Star Tours

"Rocketing into your galaxy on May 20, 2011, Star Tours is back with new destinations, new characters and new adventures—now presented in brilliant digital 3-D! Board a Starspeeder 1000 for a thrilling journey through George Lucas' Star Wars universe. A galaxy of trouble awaits, but don't worry, the Force will be with you, always!
Different Adventures
You never know where the Force might take you. Many different Star Tours adventures await you—including multiple storylines and locations. Riding once is not enough!
New Destinations
Glide among the trees with Wookiees on Kashyyyk, kick up some desert sand in a podrace on Tatooine, dive into the lakes of Naboo, weave through the bustling city-planet of Coruscant, blast through the blizzards of Hoth or even help attack the heavily defended Death Star!
Star Wars Characters
Fly with some of your favorite Star Wars characters! C-3PO is aboard as your new pilot. Plus, you might encounter some of your other favorite characters, including:
  • R2-D2
  • Darth Vader
  • Stormtroopers
  • Jedi Master Yoda
  • Admiral Ackbar
  • Princess Leia
  • Chewbacca
You'll also meet brand-new Star Wars characters, like Star Tours Pilot Ace (AC-38), Spokesbot Aly San San and the lethal new Imperial Skytroopers!
Your Flight
Star Tours uses state-of-the-art technology—including a flight-motion simulator vehicle, digital 3D video, Audio Animatronics characters and in-cockpit special effects—to transport you to a "galaxy far, far away." There's nothing else like it on Earth . . . or any other planet!"
How exciting is that?  From what I understand, there are 54 different variations of the ride now!!  With 54 options, passionate riders may want to keep track of their rides.  If you fall into this category, you will want to head to Star Tours Passports and upload your own photo to create a passport for your travels on Star Tours!

Once you get to the park, you can bring your passport to the Star Tours attraction (starting May 20 at DHS and June 3 at DL) and get it stamped. There are also checkboxes and blanks on the passport that allow you to write the dates you visit the different destinations: Hoth, Naboo, Death Star, Tatooine, Coruscant, and Kashyyyk.  I wonder how long it will take to get it all checked off!?!
