My son was the spy the one-and-only time we did it.  It probably helped that he was wearing a RotJ-Jedi-Luke-Brown-Robe at the time.

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

I was on it for the first time today and here's my thoughts, in bullet points:

-Queue is still fun.  Silly jokes from the bots, but that's how it was in the original if I recall anyway.  Good TK-421 joke, actually.  I am probably the only person in line who got it.

-The ride itself is... all right.  Went on twice and got an identical path, only with Ackbar giving us the coordinates one time instead of Leia.  My problem with this is that with the original star tours I expected the same thing over and over and loved it. With the new one, if I get the same thing it 's just "why again?" - almost with a sense of dread.  So I guess I didn't like the Hoth-to-Coruscant combo.

-Got a chuckle that the rebel fighter says the same line to 3PO he does the original pilot from the real Star Tours.

-3PO as the pilot isn't as fun as having another robot.

-The musical cues on my path were all from the OT, even at Coruscant.

-Really?  Rebel spies on our ship?

-Skip it.

PS - Disneyland, your "STARCADE" arcade is now another giftshop.  Take away that sign that taunts me by reminding me of the glory that once stood in its place.  Strange to consider Disney a place with a good arcade, but it was solid.  Still a few games in there now, but not even half.

Is there still an X-Wing hanging from the ceiling in the upper level of the Starcade?

@Wook  There's one in the Star Tours gift shop, but not at Starcade.  For some reason those escalators are still in there, they've been roped off for years and I don't think they're officially used for anything.  Tomorrowland could really use a refab if only due to all the abandoned space.

@Frink: I knew you were going to say that.  No, really, I did.

They must have moved it then.

I'm glad I visited Starcade during it's Tron phase in the 80's.

If I was running the joint, there would be a Cantina themed eatery upstairs, with an animatronic alien band playing, and blue milk dispensers.
