Star Tours: The Adventures Continue FastPass+ Enabled Attraction

Star Tours

The wildest galactic journey ever to depart from this side of the continent transports Walt Disney World guests on a rocking, rolling, uproarious flight, presented by Energizer at Disney-MGM Studios.

Drawing upon the imagination and wizardry of George Lucas, Industrial Light & Magic and the Walt Disney Imagineers, Star Tours combines flight-simulator technology and an action-packed, thrill-a-second motion picture to create a Star Wars experience that transforms the audience into passengers aboard a careening spacecraft.

It's part of a new generation of thrill ride that doesn't rely on tracks, wheels or rocket engines to propel guests into the middle of a memorable journey. Rather, the creative team began with the technology of a flight simulator, utilized by the military and airlines for training pilots, and took it into the world of Star Wars. Synchronizing a stunning film with the virtually limitless gyrations of the simulator, the experience leaves guests actually feeling what they see.

This ride was recently refreshed and in 2011, came back from refurbishment with a brand new storyline, enhanced digital projections, and a randomizer capability, providing hundreds of different possible ride outcomes. The ride now takes place in the time between the two trilogies, drawing on experiences that can be found in the first six movies. The refreshed ride is much smoother and better synchronized than the original, offering a more enjoyable ride experience. Rex has been retired as co-pilot, and C3P0 has taken his place! R2D2 is still in his spot on the outside of the space ship, ready to repair any damage your Star Speeder might encounter. But watch out, rumor is that a Rebel Spy is onboard. Is it YOU? Hang on as you try to outrun the Empire, and get your rebel spy to safety.

Get ready for a brand NEW ride experience! Look for new scenes to be added to the Star Tours randomizer in mid-late December 2015, featuring Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
