    Post Star Tours Closing for 1 Year Rehab & GMR News

    I've just been informed that Star Tours will be closing soon (supposedly within the next 6 months) for a one year rehab that will totally refresh the attraction. When it reopens you can expect:

    Newly Refurbished Simulators
    New Special Effects
    New 3-D HD Video Screens
    New Animatronics
    A New Story Encompassing All Six Films

    Star Wars Fans don't worry though, as the addition of a Star Wars Scene to the Great Movie Ride is imminent, and hopefully will be open before the rehab on Star Tours begins.

    Let's see what happens!

    Thanks for the info Bill. Sounds awesome.

    I'd also assume that Disneyland's Star Tours will soon be closed as well.

    Yup, posted it there too... though Disneyland is getting a lot more Star Wars stuff in all of Tomorrowland as far as I know.

    Someone who posts here had mentioned (a couple of months back or more) that it would be closing for the refurb. Glad it's finally happening!

    Yes! This is great news! I didn't expect for it to be closing so quickly.

    I'll gladly trade the alien section for Star Wars. It had become real dull for me.

    Good I never liked that part of the ride. I also hope they do something with the Tarzan section, I always thought that part was lame especially after did their own Tarzan movie. The rest of it I actually like especially the Wizard of Oz room. But I wouldn't mind if certain parts of the ride were updated (just not replaced entirely).

    Really....Oh well to each his own I guess. To me the Alien section looked cheap like something you might find at Universal.

    I actually always did like the Alien section but being a huge Star Wars fan, I'll take that over Alien any day. I still think the Fantasmic scene is the one in most need of being replaced.

    There's hardly any room in that area is there?

    In fariness Universal aren't cheap, they're just not good. (nah I do like Universal but it will never touch Disney). I hate the GMR full stop, the concept, the so-easily-outdatedness, I just hate it. I'd rather them rip the thing out and replace it with Cinemagique (I think many who have been on both mihgt agree with me there)
