The End of a Star Tours Era
Walt Disney World has announced a final farewell to the current version of the popular attraction, Star Tours, which is based on the original Star Wars movie series.
Beginning August 14, 2010, guests may experience a hard-ticketed event at the Studios, held from 8:00pm to 1:00am, called Last Tour to Endor.
The event will feature themed party zones, Star Wars shows, Death Star Disco, and a Symphony in the Stars fireworks show. Tickets cost $75, and it’s unclear whether this will be a one-night event, or will last several nights.
Regardless, once the attraction thrills its final guests, work will begin to transform it into Star Tours II 3-D, expected to open in 2011.
