Back on July 7th of last year I posted an article entitled The Last Tour to Endor in which I wrote about how Star Tours, the Star Wars ride that was at Disney’s MGM (now Disney’s Hollywood) Studios, was closing down for an overhaul. It seems as if it is now ready to be re-opened.

As part of a media gathering Tuesday night to celebrate the launch of the Disney Dream, Walt Disney World President Meg Crofton combined the magic of Disney and the power of the Force to reveal the Grand Opening date for the new Star Tours attraction at Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios in Florida. Meg announced that the 3-D attraction will make its galactic debut May 20.
As youâ€™ve read in past posts from Walt Disney Imagineeringâ€™s Tom Fitzgerald, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue will feature new droids, a new Starspeeder, new destinations and even a new pilot. So, as we celebrate the â€œDreamâ€ aboard the sea we also are looking skyward to a â€œgalaxy far, far awayâ€ in 2011.
Stay tuned for future announcements about the Grand Opening of Star Tours at Disneyland Park in California. Also, let us know in the comments if the â€œObi-Wanna-Beâ€ inside of you plans to experience the new Star Tours this year.
