Description And Comments

Based on the Star Wars movie series, this was Disney's first modern simulator ride. Guests ride in a flight simulator modeled after those used for training pilots and astronauts. You experience dips, turns, twists, and climbs as your vehicle goes through an intergalactic version of the chariot race in Ben-Hur. The ride film is projected in high-definition 3-D and has more than 50 combinations of opening and ending scenes. You could ride Star Tours all day without seeing the same film segment twice.

An interactive show, Jedi Training Academy, is staged several times daily to the left of the Star Tours building entrance.

Touring Tips

Try to ride before 10 a.m. or use FastPass+. If you have young children (or anyone) who is apprehensive about this attraction, ask the attendant about switching off. Watch for throngs arriving from performances of the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!. If you encounter a long line, try again later.

A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY GETS A LITTLE CLOSER

It’s taken far longer than expected for Disney’s board of directors to approve plans for the Studios’s new Star Wars–themed land, planned for the vicinity of Streets of America and Mickey Avenue. But since Disney is reportedly spending upwards of $500 million, they want enough “wow” to ensure they can compete with the Wizarding World attractions at Universal. Look for construction to get started in 2016.
