In conjunction with the Star Wars Celebration V taking place in Orlando August 12-15, 2010, guests to have an opportunity to be the first to be the last to ride Star Tours before its October closure prior to its conversion into a newer version of the attraction. The “Last Tour to Endor” event will take place on August 14 from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
This event will take place “after-hours” and as such will require a separate entry ticket. Besides the Star Tours attraction, there will be specially-themed party zones, Star Wars shows, a “Death Star Disco” and “Symphony in the Stars,” a Star Wars-themed fireworks show. Tickets to the event are on sale now at a cost $75 per person.
While the event is called “Last Tour to Endor,” the attraction is not closing for refurbishment immediately following the event but rather will close, as originally announced, this October.
