Tonight is one of those happy sad nights, as of monday Star Tours at Disneyland will be closing. But not to worry its not for good. They are just closing it to give it a face lift and should be reopened in a few months. So in honor of it I headed down to Disneyland after work for one last trip into space with Rex our favorite bumbling pilot droid (who we cant forget has the voice of Pee Wee Herman).
Now what you may or may not know is that I was also at the Grand Opening of the ride back in 1987 when the park stayed open for 60 straight hours. And that this ride has always had a special place in my heart. With everything from jumping over the rail to take a photo with one of the droids, to faking that I had my seat belt on and then falling a whole row forward in the middle of the ride. So I am sad to see it go but... I am really looking forward to the new face lift and hope it brings me even more memories. Enjoy the photos and the video of the whole ride that I took tonight.
May The Force Be With You. ALWAYS
