    Really - there are only two opening scenes. One with Vader and one with the probe droid. Both involve the rebel spy.

For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

    to be chosen as the rebel spy look for the "no smoking" sign/ readling light bar. that is where the cameras are. stare at them for about 30 seconds during the spiel. without your glasses on is better. sitting on the far outside seats makes it harder to get picked the picture wont be good. try it it seems to work 3 out of 4 times. make a silly face too it helps

    It's during the safety spiel because I always put my glasses on just before the CM leaves and the ride starts and I have never had my pic taken with glasses on. I have been picked probably 35-40% of the time and I always just make a funny face the whole time. It seems to work for me.

    Philosophical question: If a Star Tours vehicle is in a forest and nobody is onboard to ride it, is a rebel spy chosen?

    Note: There is that little "bing" sound while everyone is getting buckled, indicating the photo.

    I was chosen at DL (but not WDW). I was seated towards the middle and I wear glasses.

    at disneyland there is the control panel and you can see there is a touchscreen with all the pictures and they have about 5 secs to pic the rebel spy

    Re: Tips for being chosen as the rebel spy

    Personally I am probably the only person who would like to avoid being chosen as a rebel spy. I'm not comfortable with having any attention aimed towards me, especially during an attraction.

    He knows too much... I think he (or she I guess) IS the rebel spy.

    But seriously, this is extremely accurate. The best advice I've seen on it anywhere actually. And being silly can almost guarantee that you will be chosen (provided that no one else is looking more ridiculous than you).

    Re: Tips for being chosen as the rebel spy

    There are sensors in the seats that can determine how much money you have. If you have the most money, and are therefore more likely to buy the "I am the Rebel Spy" pin should you be chosen, they will pick you.

    I know it sounds crazy, but the time I was chosen I did buy the pin...

    My top tip? Be under ten years of age. You're sure to get picked sooner or later.
