  • [Pictures] Star Trader opens May 6th - Pics

    Hey folks, Disney finally opened the Star Trader today. This was two days later than planned but getting the job done right is better than just getting the job done. Here's a look.





    You walk in and are immediately faced with the huge X-wing that used to reside above the Starcade.


    Looking to the left.


    All of the registers have been pushed off to the walls and the floor is opened up for more shopping.






    On interesting touch is this animated shadows moving towards the Star Tours show building.
    Notice a familiar shadow up there?








    But they still have the Ed Hardy crap in Tomorrowland




    Now onto the area where Star Tours will exit.












    This area holds interesting little references.


    The decor above as one enters the main shop again



    On kind of a bummer note I get the feeling that Starcade
    will become more shop now than arcade.








    Overall I really thing they did a great job here. You should go take a look.

      Thank you Fishy!

      Does it look like they chopped the top wings off of the x wing fighter? I think I like it, but it doesn't quite look like it fits.

      Love the new special effects.

          They kept the pseudo-temporary Starcade shop complete with the trashy register table?

          Why?

          (otherwise awesome)

            They just have the wings in regular, non combat position.



            At about :43, is when the "Lock s-foils into attack position" command is given, and they switch to the actual X-Wing look.

                  Great pictures. I think the place looks great. Less arcade is OK with me.

                    I think it's supposed to look like that, gives it a battle-worn feel. The rebels weren't using brand new, top of the line stuff for the most part after all.

                        Just a bit of 'carbon scoring' from some space battles no doubt.

                        I ADORE that they have the Xwing in the show. I noticed that it was gone from the window while waiting for Space Mountain the other day. Great addition to the store. Can't wait to see it in person.
                        I open a toy, review it and take mediocore pictures. Read all about it HERE!

                          I just got back from the park. The Star Trader looks incredible (minus all of the people). The UFO's really blend in with the one outside for the DVC, and the animated figures "walking" are way rad. My jaw dropped when I saw the X-Wing back somewhere where it can be appreciated. I also noticed the decor above the entryway from the ride exit to the store, nice details they put there. They did a very nice job overall.

                          That's the idea. Makes it look more "authentic".

                            I never went in the arcade so it doesn't bother me. I'm loving the new layout of the store. Can't wait to see it soon for myself!

                              I was just there on Monday the 2nd and it was closed up tight. The arcade, though, was open with a lot of merchandise.

                              It was too bad that the Peoplemover wasn't moving along the back upper windows!
