Disney's plans for Star Tours at both parksby Leah Zanolla
May 13, 2010
In September, Disney announced changes to Star Tours at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Work on the attraction at Disneyland was scheduled to start in October, but plans have changed. The ride will now be shut down July 27 for workers to start the year-long process to covert it to a 3-D attraction.
Star Tours at Walt Disney World is scheduled to close September 8. Before it closes, there will be a party of sorts to allow guests a last chance to ride the original attraction. "Last Tour to Endor" will be held on August 14 during Orlando's Star Wars Celebration V. The special event costs $75 and will be held from 8 pm to 1 am. It will include themed party zones, fireworks and a Death Star Disco. Costumes are encouraged. Disneyland is currently not planning any special events to mark the closing of the attraction.
