Just to let everyone know, Star Tours is open right now at Disneyland and it only has a 45min wait. So if you didn't get an invite to the AP preview and want to avoid opening day/summer crowds get to the park now!

I watched the LIVE webcast today from Disneyland for the ceremony for Star Tours, awesome presentation. I wish I was there, but hopefully sometime this summer I'll find time to visit and ride it. I never rode the original Star Tours, but I am sure this new one is 100x better, I can't wait.

I actually recorded the 28 minute presentation using my digital camera off my computer monitor stationary, the quality isn't superb from the original broadcast, but for those who haven't seen it yet, I cut it in two videos, so please enjoy..





I hope these videos are okay to post, if not..a moderator can kindly remove them from this post, and you can basically just go to my youtube page to watch them.

Here are a few photos from soft opening today.

Inside the extended queue for the ride.

Star Speeder Hanger. This part of the queue has changed very little. The "Its a Trap" guy is still in the control tower and C3PO and R2D2 still interact with each other pretty much the same before the re fresh. The biggest changes in this part of the queue is the massive HD video display (it is freaking amazing) and the Star Speeder being changed from blue to red.

Next room has changed from the Cargo Bay to Droid Customs. Gone are the baskets that circled over head of guest in the queue. Also gone it the techno/rock music that use to play in this section of the queue.

Captain Rex being un packed. Every few seconds you will hear him recite some of the old ride spiel before malfunctioning

Body Scan Droid. This droid is very similar to Mr. Potato Head at Toy Story Mania in the way he interacts with guests.

Other than a slight color scheme change, the loading area remains the same.

Gone is the lady with weird Mickey Mouse shaped hair.

I'm not going to spoil the actual ride but overall it is a HUGE improvement over the original. The guest interaction and random ride programs makes Star Tours a very repeatable attraction.
Great ride! Get out and ride it!
