On the train today the announced to hurry and ride Star Tour because it is shutting down in Aug and not openning to summer 2011 as star tours 2 and a new destination. This news made me very excited.
I thought it was scheduled to close Oct. With a 9 month down-time ... and by up by Spring.
I don't understand why it would take a whole year.
I heard it twice by two different people on two different trains so I would believe it is true.
If it's not on a school day, I want to get the last ride on Star Tours. Could someone (preferably a CM in Star Tours/Tomorrowland vicinity) please notify me a confirmed last day of operation?

Hi disneylandkitty. Welcome to the party, but you are a little late.
Why is it closed for so long? It's just a new video and some motion programing.
I hope it goes down this summer so it will be done when they say it will open (and not get pushed back)
As long as it's late August, they can go for it.

This news has been out for about 1/2 a year now.
There have been rumors of newer effects such as side panels and things that bring the ride right into the cabin.
Hopefully the long down time will mean that more is happening than just a new vid and some effects. I'm all for a complete overhaul at this point. Can't wait for this attraction.
It isn't the last trip to Endor though. There's going to be four different ride videos, one for each Speeder. The Endor video will remain, just re-done for 3D.

Also the queue is most likley going to be changed too.
