  • [Question] Star Tours Update info request.

    Hey any news about when the new Star Tours update will be coming to TDL? Also is TDL the first place that will have the update?
    any information or thoughts?
    thanks

    Re: Star Tours Update info request.

    I too would like to know(even though I live too far away from TDL.). Is TDL still going to have the upgrade?(Because, I remember that Star Tours 2 was originally going to DL and WDW, then WDW backed out and TDL steped in; then recently, at the D23 Expo, it was anounced that both DL and WDW would receive ST2, not TDL.) So, I think Star Tours 2 will be coming to TDL at a later time(Someone correct me if I am wrong.)

              I think its only a matter of time before the Star Tours Update ends up in Tokyo. OLC Management will likely be some of the first people out to Anaheim to check it out in 2011. But at the moment the park really does not need that attraction. Star Tours is located in Tomorrowland in an area already gridlocked because of the popularity of Monsters Inc, Space Mountain and One Man's Dream II. By adding Star Tours update so soon would cause an operations nightmare for that small area of the park.

                That is quite a valid point. I saw the pictures of the lines the first time Star Tours opened at TDL...

                  If I am not mistaken.. it was rumored at some point that Lucas was developing the Start Tours upgrade for TDL, at the request of OLC. Reason why the US parks are getting it? But that is only rumor and hearsay.

                      Whoa,
                      check this link out

                      ....looks pretty much a go for 2011 but in Disneyland? Thats cool though because after I come to Japan for holiday 2010. Im gonna go back to Disneyland Halloween 2011. (Then Its WDW for HanuChristmaKwanzaakah 2012!)

                      Let me know if you hear the final word on Star Tours in Tokyo. I thought that was where it was going, but you know Disneyland always wants to be the first to have the good stuff.

                      thanks

                          Re: Star Tours Update info request.

                          In a conversation I had with an Imagineer about a year ago it seemed very implicit that they would be flying out to install the Tokyo edition shortly after they finished with the one in California.

                          No idea how that works now though with so many other projects also going, but I'd assume that Tokyo will make the switch pretty quickly after it hits the states.

                            Will there be any unique touches to TDL's?(I remember that they have the ride films from Horizons and lots of other fun stuff.)

                              Hopefully if it does get updated, it won't be soon. I want to experience the original one more time before it's gone.

                                Although no news from Japan, I would assume that the OLC would want to update the attraction since they are always willing to improve upon & make additions to the parks.

                                I am a little confused over WDW though. I did read the links above regarding the upgrade at DL and WDW, but am wondering if some of this is true or not.

                                I did attend D23 & attended the presentation by Jay Rasulo & they did mention the future of Disneyland Star Tours, but don't recall anything being said about WDW at that time. I've been hearing it from other sources on the internet, but had also heard talk of WDW not wanting to do the upgrade in Disney Studios yet.

                                It would be great if all parks get the upgrade at some time in the future.

                                One thing I do notice each time I visit Tokyo Disneyland though- I've never experienced a long wait time for Star Tours- so I don't think it's nearly as popular as it used to be. Figuring the rough timeline, I think Monsters Inc would calm down in a few years, which would give the edge for an update to Star Tours there- Why would the OLC turn away the opportunity for additional attendance and new merchandise opportunities for the park?
