Will You Be on the Last Tour to Endor at Disney’s Hollywood Studios?

Last Tour to EndorThis year commemorates the 30th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.  It is also the 5th year of the Star Wars Celebration event which will be held this year at the Orange County Convention Center August 12th through the 15th.  To coincide with this event, Disney has created a special experience just for Star Wars Fans… so ready your podracer to head on down for the Last Tour to Endor!

Last Tour to Endor…what do you mean?  After more than a decade of interstellar travel, Disney Parks’ Star Tours attraction is powering down to make way for its reimagining in 2011 – but Last Tour to Endor offers fans the opportunity to attend an out of-this-world, first-of-its-kind decommissioning party before Star Tours launches its final flights. Taking place on August 14 from 8:00pm – 1:00am at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Last Tour to Endor is a special event on the Saturday night of Star Wars Celebration V – THE official Lucasfilm fan convention and the biggest Star Wars party in the galaxy!

Fans and families attending Last Tour to Endor at the Walt Disney World Resort can enjoy a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience – including specially-themed intergalactic party zones, Star Wars shows, a Death Star Disco and much more. The evening will culminate with Symphony in the Stars – a Star Wars fireworks spectacular as only Disney Parks can create. Though the party begins at 8:00pm, Last Tour ticket-holders will also be allowed early entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at 4:00pm – where they can be sure to secure a seat one of the StarSpeeder 3000’s final voyages!

The cost for this event is $75 plus tax and quantities are limited so be sure and visit the official Last Tour to Endor site to book this event before it sells out.

Until Next Time,
