as was Sean Astin, who we were allowed to spend a little more time with.
The whole day was amazing, the Elijah was incredible beyond all hope and there was plenty of memorabilia to keep us little hobbits busy for hours!
Thanks To Harriet and her friends for their experience :)
