Star Tours D23 Final Flight at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom Fantasyland Update – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

After a terrific night a few weeks ago at the Last Tour to Endor, Star Tours really (really!) shut down yesterday with a D23 ” Star Tours Final Flight” event. We also enjoyed a few extra rides on the attraction, being in one of the simulators that was the last trip to Endor for regular park guests (many D23 members were also there as well). This X-Wing Fighter is used in Star Wars Weekends, and the pilot posed for photos throughout the event (below, left). The giant flight information screen (below, right) promises forthcoming adventures to Hoth, Tatooine and Dagobah

A Starspeeder 3000 (below, left) will be replaced with the Starspeeder 1000. During the D23 event, Stormtroopers kept watch – even riding with us! (below, right).

Video #1 – Star Tours Final Flight 9/7/10 – Star Tours Final Flight, Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Pre Boarding activities.

We were told that the hostess in the Star Tours video (below, left) is Jenifer Lewis, who provided the voice for Mama Odie in The Princess and the Frog. The IMDB also lists her as the actress here. D23 members share a laugh (below, right) and take photos on the last flight.

One of the three Stormtroopers in our ride vehicle sat in front of us (below, right). They barely let me get out of the area unscathed after the ride! (below, right).

Video #2 – D23 Star Tours Final Flight 9/7/10 Disney’s Hollywood Studios with Stormtroopers – We were not only at the D23 Star Tours final flight but also the Last Tour to Endor final flight that night (we have full video from the evening HERE), This is the last ride ever (there were 6 simulators going at the same time), we had 3 Stormtroopers in our car.

Stormtroopers (below, left) pose for one more photo as they let us know (in no uncertain terms!) that it was time to go. Star Tours cast members close the doors to guests one last time (below, right).

Star Tours cast members pose with Stormtroopers and Barry from D23 (below, left). The Stormtroopers gathered again around the X-Wing Fighter and it’s pilot (below, right).

A lone Stormtrooper stands guard at the Crossroads of the World (below, left). The group of Stormtroopers form a line for a photo before they end their shift (below, right).

Over at the Magic Kingdom, the sign is up for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (below, left). There aren’t any dates on the sign this year like normal. Pumpkins have been added to the front of the Main Street USA Railroad Station (below, right).

We didn’t expect to see Mickey’s Toontown Fair again decorated for the holidays, but a reprieve was made for it this year and Halloween decorations are now up! (below, left). Minnie’s house has it’s pumpkin situated in the front yard (below, right).

Red and black cards from Alice in Wonderland are part of the decorations on the “Treat Trail” that will be part of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! (below left and right)

We rode Dumbo The Flying Elephant (below, left) for another soaring view above Fantasyland (below, right).

A lot of work is going on behind the wall, and we are looking forward to seeing the progress! (below left and right)

Video #3 – Fantasyland Construction from Dumbo 9/7/10 Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World – This is Fantasyland Construction shot from Dumbo 9/7/10 at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom – To avoid getting dizzy we suggest using the pause frequently 🙂
