Star Tours Disney World

Star Tours was an exciting and immersive motion simulator attraction located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort. The attraction was based on the iconic Star Wars film franchise and allowed guests to embark on an intergalactic adventure through the galaxy far, far away.

Upon entering Star Tours, guests found themselves in a spaceport terminal with droids, Star Wars characters, and references to the beloved film series. The queue area was filled with details that transported visitors into the Star Wars universe, setting the stage for an unforgettable experience.

In the ride, guests boarded a Starspeeder 1000, a transport spacecraft, for a thrilling journey through different Star Wars planets and iconic scenes. The ride used motion simulators, 3D projection technology, and special effects to create an immersive and dynamic experience. The flight sequences were randomized, offering guests the opportunity to encounter various characters, locations, and scenarios, making each ride unique.

The adventure was narrated by C-3PO, the lovable protocol droid, who guided the Starspeeder through various missions and encounters with familiar Star Wars characters like Darth Vader, Yoda, Princess Leia, and more.

Star Tours combined the excitement of space travel with the beloved characters and storytelling of Star Wars, making it a must-visit attraction for fans of all ages. The ride was a fantastic way to immerse oneself in the epic Star Wars universe and experience thrilling space battles and daring escapes.

As with all Disney theme park attractions, it’s essential to check the official Disney website or the My Disney Experience app for the most current information on attractions, operating hours, and any updates related to Star Tours. Although the attraction has been popular since its opening, Disney continuously evolves its offerings to provide new experiences, ensuring guests have a galaxy of adventures to explore during their visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
