KevinYee: Time Warp

Not everyone got to go to the D23 “Final Flight” event in Florida. However, Kevin Yee did. What is more, Kevin takes us along for the ride. Kevin writes, “I had a deeper reason, though, to be invested in this particular attraction. You see, the history of Star Tours in the theme parks is essentially my history with the Disney parks. I felt a connection to this ride that I feel to few others.”

Kevin Yee: Time Warp Again

Kevin does double duty on Star Tours this month with a second interesting story which reveals interesting information on the development of the original Star Tours attraction.
