Star Tours

Okay, so I have a friend that can get me into the Star Tours at the California disneyland two weeks before it officially opens. Don't ask how we're gonna do it (She works there and was able to get tickets.) I'll be sure to give you guys all the exclusive deets here.

I'll confirm/deny all the rumors like if there's gonna be twelve different rides and if they're still going to have the original.

EDIT: Some info here:

Specifically, will they be fixed?

Oh man that's awesome! My friend and I were there at Disneyworld the night they decommissioned it after Celebration V, we were actually on the very last ride of the night before they shut down. They confirmed at Celebration V that there are going to be multiple stops, I thought they had actually announced all the destinations there but since then they've revealed a few more. In addition, Anthony Daniels had this to say on Twitter the other day:

Come fly Star Tours 52 times to get the full story. Plus Easter eggs!

I am hoping they'll keep the original in the rotation, though with a new ship and captain I don't know how that'd work.

Help finish ROTJ: Revisited!

Sir, I will be joining your ranks on the 23rd or 24th of May.

May the twentyFourth be with me!

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

Yeah, hopefully they don't keep johnny 5 as the pilot.

But... it's the happiest place on earth?

And they have fully grown men wearing their knickerbockers- buttoned above the knee.

No, xhonzi.  It's where dreams and happiness go to die.  Trust me on this one.

Knickerbockers are something other than a basketball team?

Wow.

Aaaaaaah!  Why couldn't you have warned me that both of those videos contain video footage from the parks?  Now I'm going to be depressed the entire rest of the day!

Wow, I've never seen someone employ a sad-faced winky.  I'm not sure how I should feel about that...

You wound me, Frink, by reminding me that you do not approve of my right-side up winky.

^_~

Oh, and I wasn't giving a winky just then.  I was simply demonstrating what it looked like.

 They actually didn't shut it down until a few more weeks after that.  I made a quick trip down there the week after Celebration V so I could ride it one more time (ok, 3 more) before it potentially went away forever.  It was nice to savor one last trip to endor and say farewell to the real Star Tours, so to speak.

Then we went to Universal & got totally blown away by the new Harry Potter ride.  That thing is impressive!

My Grad Nite at Disneyland is 3 days after it opens, but the security is fucking ridiculous and they close all the dark rides those nights (they literally won't even let you wear a hat - what is this, the '70s?) HOWEVER, my teacher told me previously Star Tours was open on Grad Nite so maybe that's the exception to the rule.

edit: uhm, ew? C-3PO's your pilot? Jesus. That Ace character Lucas didn't allow sounded much more interesting.
