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. Star Tours completed its first major overhaul in decades in 2011, with a new story based on the "pod racing" scene from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The new version has lots of dips, turns, twists, and climbs as your vehicle goes through an intergalactic version of the chariot race in Ben-Hur. The new 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 combination of film segments twice.
An interactive show, Jedi Training Academy, is staged several times daily to the left of the Star Tours building entrance, opposite Backlot Express.
- This attraction offers FASTPASS.
- Open for Morning Extra Magic Hour.

Expect waits not to exceed 35-45 minutes on unusually busy days. For the first couple of hours the park is open, expect a wait of 25 minutes or less. Even so, ride before 11 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.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue when you visit on a day with a given Disney's Hollywood Studios Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Star Tours: The Adventures Continue Wait Times.
Expectant mothers and anyone prone to motion sickness are advised against riding. Too intense for many children younger than age 8; 40"minimum height requirement.
