    While Star Tours 2 is old news here in the US, it's an incredible upgrade to the ride and really makes it worthwhile riding repeatedly. It will be a huge hit at Tokyo Disneyland.

    What do you think of the FP location for Star Tours? It was really smart of them to put it out of the way to avoid a bottleneck in that area but it's maybe too close to the lottery area?

    Well, with the crowds for Monster's Inc, and the specialty items at Cosmic encounters, I don't think they had much choice. Couldn't put it at that end.

    I won't see it until October. I hope the lines die down by then! Still have never made it onto Toy Story Mania at DisneySEA! Perhaps this trip in April.

    My conflicting views on the Hitchhiking Ghosts Easter egg:

    Star Wars Canon Nerd: "Since when did RX-24 have thumbs?"

    Disney Fan: "Haunted Mansion reference, EPIC."

    Looks like Tokyo will be a great addition to the Star Tours spaceports.

    We'll be there for the "grand opening" of Star Tours 2.0.

    Having seen the attraction at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, we were planning on skipping it since there are unique things to do (and we assume Star Tours will be incredibly popular over there), but we have 5 days in the parks and those photos of the queue have me convinced that we should do it...

    Anyone know if there will be a ribbon cutting or anything of the sort on May 7th?

    WDWFigment: I would give you this advice. Get on line outside the gates TWO hours before park opening if you are going on opening day. When the gates go up and you get in, RUN RUN RUN to Star Tours (down the main street of World Bazaar and take a hard right at West Center Street, which is on the RIGHT in Tokyo). Go right to the attraction and ride it (do not get a FastPass). When you come out, go directly to Monster's Inc. and get a FastPass. Then walk briskly to Pooh's Hunny Hunt and ride it. That should start your day off right and it's the only way (assuming the locals behave the same way they do for Toy Story Mania) that you'll see Star Tours.

    Or you can skip Star Tours and take advantage of the way it's going to suck the opening hour crowds away from Monster's Inc. and Pooh's Hunny Hunt, and just about every other ride in the park.

    If you are interested in watching the ceremony I wouldn't go get FPs and ride attractions. I'd go straight to where the ceremony is going to be a wait.

    I love what they've done with the first hangar bay of the queue, how the lighting and music seems to sync up with what's currently being displayed on the "Billboard".

    Can't wait to experience it for myself.

    I rode it a few times already. The ride is the same, but the pre show area is unique to TDL-it's a half hour loop that you really can't see the whole thing just waiting in line-unless you stand off to the side and watch it like I did.

    TDR always does better. I only wish they did more to the outside to be more Star Wars themed, but you'll still get no complaints from me.

    The hitchhiking droids are great.

    I saw some of the merchandise coming when the ride opens, they have a page in the latest issue of Disney Fan, but I'll be gone by then- oh well, I'll just have to come back in November for my usual trip.
