Set in the Star Wars galaxy, you're a casual tourist who has paid the Star Tours company to give you a nice little trip to the far moon of Endor. However, you quickly find yourself plunged into the largest space battle ever!
Attraction In-Depth

The setting is you're just an average person trying to get to Endor on a cheap fare. You decide to hire Star Tours to get you there, but something goes wrong(which seemingly is always the case). Your ship is suddenly caught in a galactic battle between the Empire and the Rebels. All of a sudden, you're a critical part to saving the galaxy and protecting all things good. All hell breaks loose and you want more.


Star Tours is a thrilling motion simulator attraction based on the Star Wars films. For fans of the Star Wars films, Star Tours is sure to be the next best thing to being cast in a Star Wars film. What's great about the attraction is that it plays on a few levels. One, is for the Star Wars fans; Anyone who always wished they could hop into the cockpit of an X-Wing and show Darth Vader a thing or two or wanted to teach that rebel scum a lesson will absolutely love this ride. It's also at the same time a thrilling ride. You don't need to be well versed in Star Wars trivia or be wearing Yoda ears to enjoy this ride. Overall, Star Tours if a thrilling attraction that does an excellent job of representing the Star Wars universe.

The queue line is most impressive with lots of great detail and the ride has lots to offer. The atraction has such a large capacity to handle that waits often aren't that long and you should find wait times at Star Tours manageable throughout the day. Sometimes after a showing of Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular lets out or other rare circumstances make for longer waits than normal but if the wait is more than 20 minutes or so long, check back in again later and odds are the wait should be more manageable.

Because Star Tours is a motion simulator, it can make some guests queezy so if you are prone to motion sickness, you may want to sit this one out. If that is the case, I'd recommend still going through the queue line to enjoy the level of detail this attraction has to offer. You can also inquire into a flight where the motion simulator does not move. If the Cast members aren't too busy, they can quickly set one of the simulators to show the film without the motion so you can enjoy the film without worrying about getting sick.

Please note that Star Tours will be closing on September 8, 2010 to be replaced by Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, a brand new replacement attraction that should be open by May 2011.

Star Tours Review
Our Rating (Out of 5):
Wonderfully themed that any Star Wars fan will appreciate it. A good manifestation of the Star Wars galaxy into a large building. Oh yea, the ride is pretty good too.
Guest Appeal
Motion simulators don't usually sit well with those prone to motion sickness but it's remarkebly smooth.
Disney World Veteran Rating
The sheer amount of excellent theming should make any Disney fan want to just sit and watch everything.
Teen Rating
You'll probably pass swarms of teens outside the entrance as they drool over this attraction.
Lasting Appeal
The ride is now pretty old(relatively speaking) and could use an overhaul.
